Orthodontics

Orange Dental Team | Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Many people wonder about the difference between dentistry and orthodontics. Dental treatment focuses on the health of your teeth, while orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that concentrates on how your teeth fit together.

Reasons to go to an Orthodontist

Orthodontic treatment can be necessary to repair:

  • Improper bites
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Teeth crowding
  • Overbites and underbites
  • Crooked teeth
  • Facial reconstruction

The most common way Orange Dental treats orthodontic problems is by applying braces to your teeth.

What Do Braces Do?

Braces work by forcing your teeth into their proper alignment, on an average rate of one millimeter per month. With all the advances in the field of orthodontics, your options are many - including:

  • Traditional archwire and brackets
  • Archwire and elastics
  • Removable retainers
  • Expanders
  • Headgear
  • ˇFacemask
  • ˇInvisalign trays

 Come in to Orange Dental today for a consultation - and we'll let you know which orthodontic treatment is best for you.
