Orthodontics Q&A

What dental problems can be fixed with orthodontics?

Many people turn to orthodontics to fix cosmetic problems with their teeth. But orthodontics can do more than just straighten your smile. Crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw can also lead to serious dental problems down the road. Orthodontics can improve your appearance and prevent costly dental issues in the future.

Orthodontic treatments can help:

  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Fix crowded teeth
  • Improve jaw alignment
  • Prevent teeth grinding

In the past, patients who needed orthodontics often faced years of clunky braces. But modern orthodontic treatments can correct many dental problems quickly and painlessly. Today, many patients are eligible for cutting-edge treatments like Invisalign®. These clear, removable trays offer a discreet option for patients who prefer to avoid braces.

How can I find out if I need orthodontics?

During your dental exam at Illinois Dental Center of Belmont, your dentist checks your bite and the alignment of your teeth. They also take detailed X-rays to get a closer look at the bones in your jaw. If you might benefit from orthodontics, your dentist reviews your treatment options.

Often, orthodontics is an optional cosmetic treatment. But if you have serious dental issues, you may need orthodontics to preserve your oral health. Your dentist at Illinois Dental Center of Belmont can help you select a treatment that will protect your teeth from future damage.

What orthodontic treatments are available?

The dental team at Illinois Dental Center of Belmont is highly experienced with a variety of orthodontic treatments, including braces and Invisalign. They can create orthodontic treatments that open up your bite, relieve tooth crowding, and fix misaligned jaws. Because each patient is unique, the right orthodontic treatment options will vary, so your dentist personalizes your orthodontic solutions to what best fits your individual needs.

What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

Even minor orthodontic treatments can make a big difference. Orthodontic care often makes it easier to brush, floss, and take care of your teeth. You may also find it much easier to bite, chew, or talk.

If you tend to grind or clench your teeth, fixing your bite can relieve pressure on your teeth. Orthodontics can prevent damaged, chipped, or worn-down teeth. Best of all, orthodontic treatments can produce a bright smile that you'll be proud to show off.
