Orthodontic Treatment – Correcting More Than Crooked Teeth
Thinking of starting orthodontic treatment – not sure what’s involved and if you really need to straighten your teeth? Deciding to straighten your teeth can be a big decision – especially if you haven’t been explained all the advantages that come with a healthy bite. The Orthodontists at Vancouver Orthostyle™ want patients to know that orthodontic treatment isn’t just about straight teeth – but involves creating a healthy dental system for life.
Why Do You Need Orthodontics?
Your General Dentist has referred you to a Certified Orthodontist – but you’re not 100% sure why you need orthodontic treatment? Sure you’re teeth are a little out of place, but that’s not uncommon – so why are you about to embark on an adventure with a Vancouver Orthodontist? The truth is that there are numerous reasons why patients are referred to orthodontists – some reasons are really obvious and involve severely misaligned teeth that can impact a patient’s ability to chew food. Other patient’s may have a narrow upper arch that needs help developing so that teeth have enough room to erupt. Then there are the patients who have been referred for TMD/TMJ issues that may benefit from improving the relationship of top and bottom teeth. Then we’ve got openbites, crossbites, congenitally missing teeth and jaw surgery cases – all of which require orthodontic treatment to correct and/or improve arch and tooth relationships. There are many different reasons why patients need orthodontic treatment – but the goal is to create a healthy bite that addresses genetic and environmental factors.
