Permanent teeth can sometimes emerge from the gums with minor to significant alignment differences between their partners in your bite pattern. Even if you learned to live with an unattractive smile in your teenage years the misaligned teeth could lead to significant complications later on in adult life.
This might also be exacerbated by the loss of one or more teeth, genetic factors, facial trauma or changes in your oral structure associated with aging. If the alignment issues go unaddressed, they could increase your chances of suffering dental fractures and dental attrition problems.
In a situation like this, you should consider scheduling a consultation with a qualified orthodontist like Dr. Park. In many instances, he might recommend installing orthodontic braces in your mouth.
There are different styles and variations available at Arizona Orthodontic Centers. Which one we recommend for you will be based on the severity of the alignment issue as well as your personal preference.
Traditional braces create a functional system of small metal brackets that are secured to the faces of your teeth with a strong dental adhesive. They are incorporated with strong metal wires and other orthodontic components. With routine adjustments, they can gradually bring your teeth into the correct alignment and orientation.
If you are not comfortable with noticeable orthodontic hardware appearing when you smile, Dr. Park can apply a porcelain glaze to the braces components. This material can be shaded to match your natural tooth enamel making the braces less noticeable.
If you live in the Phoenix, Arizona, area and your son or daughter have misaligned teeth, you should call 623-877-8500 to set up a braces consultation at Arizona Orthodontic Centers’s orthodontic clinic.
