Orthodontic Treatment

Maple Glen, PA Dentist

Orthodontic treatment is used with adolescent and adult patients to straighten teeth and correct misalignment. Orthodontics may also assist with crowding of teeth in the upper or lower arch of teeth and may also close gaps in the teeth. Crooked or misaligned teeth can cause difficulty with speech, chewing, and effective brushing. Misalignment can also contribute to temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), causing stiffness and pain in the jaw joint.

When teeth are properly aligned, they are easier to keep your teeth clean, making them less prone to decay and gum disease. Proper alignment can ease or prevent symptoms of TMD and correct issues with speech and chewing. By completing orthodontic treatment, you can improve both the look and health of your smile.
