Orthodontics for All Ages

Caring for Braces

Orthodontics is a specialty field of dentistry that addresses irregularities of the teeth and face. Orthodontists use braces, retainers, and dental appliances to treat conditions like an irregular “bite” (such as an overbite or under bite), straighten teeth, eliminate gaps, and appropriately align teeth and lips. While braces for kids are commonly associated with this form of dentistry, it can also be helpful for adults. Some orthodontists will treat patients in need of cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, issues with the eruption of the permanent teeth and jaw growth.

Visits to the orthodontist are optional, unlike routine trips to the dentist. Orthodontics can enhance chewing or speech and improve appearance by realigning teeth and jaw lines. These attributes give many people greater self-confidence, improving mental and physical health outcomes. While cosmetic in nature, orthodontics can provide benefits to your dental health for life—a primary reason for investing in braces for kids. Properly aligned teeth are easier to care for.  Brushing and flossing is easier, lowering the risk of tooth decay. Orthodontics can also help to prevent gingivitis, which is a precursor to periodontitis, the more serious form of gum disease that destroys the bone around the teeth.

Your overall health can benefit from orthodontics, too. People who have a misaligned bite may achieve added health benefits from orthodontics, since a bad bite can cause problems with chewing, inhibiting the absorption of nutrients from some foods.  A bad bite or misaligned teeth can also lead to speech difficulties, which often requires a combination of orthodontics and speech therapy. Correcting a misaligned bite with braces can help to prevent premature wear of back teeth surfaces. Front teeth that don’t align properly can lead to greater wear and tear on the back teeth.

Screening your kids for orthodontics after the age of 7 is valuable to their future health. While braces can benefit anyone, orthodontic treatment is more complex for adults. Correcting oral issues and getting the proper dental care at an early age can improve outcomes for life and affordable braces or orthodontic payment plans are available.
