The Benefits Of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment, whether in the form of traditional braces and Invisalign clear aligners, can radically transform your smile. More and more adults are choosing to improve their smiles. If you are interested in a new smile for yourself or your teen and would like to know more, please reach out to your dentists at Sudbury Family Dental Care in Sudbury, MA, Dr. Maria Elizondo Marinescu, Dr. Sorin Marinescu, and their associates.

More than Aesthetics

Orthodontic work can certainly improve the way your smile looks. Correcting crooked and crowded teeth, as well as common bite-related conditions, can make for an attractive smile, but these improvements can accomplish so much more.

Overbites, underbites, and crossbites, for example, can create problems with your jaw, often referred to as temporomandibular disorders (TMD), which can include issues like clicking sounds when you eat or speak, and possibly discomfort or pain.

These conditions can also alter the arrangement of your teeth and wear away the enamel over time on ones that rub against one another. Which can expose your teeth to the damaging effects of plaque and decay.

Overcrowded teeth can further exacerbate this problem by creating difficult to clean areas that can allow plaque to build up. In both instances, the bacteria that exist in plaque and tartar will continue to damage tooth structure and gums, eventually causing gum disease.
