Orthodontic treatment is a technique of straightening your teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. Many patients have crowded or misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment will straighten the teeth or move them into a better position. This can improve facial appearance and the way the teeth bite together, whilst also making them easier to clean.
Some people have upper front teeth that stick out and look unsightly. These teeth are more likely to be damaged. However, with orthodontic treatment, we can move them back into line. The way the upper and lower jaw meets can cause teeth to look unsightly and lead to an incorrect bite. Orthodontic treatment may be able to correct both of these problems.
When the teeth don’t meet correctly, this can put a strain on the muscles of the jaw, causing jaw and joint problems and sometimes headaches. Orthodontic treatment can help you to bite more evenly and reduce the strain.
