Dr. Roya Shoffet is excited to share more about these options and how they can improve your quality of life.

What Can Orthodontics Do For You?

When it comes to orthodontics, there are a few options to consider, such as clear aligners and traditional metal braces. Both methods gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment, resulting in a healthier, more attractive smile. Orthodontics are not just for crooked or misaligned teeth; they can also treat underbite, overbite, and crossbite. 

Although many people opt for orthodontic treatment to improve their smile, correcting orthodontic issues has several benefits, including:

  • Better chewing ability – Chewing food breaks it down into smaller pieces, which then mix with saliva to aid in the absorption of nutrients. Orthodontic issues affecting chewing may hinder the benefits of food consumption
  • Prevent tooth damage – If your teeth are misaligned or crooked, some teeth may have to work harder than others while chewing. This can cause those teeth to experience more wear and tear than the rest, increasing their chances of cracking, fracturing, or suffering from some other type of damage
  • Reduced Risk of TMJ Disorder – The temporomandibular joint is a complex yet powerful joint that can be affected by poor alignment. This may lead to an increased risk of TMJ disorder. Those who suffer from this condition may experience jaw pain, chronic headaches, and other related problems
  • Better Oral Hygiene – If your teeth are crowded and crooked, it can result in tight spaces between them that are hard to clean properly. This can provide an ideal environment for harmful bacteria to thrive, leading to the formation of plaque and tartar. On the other hand, having straight and properly aligned teeth with adequate spacing makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent the buildup of harmful bacteria
