Benefits of Orthodontic Care

Orthodontic treatment offers practical advantages for your oral health; straight teeth aren’t just a cosmetic concern. First, they make speaking and eating easier and more clear. By being able to eat more easily, this may also help with any digestion problems. Straight teeth are easier to clean properly, with fewer areas for debris and bacteria to hide or become trapped, which means you’ll have fewer problems with plaque buildup, cavities, and gum disease. This in turn leads to fewer dental issues in future. Well-aligned teeth also reduce the risk of premature wear and tear that the unequal forces from uneven teeth or a misaligned bite can cause. It can even help reduce jaw pain and lower the risk of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Orthodontics Toronto: Correcting a Variety of Alignment, Spacing, and Bite Concerns

Orthodontic treatment offers a comprehensive approach to resolving a range of misalignments and bite issues, all of which can significantly impact your oral health.

Overcrowding, when there isn’t enough room in your mouth for your teeth to align properly, can lead to a variety of problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Gaps or spaces between teeth are a concern, too, as they can create potential traps for food particles, increasing the risk of cavities and other dental concerns, and can allow teeth to shift. They can also make it difficult to eat and speak. Orthodontic treatment can correct both forms of spacing issues.

A malocclusion, or poor bite, refers to a misalignment of the upper and lower teeth when the mouth is closed fully. This is another concern that leads to oral health issues, discomfort, and affects eating and speaking. There are different types of malocclusion that orthodontics are able to address.

Overbites occur when the upper teeth significantly overlap the lower teeth. This misalignment can lead to dental and jaw problems.

An underbite occurs when the lower teeth extend further forward than the upper teeth.

Crossbites involve some upper teeth sitting inside the lower teeth. This misalignment can result in uneven wear and tear on your teeth and potential jaw issues. 

Open bites occur when the upper and lower front teeth are unable to meet. This can interfere with your ability to chew and speak properly.
