Orthodontics is a field of dental care which focuses on correcting irregularities in teeth and jaw alignment. The primary goal of orthodontic treatment is to enhance the harmony and functionality of your oral structures, giving you a more balanced and beautiful smile as well as better oral health and function. Here at Schneider Family Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing you with orthodontic treatment that is effective, comfortable and discreet and will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs.
Our orthodontic treatments include:
Orthodontics can address various dental issues, including:
- Misalignment: When teeth are not properly aligned, they can lead to discomfort and aesthetic concerns.
- Crowded Teeth: Overlapping or crowded teeth not only affect appearance but can also hinder proper oral hygiene.
- Gaps and Spacing: Spaces between teeth can affect your bite and create challenges when eating or speaking.
- Malocclusion (Bad Bites): When the jaws and teeth are not aligned it can both aesthetic and functional issues, impacting your ability to chew and speak normally. Common bad bites include overbites, underbites, open bites or crossbites.
Thanks to advances in the dental field and in treatment technologies, materials and techniques, orthodontic treatment is now faster, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.
While the aesthetic benefits of orthodontics are well known, it is important to understand that proper tooth alignment also plays a crucial role in oral health. Correctly aligned teeth are less prone to dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontics can also enhance your ability to chew, eat and speak effectively.
