Orthodontics is an area of Cosmetic Dentistry that deals with the jaw and teeth. When teeth or jaws are not positioned properly, seeing an orthodontist is imperative because crooked and spaced teeth are difficult to keep clean, which can affect your oral and overall health. Due to teeth being crooked or crowded, it is harder for teeth to be cleaned by brushing and flossing and can progress to gum disease and tooth decay.
Crooked teeth can cause additional stress on some of the jaw muscles, which can lead to TMJ syndrome. Neck pain, back and shoulder pain can occur as well.
A Chagger Dental specialist will have a look at your teeth and a treatment plan will be made to go forward. You and your dentist will decide which method of orthodontics will be best for you. Braces or Aligner Therapy such as, Invisalign, SureSmile, or ClearCorrect will be chosen and the process and planned appointments for orthodontics will begin.
