At Dream Smiles Orthodontics we know that our treatments seem boring, but they are actually very important…
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that is utilised to correct overcrowded teeth, excessively spaced teeth and also a misaligned jaw – which results in overbites and underbites. It is important to resolve these dental issues permanently as if ignored can create substantial issues later in life. At Dream Smiles Orthodontics, we understand why orthodontic treatment is so important, and endeavour to help you understand why, too!
Overcrowding in an issue as it can lead to crooked teeth. This occurs because new teeth that still need to erupt cannot emerge properly, and instead they have to force their way into a confined space. This exerts pressure on the surrounding teeth and forces them to shift, intersecting with other teeth which causes them to become crooked. Each case of overcrowding is different, and with our treatments at Dream Smiles Orthodontics in Brisbane, we are able to effectively treat overcrowding before it becomes an issue.
An overcrowded smile may require early intervention, as our expert orthodontists prefer to resolve this dental problem as quickly as possible.
Poor oral health that is caused by overcrowded or crooked teeth can lead to a higher risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease. It is important if periodontal (gum) disease is present, for it to be treated as soon as possible, as if neglected it can become severe periodontitis and lead to jaw bone deterioration and tooth loss.
Overbites and underbites…
Poorly aligned teeth can often result in malocclusion, which is a misalignment of the jaw. This creates overbites or underbites, and can wear the teeth down due to their poor alignment. This erosion can lead to tooth decay, which can require extensive dental treatments in the long run. Malocclusion also can lead to TMJ dysfunction, where the jaw joints become irritated and cause chronic headaches, dizziness and ear pain.
Tooth grinding, also known as bruxism, can also be cause by misaligned teeth. Those who suffer from bruxism can suffer from sore jaw muscles, as well as erosion of the tooth enamel and structure, compromising the health of your smile. Tooth grinding can eventually lead to tooth decay, which can form tooth cavities and in severe cases, form periodontal disease.
