Orthodontics – Braces for All Ages
When you think of orthodontics, you might envision a teenager with a mouthful of metal. The latest advances in orthodontics have made that image a thing of the past. Braces come in a variety of materials and are used increasingly by adults to correct problems with spacing and to address temporomandibular disorders (TMD).
Orthodontics and Teeth Alignment
Orthodontic treatment is used to correct problems of excessive space between teeth and crooked or crowded teeth. This therapy is also used to correct overbites, underbites and crossbites. The therapy usually involves the use of braces to create spaces or reshape the teeth and jaws.
Orthodontics and Aesthetics
Many adults are also discovering the difference that improved alignment can make to the appearance of their smiles. The use of braces to improve the look of a smile is gaining in popularity. With newer materials, braces are less visible than ever before!
