Align Your Smile at Northside Orthodontics
What We Offer
Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth may hide them or not smile. Orthodontic treatment can enhance your self-esteem, confidence and facial appearance as well as change the way you see yourself. In this way, orthodontics can benefit you both professionally and socially.
You may also be surprised to learn that straight teeth are less prone to decay, gum disease and injury. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and therefore collect less plaque, reducing your risk of decay and periodontal (gum) disease.
Straight teeth enable you to effectively bite, chew and speak correctly. Properly aligned teeth and jaws can help prevent dental and jaw joint problems occurring in the future as well as giving you a beautiful smile and contributing to healthy teeth and gums in the present.
Children and adults alike can benefit from orthodontics. Untreated orthodontic problems can worsen over time. They may lead to tooth decay, gum disease, destruction of the bone that holds teeth in place and chewing and digestive difficulties. Orthodontic problems can cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue, the jaw joints and the bone that supports the teeth.
Treating orthodontics problems early may be less costly than the restorative dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
