Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on straightening teeth and repositioning your jaw to achieve a more attractive, healthier looking smile. Dr. Park at Orange Dream Dental is an orthodontist, a specialist who can assess the alignment of your teeth and jaw and recommend the best course of orthodontic treatment.

How do I know if I need orthodontics?

At Orange Dream Dental, Dr. Park and his staff evaluate your teeth to see if orthodontic treatment may be right for you. They perform a full medical and dental health exam, take special X-rays, including computed tomography scans, and look for problems, such as:

 

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Spacing (Gaps in teeth)
  • Crowding (Too many teeth in one place)

 

After assessing your dental health, Dr. Park recommends a personalized orthodontic treatment plan for you.

How does orthodontic treatment work?

When it comes to figuring out what type of orthodontic treatment you’ll undergo, Dr. Park walks you through your options and explains the specifics.

 

In most cases, your options will come down to traditional metal braces or removable aligners with the Invisalign® system.

 

Traditional braces involve the use of metal brackets and wires fixed to your teeth. They come in different colors or clear braces. Invisalign, on the other hand, is a system that uses removable, clear aligners that you wear 20-22 hours a day. You can take them out to eat and brush your teeth.

 

Both orthodontic treatments straighten your teeth by gradually shifting them into optimal position over time. As with any treatment option offered at Orange Dream Dental, Dr. Park can help you decide which one is right for you.

How will I benefit from orthodontics?

With orthodontic treatment, your smile will look its best. A whiter, straighter smile can boost your self-confidence and change your life. You’ll never shy away from a mirror again.

 

Another important benefit of orthodontic treatment is the better aligned your teeth are, the healthier they will be, too. Crooked teeth or teeth that don’t fit together properly are harder to keep clean and are more susceptible to problems, such as decay or periodontal disease. Orthodontic treatment can improve your oral health for the rest of your life.
