When to Visit an Orthodontist

You do everything right when it comes to oral hygiene. You floss every night. You brush at least twice a day. You visit your dentist once a year for your annual visit and you get your teeth cleaned twice a year. Your teeth are as healthy as can be. You have another type of problem. No matter how great your oral hygiene is, you can’t do anything about the position of your teeth. If your teeth are not in proper alignment to give you a phenomenal smile, there’s only one thing you can do. You need to consider seeing our orthodontist in Orlando.

How Can an Orthodontist Help You?

While your dentist can take care of any issues concerning your oral health, an orthodontist is the expert when there are problems with the position of your teeth. These problems can stem from spacing issues, such as crowding or two much space. You may have an issue with your bite. If you have an underbite or an overbite, our orthodontist is the person to see. Our orthodontist can help you to shift your teeth into the proper position, giving you the smile you have always wanted.

What are Your Options for Orthodontic Treatment?

Our orthodontist will determine your course of treatment based on your unique situation. Corrective appliances and braces are two alternatives that can help you with your teeth. Braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment and are available in many different alternatives, from traditional braces to ceramic braces. Our orthodontist may recommend clear aligners that slide over your teeth. It all depends on your orthodontic problem.

Regardless of what your orthodontic concern is or what form of treatment is advised for you, you will need to be patient. It takes time to move your teeth. Good candidates for orthodontic treatment realize and accept this.

Why See an Orthodontist?

Besides the fact that our orthodontist can help you to enhance your smile, your orthodontic work will also help you to be healthier. You’ll find that you can keep your teeth cleaner when they are no longer affected by spacing issues. You can also avoid problems like TMJ disorders and sleep apnea by teaming up with our orthodontist to take care of concerns with the alignment of your teeth or your bite. You may even wish to take advantage of smile optimizers, such as our teeth whitening services.
