Why Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontics not only improves the appearance of your teeth, but can also improve your dental health in general, and these are both big goals of ours at NW Group Calgary Orthodontics.
Teeth that are crowded or crooked are harder to keep clean, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. An imbalanced bite can also cause excessive tooth wear and painful problems with your jaw and jaw joint (TMJ). By straightening your teeth and correcting your bite, the potential for these problems can be minimized.
Early Detection and Treatment
If you suspect that an issue with your teeth or bite could be fixed with orthodontics, it’s a great idea to book a consultation appointment.
Identifying and/or treating orthodontic problems at an early stage in development may lessen the amount of treatment needed, and the time it takes. With the help of imaging technology and a solid understanding of growth and development, we can predictably offer appropriate orthodontic treatment, if indicated, at a younger age while the body is still growing. Growth will then work with the treatment to bring about a better smile and healthier bite sooner!
While it’s true that not all people are candidates for early treatment, early detection can help with planning any future treatment that may be needed. Read more about Early Detection and Interceptive Treatment.
