Not everyone is born with a perfect smile. While each person smile is unique, sometimes little imperfections and other issues can mean more than simply a cosmetic appearance that may not appeal to you. While some people are fine with the way their teeth look, others may not be and this is perfectly normal. That is where orthodontic treatment comes in. Primarily orthodontic treatment such as the use of braves is used to help improve bites and the formation of teeth for medical reasons, but devices like braces can have a positive cosmetic affect as well. Here at the offices of our orthodontist in Jackson Heights Rekha Gehani, DDS your teen can get the orthodontic treatment and care that they need in order to improve their dental health as well as their self-esteem.
When a bite does not meet properly, strain is out on the jawbone and teeth. This can cause significant dental health issues over time and can be generally unhealthy. Crooked teeth may seem like a purely cosmetic issue, but this is not always the case. People with severely or even moderately crooked teeth may not be able to properly clean away plaque and bacteria, even if they brush, floss and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash regularly. This can cause dental health concerns because the risk of tooth decay and gum disease is significantly higher. Luckily both of these issues can be treated with the use of orthodontic treatment. Usually, teens are referred to an orthodontist by a family dentist that has monitored their overall dental health and development over the years. Sometimes serious bite problems can be predicted and taken car of early on. Here with our orthodontist in Jackson Heights Rekha Gehani, DDS your teen can get the comprehensive care that they need in order to correct these issues.
