Orthodontics is a dental specialty that involves correcting teeth that are improperly positioned. Shore Family Orthodontics is proud to offer the best and most up-to-date orthodontic services for our patients.
Our orthodontists treat malocclusions which are often called bad bites. This is when a client bites down and their teeth do not line up correctly. We also treat crooked teeth or teeth that simply do not line up correctly. Orthodontists also focus on the development of the facial bones and jaw.
While orthodontics can be considered mostly cosmetic procedures, it is important to fix these problems for a healthy mouth. Teeth that are crooked or do not line up are the perfect place for food and bacteria to hide. They can also be hard to clean, leading to cavities and other problems down the line. The goal in treating problem teeth are to ensure a healthy mouth in the future. It is important to close any gaps between teeth and to make sure that the teeth all line up correctly. Sometimes teeth are crooked and need to be straightened up in the mouth. Orthodontics can also improve eating and even a client’s speech in some cases.
How can these problems be fixed? Braces are the most common treatment though we also treat our clients with headgear, plates, and more. If you have any questions about orthodontics, feel free to contact us today at (732) 775-1492. We would be happy to answer your questions.
