Many dental patients in and around Encinitas hold the belief that orthodontists only change the look of your teeth. Consequently, they think that the only reason to find an orthodontist is if you are interested in cosmetic dentistry.
The fact is that your ability to clean your teeth is enhanced when your teeth are straight and uncrowded.
When uneven teeth begin to crowd together, it becomes difficult to make important daily cleanings effective. And, when your teeth aren’t cleaned properly, problems with plaque build-up, cavities, and gum disease commonly ensue.
If you are curious if your teeth are crowding or if your bite is not aligned, then you need to visit your dentist. Your dentist can evaluate whether or not you need to see an orthodontist, and then recommend one near you.
Also, if you feel that the appearance of your teeth is an issue, ask your dentist about a smile makeover. There are numerous unprecedented cosmetic dentistry procedures carried out daily. These include teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, crowns, and more!
