Orthodontics Costa Mesa

orthodontics costa mesaWhen people hear the word “orthodontist” they automatically think braces. Everyone goes to an orthodontist or a general dentist who offers orthodontic treatment for braces. It is one of the most common procedures that they perform.  Even adults undergo treatment using braces to straighten their teeth.

Orthodontists not only provide treatment to straighten a person’s teeth and improve their appearance.  They can also correct any abnormalities with the face and jaws.  There are orthodontic techniques used to correct an overbite, crossbite and underbite. Sometimes a person’s jaw is too narrow, short or small.  There are techniques designed to make a persons face appear more aligned and centered.

Orthodontic treatment can also correct problems that develop due to the misalignment of the teeth and jaws. Problems that develop due to how a person’s teeth come together when their mouth is closed, such as breaking teeth or restorations because of too much force being placed on them, can be corrected through orthodontic treatment.

Problems with speech and chewing can also be corrected through orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment can be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment to relieve TMJ symptoms or correct TMJ disorders that cause discomfort.
