Orthodontics is the field of dental care focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, particularly in their alignment. Dr. Jon Glenn typically recommends orthodontic treatment to correct problems such as:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Malocclusion (bad bites), including overbites, underbites, open bites and crossbites
While many people consider orthodontics to be a cosmetic treatment, the truth is that orthodontic care improves your oral health and function as well as the aesthetics of your smile. Teeth which are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing, which, in turn, reduces the risk of dental problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. Orthodontic treatment also improves your ability to perform daily functions such as chewing, eating and speaking properly.
There are several types of orthodontic treatment available for patients of all ages, and advances in orthodontics have made treatment faster, more comfortable and more effective than in years past. When you visit our office for your initial consultation, our dentist will discuss your options and your lifestyle with you to determine which type of treatment is right for your needs.
