Orthodontics Chilliwack

In case you're looking to reposition your jaw, as well as rectify and align crooked teeth, then orthodontics may be a good option to take into consideration. Crooked and misaligned teeth are prone to decay and periodontal disorders mainly because they're significantly more difficult to clean. In addition, poorly aligned teeth can place added tension on the biting muscles which may stimulate severe headaches, back, neck, shoulder pain, or TMJ disorders. Dental orthodontics allows you to properly arrange teeth to help boost the look of your teeth.

Oral health problems like overbites occur when the upper teeth protrude past the lower teeth; therefore, the individual needs immediate orthodontic treatment. An underbite is the opposite of an overbite, where the lower arch teeth extend beyond the upper arch teeth. A crossbite occurs the top and bottom teeth do not correctly come together and a wide open bite comes about when places between the biting surfaces on the side or front of teeth, when the rear molars bite together. Other troubles that may require orthodontic treatment include spacing, crowding together and a misplaced midline. Spacing comprises holes or breaks between the teeth that might have been a direct result losing teeth or that your teeth are too small to fill up the mouth. Crowding of the teeth occurs whenever there's not adequate space on the dental ridge for all of your teeth. Finally, a misplaced midline occurs when the top and bottom arch teeth do not line up naturally in the front.

Orthodontic procedures may help a patient create and maintain a healthier mouth, while improving the overall appearance and may increase the natural life of the teeth.
