Miami Lakes Orthodontics - Dental Braces
Orthodontics is the formal name of the dental specialty concerned with the diagnosis, prevention, guidance and correction of bad bites. The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to correct your bite (straighten teeth so they properly meet opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A proper bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. If your teeth are crowded, spaced too far apart, meet in an abnormal way, or do not meet at all, correction is recommended. Braces and aligners are the most common appliances used to correct aligning.
In the past, orthodontic treatment was associated with children and teens, but today many adults seek orthodontic treatment to correct long-standing problems.
You are never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment. No matter your age, proper alignment of teeth contributes to good health and a beautiful smile.
Leaving misaligned teeth untreated may lead to other dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, abnormal wear of tooth enamel, difficulty in chewing.
