What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting dental and facial irregularities. It involves the use of various orthodontic appliances to align teeth, correct bite issues, and achieve an optimal and functional bite.

When is Orthodontic Treatment Needed?

Orthodontic treatment may be recommended for the following conditions:

1. Malocclusions: Malocclusions, also known as “bad bites,” refer to misalignments of the teeth and jaw, such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites.

2. Crowded or Spaced Teeth: Teeth that are too crowded or widely spaced can be straightened and aligned for improved aesthetics and easier oral hygiene.

3. Improper Tooth Eruption: Orthodontic intervention can guide erupting permanent teeth into their proper positions, preventing future dental issues.

4. Facial Imbalance: In some cases, orthodontic treatment can help address facial imbalances caused by jaw discrepancies.

The Orthodontic Treatment Process:

Our orthodontic team ensures a comprehensive and personalized treatment process:

1. Initial Consultation: During your first visit, we conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays and digital scans, to assess your orthodontic needs.

2. Custom Treatment Plan: Based on your unique requirements and smile goals, we create a customized treatment plan tailored to achieve optimal results.

3. Orthodontic Appliances: We offer a range of orthodontic appliances, including traditional braces, clear aligners (such as Invisalign®), and other specialized appliances, depending on your specific case.

4. Treatment Progress: Regular check-up appointments allow us to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your orthodontic appliances.

5. Retainers: After completing the active phase of orthodontic treatment, we provide you with retainers to maintain the newly achieved alignment and prevent teeth from shifting.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment:

  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Orthodontic treatment improves the alignment of your teeth, enhancing the overall aesthetics of your smile.
  • Improved Oral Health: Straight teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of dental issues such as cavities and gum disease.
  • Optimal Function: Correcting bite issues and aligning the jaw enhances chewing efficiency and speech clarity.
  • Boosted Confidence: A beautiful and aligned smile can boost your self-confidence and leave a lasting positive impression.

“Dublin Corners Dental came highly recommended from a colleague and they lived up to the glowing recommendation. The entire staff was so nice and welcoming, and that service has remained the same over the years. Any time I go they are so nice. I needed some dental work done but they didn’t push any extras and were very honest about what needed to be done and when. Rachel is the hygienist I typically see and I love her! She’s very thorough and takes the time to answer all my questions and go over any concerns.”
