The start of a new year is a great time to address old concerns and make exciting changes to your life. Many people have some issues with malocclusion, meaning they are affected by problems with the way that their teeth are aligned. Through orthodontic treatment, you can resolve these problems and enjoy exciting smile improvements! Our Columbia, TN dentist's office is prepared to help you by beginning work with braces that can provide cosmetic as well as oral health benefits. For those who qualify, we can even help produce impressive results in less time with the Six Month Smiles treatment approach!
Braces Can Do More Than Just Improve Your Smile
Because orthodontic work can do so much for the way a person looks, it can be easy to think of it as another form of cosmetic dentistry. While you can feel better about your smile after using braces to straighten teeth, the work of correcting your smile can also provide meaningful oral health benefits. A better-aligned bite that results from your correction can ease tension on your jaw joints and muscles, lowering your risk for alignment issues that lead to TMJ disorder. An improved bite also helps you avoid excess wear and tear on certain teeth.
Starting Treatment To Resolve Problems With Malocclusion
Orthodontic treatment with braces will help you correct trouble with spacing, problems with overlaps between teeth, and other issues stemming from poor alignment. The bracket-and-wire system gradually moves teeth, easing you into your improved smile so that teeth stay in place at the end of your procedure. Throughout your correction, your dentist will be able to monitor your progress and help move you closer to your ideal smile!
Qualifying For Six Month Smiles
For those patients who qualify, we can recommend a different approach to orthodontic treatment known as Six Month Smiles! With this approach, we focus on straightening your front teeth in order to produce exciting cosmetic changes. Our plans for your treatment can rely on bracket-and-wire braces, or it can use clear aligners to move your teeth. At the end of your shortened adjustment, you can be thrilled to see how fixing issues with malocclusion lead to a more attractive and more symmetrical smile.
