So, how do you know if you will benefit from orthodontic treatment? The truth is there are many jaw and tooth alignment problems which can be effectively treated by modern orthodontics including:
- Overbite; your upper jaw protrudes in front of your lower jaw
- Underbite; your lower jaw protrudes in front of your upper jaw
- Crossbite; your jaws cross each other when you bite
- Open bite; your front teeth don’t close when you bite
- Mild to severely crowded or rotated teeth
- Teeth erupting in the wrong position or not erupting at all
- Gaps and spaces between teeth or overlapping teeth
If you have jaw alignment problems and don’t have corrective orthodontic treatment, it can lead to excessive wear on your teeth, grinding and clenching, TMJ pain, headaches, and increased risk of needing root canals and restorative treatment.
If you have tooth alignment problems and don’t have corrective orthodontic treatment, it can lead to increased plaque buildup, hygiene difficulties, dental decay, and wear-and-tear on your teeth, chewing difficulties, and increased risk of needing restorative treatment.
Let’s face it, straight teeth are much easier to clean. Flossing becomes a breeze because you don’t have tight, crowded teeth to fit the floss in between. Clean teeth means less risk of painful dental issues. Proper jaw alignment eases the stress on your jaw joints, face and head, preventing ligament, muscle and joint pain.
