What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics uses fixed or removable appliances to correct the position of teeth and jaws. You may wish to consider orthodontics if your teeth are significantly out of alignment or if they don’t bite together (occlude) correctly.
What Are the Benefits of Orthodontics?
Opting for orthodontics can improve your dental health. If your teeth are significantly overlapping or out of alignment, or if they have spaces in between them that act as food traps, then orthodontics can make them easier to keep clean. This can reduce your risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease and will also help ensure that all the chewing forces are evenly distributed amongst all your teeth. This can reduce the stress on your jaw muscles and joints, reducing the risk of a disorder called TMD or temporomandibular joint disorder.
Of course you can just have orthodontics to improve the look of your smile, particularly as there are several cosmetic braces that only work on moving the front teeth. The benefits can include improved self-esteem and self-confidence and can be well worthwhile.
Cfast Braces can correct the position of the front teeth in as little as eight weeks.
