It will surprise many people that orthodontics is not simply about creating a straighter, more attractive smile. The benefits of orthodontic treatment go beyond that.
Crowded and crooked teeth can be difficult to keep clean, which increases the chances of developing gum disease and the dental problems that go with it. An overbite or underbite can lead to issues with chewing and speech.
In children, correcting these common problems early in life can reduce many dental issues in the future. However, there are clearly oral health benefits for children, teens and adults alike.
The increase in modern orthodontic treatments can offer patients more choice depending on their needs and their lifestyles. Options like the Inman Aligner can provide an effective solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth where the teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-18 weeks and because the Inman Aligner is removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.
