The dream of healthy teeth and a perfect smile is becoming a reality to more and more people every day. Did you know that the number of adults and children taking advantage of orthodontic treatment to improve their dental healt and give their self-esteem a boost has more than doubled since 1984?!
Traditional braces are the most commonly accepted treatment for malocclusion (bad bite). Ideally, your top teeth should extend slightly over your bottom teeth and molars should fit together perfectly. Unfortunately, as a result of an accident, thumbsucking, early loss of teeth, or heredity, this is not the case for many people. Teeth can be crooked, crowded, or twisted. Poor alignment of the top or bottom teeth can result in an overbite, underbite, or crossbite.
Improved appearance is just one reason - and it's an important reason - for orthodontic treatment. Good self-esteem is crucial. Good oral health is also crucial: straight teeth are easier to clean, and therefore orthodontics make a great contribution to your optimal oral and overall health.
Most orthodontic treatment begins when all or most of the permanent teeth have erupted. However, there are times when interceptive treatment is necessary (click here to see why). Because there are benefits of interceptive treatment and consequences of waiting, Dr. Inouye and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend all children see an orthodontist by the age of 7.
