21st Century Orthodontic Treatment
The new millennium has arrived, and with it some pretty amazing technological advancements! Never before have we, as a society, had so many incredible opportunities before us...What an exciting time to explore orthodontic treatment!
Crooked, crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. Tooth decay, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss can result. Improper jaw alignment can contribute to the wearing of tooth surfaces (resulting in expensive restorations, caps, bridges, crowns, etc.), inefficient chewing (function is limited), and TMJ symptoms (popping, pain, locking of the jaw joint). Chronic headaches and face or neck pain can become a way of life.
While a beautiful smile full of confidence may be the most obvious benefit of treatment for many people, there is more to be gained than meets the eye!
