Why is it important to straighten teeth with orthodontics?
In addition to feeling great about the way you look, straight teeth are essential to good oral health. Properly aligned teeth are healthier, easier to keep clean and function properly. Misalignment, or crooked teeth, can cause some notable oral health issues in both kids and adults.
- Difficulty speaking properly
- Discomfort when chewing
- Fewer restorative options
- Jaw pain and dysfunction
- Teeth grinding
- Periodontal disease
- Dental decay
Dr Nick Malamas offers orthodontic solutions for both children and adults. Traditional braces work best for kids and complex cases and involve using brackets and an adjustable wire to gradually move teeth into proper alignment.
Invisalign offers a discreet alternative for adult patients wishing to straighten their teeth for aesthetic purposes or as part of a restorative treatment plan that may include fillings, bonding, crowns and veneers. Invisalign is often the first phase of a full smile makeover as it improves restorative results.
