Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialty branch of dentistry that focuses on the positioning and appearance of your teeth and jaws. Generally speaking, orthodontists treat bite and alignment issues with braces or clear aligners. They might also suggest palatal expanders or headgear depending on the complexity of your condition.

With their expert knowledge and experience, the team at Comprehensive Family Dentistry can provide you with solutions to any of your orthodontic problems.

When should you see an orthodontist?

You should book an appointment with Comprehensive Family Dentistry if any of your teeth are crooked, if you have bite or alignment issues, or if you have crowded teeth.

During your consultation, your dentist has the opportunity to discuss your full medical and dental history. Your dentist then performs a thorough dental exam to assess the current state of your teeth.

This exam might involve X-rays of your teeth and jaws so your dentist can get a clear view of the work that needs to be done.

What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

At Comprehensive Family Dentistry, your dentist can work to:

  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Close wide gaps
  • Improve your gum and tooth health
  • Prevent wear
  • Treat malocclusions
  • Align your jaws
  • Improve your oral health

What are malocclusions?

Malocclusions refer to the improper alignment of your teeth. In some cases, malocclusions can occur when your teeth and jaws haven’t developed correctly. They might also occur because of injuries to your teeth or facial bones or as a result of thumbsucking.

Thumbsucking, in fact, is the leading cause of malocclusions. Your dentist can help your child develop healthy habits to prevent thumb-sucking.

Orthodontic care is the best kind of care to ensure that your smile is straight, your teeth are healthy, and your gums are protected from gum disease. Comprehensive Family Dentistry offers flexible payment plans through CareCredit® to make sure you can get the orthodontic care you need without breaking the bank.
