What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialized field within dentistry that involves straightening crooked teeth and misaligned jaws to correct your bite and create a beautiful smile. Straightening teeth and correcting an improper bite alleviate future dental issues. Aesthetically, orthodontics improves your smile and results in a positive self-image.

One of the most qualified specialists in orthodontics and periodontics, Dr. Baloul is well-trained in treating minor corrections as well as the most complex issues.

What Does Orthodontics Correct?

The most common purposes for orthodontics are straightening crooked teeth and correcting alignment. However, orthodontics prevents other problems arising from the main issues. Crooked or misaligned teeth as well as gaps between teeth may lead to tooth decay, as it is easy for food particles and bacteria to be trapped. Orthodontics may even improve speech and chewing.

Am I a Good Candidate for Orthodontics?

If you experience any discomfort from crooked teeth, misaligned jaws, or you’re simply self-conscious about your smile, you may be a good candidate for orthodontics. Your dentist typically recommends an orthodontics consultation if it is warranted or if you want to straighten your teeth.
