Is Orthodontic Treatment Important?

orthodontic treatment is importantAt Kulkarni & Fitz Orthodontics in Springboro, OH, our goal is quite simply to ensure that you enjoy a healthy, attractive smile. If you have crowding, gapping, crooked teeth, an underbite or overbite, teeth that do not meet properly, or crooked teeth, your smile is not as healthy as it could be, and also not as attractive. We offer orthodontic treatments such as braces, aligners and retainers that can correct a multitude of problems.

So yes, orthodontic treatment, if you need it, is important. If your teeth are straight and properly spaced, you will look better. And with serious bite issues, you are probably experiencing functional problems that are causing you discomfort. We can help.

The Advantages of Orthodontic Treatment

You have no doubt had it communicated to you from a very early age that you need to take care of your teeth. Your parents (and your dentist as well) have impressed upon you the need for checkups and professional cleanings every six months, and stressed the importance of brushing and flossing in order to prevent gingivitis and tooth decay.

As to brushing and flossing, these are the cornerstones of your oral health care, but they can be difficult to perform effectively if your teeth are not straight. Further, if you do have orthodontic treatment, you are not only less likely to experience tooth decay and gum disease, you are also less likely to develop worn tooth enamel.

Orthodontic treatment can also work to correct difficulty speaking, and can even improve your overall health by helping you to improve your nutrition. You have probably observed that the foods that are best for you are not always the ones that are easiest to eat. Crunchy fruits and vegetables, lean meat and poultry, and chewy foods like dried fruit or healthy grains can all be more difficult to consume if your teeth are not properly aligned. Then you end up resorting to softer canned foods that are not as good for you.
