What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral and facial irregularities. The practice of orthodontics requires the use of corrective appliances, such as braces or aligners, to correct misaligned teeth and jaws. Through orthodontics, patients can achieve a perfect smile and improved oral health.
Benefits Of Orthodontics
Correcting the alignment of the smile offers numerous benefits—not only to the confidence of the patient but also to their overall health. While there are numerous aesthetic outcomes of orthodontic treatment, such as a perfectly aligned smile, the advantages extend well beyond what you can see. These benefits include the following:
Aligning the teeth and jaws can help improve the patient’s ability to chew and digest food. This is because when the teeth are properly aligned, they can more easily break down food particles, making digestion more efficient.
Better Oral Hygiene
Crooked teeth may be difficult to keep free of food particles—leading to an increased risk of decay and gum disease. Having properly aligned teeth and jaws makes it easier for patients to brush and floss, which can lead to healthier teeth and gum tissue.
Prevention Of TMJ Disorder
Misaligned teeth and jaws can lead to TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder. This is because the improper bite places excess tension on the temporomandibular joint, leading to pain and discomfort. Orthodontic treatment can help relieve this pressure and improve the patient’s quality of life.
Orthodontic treatment can help improve the clarity of speech by correcting misaligned teeth and jaw problems. Speech impediments and difficulty when pronouncing certain words can be addressed with the proper treatment plan and orthodontic appliance.
When the smile is improved, patients feel their best. Achieving a perfect smile can give patients the confidence to excel in both professional and social aspects of life.
