Read below to find out more about why orthodontic care is necessary.
What is orthodontic care?
Orthodontic care is commonly received by patients during their adolescence. Most patients’ first contact with orthodontic care is braces. However, whether you have received orthodontic care growing up or not, it can still be needed in the future. Orthodontic care involves a range of treatments, all of which seek to correct issues with your bite. Issues that can be corrected with orthodontic care include teeth straightening, an overbite or jaw alignment.
Why is orthodontic treatment necessary?
Orthodontic treatment could be necessary for several reasons. If you are in pain or discomfort with your bite, orthodontic care can help to correct this. Avoiding orthodontic care could lead to other oral health issues developing further down the line – for example, your crooked teeth put you more at risk of developing infection. Perhaps a severe overbite is knocking your confidence and orthodontic treatment would lead to a better quality of life. Your orthodontist will discuss with you when and which treatments could be necessary.
When should you first see an orthodontist?
We recommend that patients first visit an orthodontist when a child’s adult teeth come through. Even if you do not notice any orthodontic issues in your child, it’s still important to monitor their development.
However, as an adult, you should see an orthodontist any time you have a question or concern about your bite. The sooner you see an orthodontist with your concern, the sooner they can rectify your problem. Early intervention is always best when it comes to oral health issues.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment
Orthodontic treatment comes with an array of benefits. Regular orthodontic appointments help to monitor your oral health and prevent any issues from forming.
Technology in orthodontics has advanced. Those of us with ongoing orthodontic issues since childhood can now get them resolved quickly and efficiently. A healthy bite is important at any age, not just for cosmetic purposes.
Here are just some of the benefits of orthodontic treatment:
Discreet – a lot of orthodontic treatments are now discreet, unlike traditional fixed braces. Advancements in technology means you can straighten your smile with treatments like Invisalign. Nobody will even notice that you are wearing clear aligners.
Fast – treatment times are now faster than they have ever been before.
Confidence – orthodontic treatments can completely transform your confidence and self-esteem. What once made you shy of showing off your smile, now helps you to embrace it.
