Orthodontics is a specialist area of dentistry that diagnoses, prevents and treats jaw and tooth misalignments
What is orthodontics?
The sole purpose of orthodontics is to provide people with straighter, healthier smiles. To do this, orthodontic treatment aims at ensuring teeth line up where they should to give patients a more aesthetically pleasing and healthier smile.
At HiTech Orthodontics we are confident that every one of our patients are leaving our clinic with a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.
While many people associate orthodontics with the conventional metal braces that most teenagers have, here at HiTech Ortho we offer a broad range of orthodontic treatment and procedures that makes orthodontic treatment an exciting option for patients of any age.
Benefits of orthodontic treatment
There are many benefits of achieving straighter teeth, which include:
Improved bite function – straight and even teeth chew food easier.
Improved speech – did you know misalignments can impact speech?
Improved hygiene – easier to keep straight teeth clean and fresh.
A bite that lasts longer – straight teeth balance out bite pressure, which reduces wear and tear.
Reduced jaw trouble – bad bites stress the temporomandibular joints (jaw joints), neck and cause headaches.
Improved overall health – because it’s easier to keep straight teeth clean, it helps to remove bad bacteria earlier which reduces your risks of certain health conditions.
Risks associated with orthodontic treatment
All areas of medical and dental treatment, which includes orthodontics, carry potential risks and limitations.
Fortunately, for orthodontics, these complications are infrequent and tend to only be minor consequences.
Nevertheless, it’s important to consider all potential risks and limitations when you’re considering a decision to undergo orthodontic treatment. Therefore, we recommend that you only seek treatment from a registered, and experienced, orthodontic professional.
