What Is Orthodontic Treatment?

If you go to the dentist’s office in Middletown and find out that you may benefit from braces, you will need to prepare to undergo orthodontic treatment. Unlike cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics is concerned with helping you have straighter teeth to improve your oral health. Check out this video if you would like to learn more about orthodontics.

Your orthodontist is in charge of making sure that your teeth, jaw, and facial muscles are in proper balance. This typically starts with a mouth exam, which is designed to allow dentists and orthodontists to determine where your teeth should ideally lie. In the past, orthodontic devices like braces, wires, elastics, and headgear were often used to help children and teenagers whose teeth were growing in unevenly. Modern orthodontics, on the other hand, is a good fit for all ages. It is no longer uncommon to see an adult with braces, although there are some modern orthodontic treatment options—such as clear braces—that you can barely see at all.
