Why Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?
Most patients choose orthodontic treatment to achieve a beautiful, perfectly aligned smile. This not only enhances appearance, but also improves self-confidence, which is critical in a young adult’s development. However, orthodontics offers so much more. If you have a malocclusion or an improper bite, your teeth are vulnerable to excess pressure and wear, which can break down the enamel eventually leading to decay.
Through orthodontic treatment, a patient can achieve the “ideal bite” or the optimal alignment between the top teeth and the bottom teeth. The alignment or relationship between the top and bottom jaw becomes an essential part of your oral health. If your teeth don’t meet correctly during chewing they can chip or wear, causing unnecessary dental complications.
