Our Cheney Dentist Reviews When And Why Orthodontic Treatment Is Used

Written by Dr. Collins on Dec 19, 2017

Improving your dental alignment can make a big difference to both the appearance and the health of your smile. Our Cheney dentists are here to give you some more information about the situations in which orthodontic treatment can be useful. As you’ll see, orthodontic treatment has a number of applications in the world of dentistry.

Most patients think of orthodontic treatment as a solution to aesthetic issues. You can…

  • Close gaps between teeth to create a more seamless smile
  • Straighten crooked and crowded teeth
  • Widen the smile so that it looks better proportioned

Achieving these aesthetic results can help you feel confident about your smile, and more outgoing in social situations. We’ve seen first-hand how powerful cosmetic dentistry results can be.

Orthodontic treatment can also help to improve the function of your smile. People who suffer from bite problems, for example—like crossbites, overbites, and underbites—are at an increased risk of developing uneven dental wear and tear as well as unexpected dental damage. Orthodontic treatment can fix these bite issues, so that the patient’s top and bottom teeth come together comfortably and naturally. This will also minimize your risk of developing TMJ issues in the future.

When you come in for a consultation with our Cheney dentists, we’ll be able to evaluate your smile, and give you a better idea of whether or not orthodontic treatment is right for you. We’ll take into account the existing state of your smile as well as your long-term dental goals. Every orthodontic treatment plan is personalized to suit the patient’s unique needs and aesthetic goals.
