Orthodontic Treatment in Foothill Ranch

Orthodontic treatments address problems with the teeth, jaws, and face alignment. When teeth and jaws are not in the proper alignment or position, there are strategies used by your orthodontist to move them into place. This process is done within the adolescent stage but may be done even in adulthood. It is often done to ensure long term oral health and functionality of the teeth as well as straighten a smile!

Early intervention is crucial for orthodontic dental problems. If orthodontic issues are not resolved, tooth decay and tooth loss may occur. There may also be developmental problems that impact the jaw and other issues. It is also a common occurrence for normal speech development to be impacted by poor tooth and jaw placement.

Causes of Crooked Teeth:

  • Genetics- crowding, too much space, protruding teeth, extra teeth, and jaw growth problems are often inherited.
  • Misalignment Development- Some actions or oral development can cause crooked teeth. Thumb sucking, mouth breathing, swallowing, inadequate dental hygiene, and nutritional or medical issues can cause complications and crooked teeth.

Why do I Need Straight Teeth?

Orthodontic treatment is done because teeth that are crowded or crooked are often more difficult to keep clean, when brushing or flossing. This increases the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. A poor bite can also lead to abnormal wear of the natural tooth over time as well as difficulties speaking or eating. If left untreated, crooked teeth can cause excessive stress on jawbone and gum tissue as well as the jaw joint.
