Braces for Adults and Children
There’s more to braces than just straightening your smile. Although our younger patients often get orthodontic therapy to correct the alignment of their teeth – adults also make ideal patients.
At Beautiful Dentistry, Dr. Amin-Patel offers comprehensive orthodontics to patients of all ages, including options like:
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
Correcting the alignment of the teeth can benefit your oral health in many different ways. Crowded, gapped, or crooked teeth can lead to complications that shorten the life of healthy teeth and gums.
Dr. Amin-Patel often uses orthodontic therapy to address:
Premature Tooth Wear
Teeth are designed to bite in proper alignment with those on the opposite arch. When they don’t, durable tooth enamel can quickly wear away. Not only does this cause flat, chipped, or worn teeth, but it also contributes to broken dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or veneers.
TMJ Disorders and Headaches
If your teeth do not fit together as they should, it can strain the jaw joint (TMJ,) causing pain and discomfort. Correcting the relationship between your upper and lower teeth can improve symptoms of migraines and TMJ disorder. Let Dr. Amin-Patel know if you are experiencing symptoms such as jaw popping, clicking, or locking of the joint.
Straighter teeth are easier to clean, allowing the health of your gums to improve and bone to be regenerated. Otherwise, gapped or crooked teeth often lead to bony defects and periodontal disease. Managing the alignment of your smile is part of a comprehensive way to address periodontal treatment.
Aesthetics of Your Smile
Closing a gap between your teeth or helping them to appear straighter can provide a huge boost in self-esteem. Combine braces with teeth whitening for a healthy, proactive way to rejuvenate your smile’s appearance.
