Many people associate orthodontics with getting traditional braces. Orthodontics involves much more than that. In fact traditional braces may not be the best option for everyone. Orthodontics is a special branch of dentistry that specializes in preventing and correcting misaligned teeth, such as malocclusions (improper bite). However orthodontics also involves treating and controlling many aspects of facial growth (dental facial orthodontics) as well as the shape and the development of the jaw. Our North Corona orthodontists use many different devices to help patients with various issues such as: closing wide gaps between teeth, straightening crooked teeth, ensuring that the tips of the teeth are aligned, treating and improper bit (malocclusion) and more.
Orthodontic problems range from mind to severe. In certain circumstances, when a patient has an orthodontic problem it can greatly impact the quality of his or her quality of life. For example, it can interfere with the patient’s ability to speak or eat properly. Orthodontics also involves cosmetic dentistry when the patient’s goal is to improve his or her appearance. Since each patient has different needs, goal oriented orthodontics is essential.
