If you have imperfections in your smile such as bite issues or misaligned teeth, you may feel as though this look is simply what you have to live with forever. Fortunately, that is not the case with the help of orthodontics. You can improve the look and functionality of your smile with help from Dr. Edward Yates at Norwich Aesthetic Dentistry in Norwich, CT.
How can orthodontic care help my smile?
Orthodontics focus on treating facial and dental abnormalities and malocclusion, or bad bites. Some of the things orthodontic treatment can treat include:
- misaligned teeth
- overcrowded or overlapped teeth
- under crowded or gapped teeth
- cross bite
- open bite
What are my options for orthodontic care?
While you may envision a smile full of metal brackets and wires when you think about braces, you also have other options to correct your smile. Tooth-colored treatments like ceramic braces blend into your smile to allow for a less noticeable treatment time. Additionally, treatments like Invisalign use clear plastic aligner trays which fit into the mouth to move the teeth. This process works by wearing each tray in a series, one after another until the teeth have reached their final positions.
