Would I Benefit From Orthodontic Treatment?
What your dentist in London, ON, wants you to know about orthodontics
There are many reasons to consider orthodontic treatment, but how do you know if you really need orthodontics? The truth is orthodontics can restore full biting and chewing function by realigning your teeth and your bite so you can chew your food better. Orthodontics can also give you a more pleasing, attractive smile. Dr. Brock Rondeau at Dr. Brock Rondeau & Associates in London, ON, wants to share why you might need orthodontics.
You might need orthodontic treatment to correct poor jaw alignment, tooth rotation, poor tooth positioning, and a number of other issues including:
- Correcting an underbite or overbite
- Correcting a crossbite or open bite
- Closing up gaps between your teeth
- Correcting tooth overlap and crowding
When you choose orthodontic treatment, you will enjoy many benefits. Consider that a straight smile:
- Is easier to floss and keep clean
- Helps your appearance and self-esteem
- Makes it easier to chew the foods you love
Orthodontics can also help prevent problems of jaw wear-and-tear like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues. Poor positioning of your jaws can cause inflammation of the TMJ, leading to headaches and facial pain.
Straightening your teeth can also reduce wear on the surfaces of your teeth. Reduced friction when you bite can reduce the potential that you might injure your tooth and need a filling or root canal in the future.
Dr. Rondeau offers a full range of orthodontic appliances including metal or ceramic braces and Invisalign, the virtually invisible orthodontic treatment.
If you are considering orthodontic treatment, seek out the services of a trained dentist. If you want to achieve a straight smile comfortably, quickly, and easily, seek out Dr. Rondeau.
