Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

Do you need orthodontic treatment? Orthodontic treatments are designed to correct problems with teeth or jaw placement. Children, teenagers, and adults are candidates for orthodontic treatments. Dr. Jeff DiMariano and Dr. Shaina DiMariano are some of the finest dentists in Sacramento, CA. They offer orthodontic treatment for a healthy, beautiful smile. Here are five reasons to consider orthodontic treatment. 

1. Correct Dental Problems

Orthodontic treatment is a way of moving or straightening teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment effectively corrects a variety of dental issues, including: overcrowded teeth, protruding teeth, crooked teeth, cross bite, gapped teeth, and an underbite. 

2. Beautify Your Smile

Orthodontic treatment can help you achieve your dream smile. Improving your smile is one of the most valuable investments you can make to improve your overall appearance. An attractive smile leaves a good first impression — and a good first impression can mean success on a first date, in a job interview, and in other areas of your life. 

3. Prevent Dental Injuries

People with protruding teeth are at higher risk for dental injury and may benefit from orthodontic treatment. Protruding teeth are more likely to crack or chip in the event of an accident. People who are involved in high-contact activities such as sports are especially at high risk. There are multiple treatments that can correct protruding teeth. 

4. Improve Oral Function

Orthodontic treatment can improve oral function. Certain bite problems can result in difficulty chewing. A corrected bite will make it easier for you to bite and chew food. Your teeth also play an important role in speech. If you have crooked teeth, it can make a noticeable difference in your pronunciation. Straightening your smile will help make you a clearer speaker.

5. Improve Oral Health

Orthodontic treatment can improve your oral health. Straight teeth aren't just more attractive – they’re also easier to keep clean. Crowded and crooked teeth make cleaning the mouth difficult, and improper cleaning can lead to dental cavities, periodontal disease, and tooth loss. Consult with a dentist in Sacramento, CA to find out if orthodontic treatment is right for you.

Orthodontic treatment will do you and your smile a world of good. Don't wait another minute- call our dental office at 916-929-3898 now to schedule a consultation in Sacramento, CA. Remember, a better life starts with a better-looking smile.
