Studies have shown that the vast majority of Americans believe a winning smile is an important social asset. So how do you feel about your smile? If you have nagging doubts that an improper bit (in dental terms, a “malocclusion” such as an under or overbite) is holding your smile back, maybe it’s time to consult a Portage orthodontist.
Lowell orthodontists, Merrillville orthodontists and Munster orthodontists all specialize in the treatment of malocclusions. In fact, orthodontics was the very first specialty field officially recognized within the world of dentistry. Orthodontics research has been ongoing for many years now, resulting in new dental technologies, used by Portage orthodontists and others, that go well beyond the limits of braces.
Portage orthodontists, St. John orthodontists and Valparaiso orthodontists, along with many others, are gradually dispelling the myth that orthodontics is just for children. Although children and young people are the ones most often seen wearing braces, the truth is that about thirty percent of orthodontic patients in the U.S.A. are actually adults.
What about some of the great new technologies that a Portage orthodontist can use to help you improve your smile? New self ligating braces are more comfortable and flexible than older models, plus some low profile types of jaw correcting insert are so translucent as to be nearly invisible, plus can be removed with ease, allowing the user to eat foods that would normally be difficult or impossible to consume with conventional braces in.
Plus, seeking treatment from a skilled Portage orthodontist can help stave off many unpleasant conditions associated with jaw malformation, including migraine headaches, dizziness, nausea and septum deviation. There are so many reasons for people with malocclusion problems to seek treatment from a Portage orthodontist or other experienced orthodontist… If any of these problems sound familiar to you, I hope you won’t hesitate to contact a Portage orthodontist right away!
