Orthodontics ensures that teeth are positioned correctly in the mouth and jaw – misaligned or poorly-shaped teeth can wear at tooth enamel, create stress fractures in the teeth, put undue strain on the jaw muscles, and even lead to TMJ Syndrome. Crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, gaps between teeth, and other misalignments can all lead to longer-term harm to your overall dental health.
The knowledgeable dentists at Premier Care Dental Group understand that straightening teeth is not just about an outwardly beautiful smile, but about keeping teeth, gums, roots, and jaw muscles healthy for years. Straighter teeth reduce stress on the jaw, muscles, teeth, and gums, and the whole mouth is easier to brush and floss.
For most people, dental braces are synonymous with orthodontic dentistry. Braces are very different today than a few decades ago – they are can now be made from a variety of materials. They are much smaller and more comfortable, with better adhesion to teeth, so patients do not have to worry as much about eating the wrong thing and breaking a wire. The length of treatment with braces is also typically shorter, because they are more effective overall.
At Premier Care Dental Group, we also proudly offer Invisalign for our patients. Instead of metal or plastic braces and wires glued to the teeth to straighten them, Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners, which are removable and nearly invisible – thus, the name! You can work toward a perfect smile without struggling through bulky or embarrassing braces.
