Let's Talk About Orthodontics!

If you want to gain a greater understanding of orthodontics in Frederick, MD, the team at Pearlfection Dentistry is here for you. We have the experience you need, and you can expect great results when it comes to orthodontic treatments. Generally speaking, a treatment is considered orthodontic when it is utilized to correct misaligned teeth, overbites, underbites (malocclusion), and other similar issues. These situations can be caused by missing or crowded teeth, genetics, traumatic injury, and thumb sucking.

Common devices used for teeth alignment and correction include:

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Retainers
  • Invisalign

We typically begin to consider such treatments when children reach the age of seven, as treatment is most effective in children when it occurs between seven and 14 years of age. If you or your child have misaligned teeth, bite or jaw issues, or missing teeth, you may want to consider orthodontic treatment.

In addition to the cosmetic advantages of a straight and beautiful smile, these treatments also provide more significant benefits. Misaligned teeth that are left untreated can begin to cause problems with your jaw and your bite. Good dental hygiene and care help you to maintain healthy teeth and gums, and orthodontic treatment can play an important part in good dental care.
