Do you know that even if you crack the silliest jokes some people will resist laughing not because they find your joke corny but because they don’t want to show their teeth? Yes, these things happen especially to people with overcrowded and crooked teeth. If you find yourself covering your mouth every time you smile or laugh because you are ashamed to show your teeth then we believe you can greatly benefit from seeing an orthodontist 33304. Here’s why you need to see an orthodontist:
What is an Orthodontist?
Orthodontists are dentists who completed additional years of training usually two to three years besides the four years spent in dental school. They specialize in improving your bite and straightening your teeth through the use of orthodontic devices like braces. The treatment plans they design will depend on your unique case. Nonetheless, your orthodontist’s goal is to make sure that your problem will be addressed whether it’s overcrowding, crooked teeth or a misaligned bite.
Why See an Orthodontist?
In most cases, patients see an orthodontist because their general dentist told them so. You see, there are certain dental problems that your general dentist can’t fix, problems that only an orthodontist can. Crowded and crooked teeth, underbites and overbites, are some of the issues that your orthodontist can treat. If these problems are not addressed it can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and possibly tooth loss since these dental issues predispose you to plaque buildup and tartar formation.
When to See an Orthodontist?
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, parents should bring their children to an orthodontist no later than seven years old with or without problems to check the condition of their teeth and jaws and to catch problems early. Most children (ages 9 and 14) and adults (ages 26-44) receive orthodontic treatment to correct their teeth and their bite.
