Orthodontist Provides Orthodontics Braces and Treats Periodontal Disease If you are one of millions of people that have misaligned or crooked teeth, you may be seeking and orthodontist that can provide you with braces. Braces can straighten your teeth to a more healthy, natural, and proper alignment. You will be impressed with the look and feel of your teeth after your teethâ€™s alignment is properly corrected. Orthodontics braces can help you have teeth that are straight, appropriately form the shape of your mouth, and retain your correct facial shape. Amazingly, your teeth can be straight in very little time. Your dentist can tell you more about the time it will take to have your teeth straightened based on the condition of your teeth. Traditionally, orthodontic braces used to be metal and were bound to the teeth. These metal appliances could be very painful and were unsightly, especially for adults. Many adults felt uncomfortable getting braces on their own crooked teeth because they did not want the look that traditional braces offered. Today, any reputable orthodontist will offer clear braces to straighten crooked teeth. These braces are hardly noticeable and can give you the confidence you need to get through work, professional photos, and every day instances in which you smile or talk. You may even find that you are able to eat more easily and can speak more clearly. Before you attempt to use braces for treatment, your dentist should check you for periodontal disease. This disease stems from untreated gingivitis. The gums will pull away from the teeth and form infections that will break down the ability of the gums to hold the teeth. It is extremely important that your dentist treat you for periodontal disease if you have it. Your body has been fighting infection and could cause more health problems if you do not have the disease treated. If you are not treated, it is likely that you will lose your teeth that have become loose from the disease. Your dentist can use scaling and root-planning methods to treat periodontal disease. In some cases, lasers may be used for the deep-cleaning procedure. Once the disease has been treated, it is important for you to continue checkups and cleanings to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Before you begin planning for orthodontics braces, it is important to have your gums and teeth checked for other problems and diseases. They should be treated first before you have braces put into place to straighten your teeth. We can help you have the smile youâ€™ve always wanted with our professional and modern dental services.
