Glennville Orthodontics Treatment
Some people are blessed with teeth that are naturally healthy and straight. However, the majority of us have some imperfections in our smile. In some cases, this just add character, while in other cases they truly damage the look and health of the teeth. For those of us who need a little help in the smile department, orthodontics is here to help. This form of dentistry focuses on correcting the alignment of the teeth and jaws so the bite is healthier and looks better.
The flaws we target with our Glennville orthodontic services are any that are visible or that can cause pain, gum disease, or tooth decay, as well as those that prevent the jaws from functioning as they should. Among the problems we treat with orthodontics are:
- Open bite
- Protruding teeth
- Teeth that erupted in the wrong place
- Spacing between teeth
- Jaw misalignment
It is easy to feel like you are being vain by considering orthodontic treatment, but the truth is that teeth and jaws that are not aligned properly can have significant health consequences. When you opt for our Glennville orthodontic treatment, you are improving the looks of your smile. But you are also reducing the likelihood of developing tooth decay, gum disease, jaw pain, uneven wearing of the teeth, and even tooth loss. You are not just improving your looks; you are improving your health.
How long orthodontic treatment will last depends on the severity of the issue being treated. Some patients are done in as little as six months while others may be in treatment for a few years. Our Glennville orthodontists can tell you what to expected after your initial appointment.
