Orthodontics is a field of dental specialty dedicated to corrected irregularities in how your teeth and jaw fit together. Through orthodontics, our dentists can correct problems such as:
- Bad bites (overbites, underbites, open bites, crossbites, etc.)
- Misaligned teeth
- Crowded and crooked teeth
- Teeth with gaps and spaces between them
While many people consider orthodontics to be purely aesthetic, the truth is that orthodontic treatment is highly beneficial for your oral health and function. When your teeth are properly aligned, they not only look better but are easier to keep clean and healthy with regular brushing and flossing. This puts you at a much lower risk for developing dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment also makes it easier for you to perform normal daily actions such as chewing and speaking.
For All Ages
We are pleased to offer orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages here at our office. We recommend that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation from our dentists around age 7, as this will help determine if orthodontic treatment is needed and when it should begin. The teenage years are often a good time to receive orthodontics, and of course, adults can also receive the care they need to align their smile. It is never too late to achieve the smile of your dreams.
Our dentists and team offer early orthodontic treatment for younger children. Sometimes known as preventive or interceptive orthodontics, this type of treatment is recommended when problems are identified in earlier stages of your child’s oral development. By receiving early intervention, our dentists can help reduce or eliminate a number of potential problems for your child, including:
- Jaw misalignment and TMJ disorders
- Harmful oral habits (finger sucking, tongue thrusting, etc.)
- Trauma caused by protruding front teeth
- Speech development issues
- Airway development issues
This early treatment also helps guide your child’s teeth and jaws into their ideal positions as they grow and develop, and it may make any future orthodontic treatments they need shorter and less complicated.
Most people think of traditional metal braces when they think about orthodontic treatment. While this type of care has been common in the past and is still used frequently today, it is no longer the only option available. Here at Joobbani Dental Designs, we offer removable orthodontic treatments using clear aligner therapy. Clear aligners allow you to straighten your teeth and improve your bite and smile without the use of uncomfortable and unsightly brackets and wires. Instead, a discreet plastic aligner works to gently move your teeth into their ideal positions comfortably and nearly invisibly.
