Having crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw not only causes cosmetic issues, but these concerns can also lead to dental health problems such as pain and stiffness, temporomandibular joint disorder, speech problems, unevenly worn teeth, and more.
At Eastgate Dental Excellence, our dentists offer a variety of orthodontic treatments, including teeth alignment with InvisalignⓇ, designed to address and correct malocclusion and jaw and teeth alignment for a more attractive and comfortable smile.
What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the correction and treatment of malpositioned and misaligned teeth, malocclusion (misaligned bite patterns), and malpositioned jaws.
Additionally, pediatric orthodontics also diagnoses, treats, and corrects growth issues in children to prevent more serious orthodontic problems from occurring. These issues are often more easily addressed before a child has finished developing.
What Issues Can Orthodontics Address?
Orthodontic treatment can correct and address a variety of dental health concerns including:
- Malocclusion (open bite, crossbite, overbite, and underbite)
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps or spaces between the teeth
- Protruding top front teeth
- Unmatched dental midlines
- Misaligned jaw
- Abnormal jaw growth
- Temporomandibular joint disorders
Orthodontic Restoration Services
While clear aligners from Invisalign do not result in any new cosmetic issues following treatments, traditional metal orthodontic appliances can.
After having an orthodontic appliance removed, you might notice discoloration, abnormal wear, or even fracturing on your teeth. Although these results can be disappointing, they can be easily corrected so that you can start to really enjoy your straighter smile.
If you experience any cosmetic issues with your teeth following treatment with orthodontics, we can correct the appearance of your teeth and repair any damage from metal orthodontic appliances using a variety of cosmetic treatments. This might include a simple course of professional teeth whitening treatments to break up and lift stains or dental bonding to repair fractures or chips.
Additionally, we can provide you with treatment such as retainers to maintain your newly aligned smile and prevent your teeth from drifting back to their old, misaligned positions.
