Warning Signs That It’s Time to See an Orthodontist
You’ve been brushing and flossing. You visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. But despite taking these steps, you or your child has been experiencing signs that something just isn’t right with the way your teeth or your bite feels.
The orthodontists at Orthodontics, Inc. are specialists in the feel, function and appearance of your teeth, as well as the alignment of the bite and jaw. We perform a thorough examination to determine if there are underlying issues causing myriad problems that can affect people of all ages.
Here are some of the warning signs that it is time to schedule a consultation with our orthodontists:
Late or early loss of baby teeth
Thumb or finger sucking
Teeth that are crowded, protruding, misplaced, or blocked
Problems chewing, biting, or speaking
A shifting, protruding, or recessed jaw
Frequent biting into the cheek or roof of the mouth
Unable to easily close lips
Teeth that meet abnormally or don’t meet at all
Our orthodontists believe that oral health is a key indicator of a person’s overall wellbeing. Our treatment is about much more than your cosmetic appearance. We ensure that your teeth and jaw are functioning optimally, which leads to a more comfortable bite when you are eating and speaking. People with misaligned teeth have a more difficult time keeping them clean, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Misalignment can also cause your tooth enamel to wear unevenly, which can eventually trigger prolonged, costly dental work.
The orthodontic specialists at Orthodontics, Inc. partner with our patients to create a treatment plan that is customized to their personal needs. Together we can produce results that will have a profound impact on the way your teeth look, feel and perform. Don’t hesitate to contact our office today to arrange an appointment.
