How Will You Know When You Need Dental Braces?

Woman's smile with clear dental braces on teethIndividuals of almost any age will benefit from orthodontic care. Problems such as crooked teeth, overbites, underbites and jaw pain may also be resolved with orthodontics. Although various treatment options are available depending on the circumstances, braces are one of the most common and successful treatments.

Esthetics And Confidence
Some people feel uncomfortable about their teeth because of crowding, spacing, and protrusion. Smiling in photos and in front of people is shameful. Fortunately, orthodontic surgery will help correct these esthetic imperfections and give you the confidence and pride that comes with straight teeth and a beautiful smile.

Orthodontic Relapse
Orthodontic relapse is a disorder in which after surgery, the teeth gradually fall out of alignment. It generally compels patients to go back to a hospital to fix it for another course of orthodontic care. At Fairfield County Orthodontics, we make sure we consider the value of wearing retainers we reduce the likelihood of infection once our patients have completed their treatment.

Pain, Tooth Decay, And Gum Disease
Due of misalignment, teeth can overlap and create small spaces that are difficult to reach for the toothbrushes and floss. Plaque and bacteria can also accumulate, contributing to dental problems such as tooth decay, gum recession, and gum disease. The teeth should be arranged and properly aligned by proper orthodontic care, helping you to brush and floss your teeth more efficiently.

Early Treatment
As most orthodontic conditions can now be handled with Invisalign, it is easier for adults and children of all ages to receive orthodontic care than they ever have expected. The American Association of Orthodontists is proposing a consultation for children at age seven. Many children, usually in the age range of seven to nine years, benefit from an early orthodontic level.
