Why is Orthodontics Important?
Attaining an attractive smile and improved self-image are only two benefits of orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics can also work to alleviate and prevent physical health problems that might impact your overall health. Without treatment, orthodontic problems can lead to gum disease, bone loss, tooth decay, chewing and digestive problems, speech impairments, tooth loss or excess wearing down of the teeth and other dental conditions that can cause lasting effects on your overall health.
Why should you choose an orthodontic specialist?
Teeth, and sometimes entire facial structures, are permanently changed by orthodontic treatment. It is important that the treatment be appropriate and properly completed. All orthodontists are dentists however only 6% of dentists are orthodontists. Orthodontists attend an additional two to three years of a residency after dental school to specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities.
