Orthodontics is a special field in dentistry that helps realign teeth for a beautiful, straighter smile. Traditional braces used to be the only solution to straightening teeth, but with the advent of clear aligners, patients now have a choice.

There are a variety of services in the field of orthodontics, but they all have the same goal: to create a beautiful smile. There could be several reasons for needing orthodontic treatment. Only a trained orthodontist can make that call, so contacting Menta Dentistry is a good idea. In most cases, our dentists may recommend braces, especially if you have malocclusion, or a bad bite. Some examples of conditions that require orthodontics include:

  • TMJ or misaligned jaw
  • Crowded teeth
  • Extra or missing teeth
  • Crooked teeth, apparent when baby teeth have all come in

If these issues are not resolved, orthodontic problems can worsen over time and lead to more problems. Some of these issues can include speech difficulties, worn teeth, and maybe even tooth loss.

Once our patients finish with their orthodontic treatment at Menta Dentistry, they often feel more confident about their smile. The lasting benefits are a more confident appearance, greater health of teeth and gums, improved chewing capabilities, and corrected speech patterns.
