Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry dedicated to the proper alignment of your teeth and bite. With orthodontics, Dr. DiMariano can treat a variety of conditions, like:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

By straightening your teeth and aligning your bite, Dr. DiMariano can give you a smile that’s significantly healthier and better looking.

Why should I straighten my smile?

Straightening your smile has several benefits that extend far beyond cosmetic improvements. For example, crooked or crowded teeth are more difficult to keep clean, since there are more nooks and crannies between them that can harbor food particles, debris, and harmful bacteria. 

When debris and bacteria accumulate, it leads to tooth decay and gum disease. By straightening your smile, you make it easier to keep your teeth clean and decrease your susceptibility to oral health complications.

Crooked teeth and an improperly aligned jaw can unevenly distribute the force in your bite. Those areas in your smile that receive more pressure tend to wear down more quickly, leading to uneven and excessive wear-and-tear in your teeth.

With orthodontics, Dr. DiMariano can prevent these problems from happening by ensuring that your biting force is more evenly distributed.

When is the best time to straighten my smile?

It’s never too late to straighten your smile, and with modern treatments like Invisalign®, it’s becoming more common for older patients to undergo orthodontic treatments.

There is an advantage, however, to getting treatment when you’re an adolescent or younger. Orthodontic concerns typically don’t improve over time. In fact, they can even get worse as your teeth become more firmly rooted in an improper alignment.

The earlier you straighten your smile, the easier it is for Dr. DiMariano to harness the natural development of your teeth and jaws. Instead of having to move a tooth that’s already settled into a position, he can work with its natural growth to more gently guide it into proper placement, making the orthodontic process easier and less costly.
