Benefits of Orthodontics

The benefits of orthodontic treatment extend far beyond just achieving a beautiful smile. Here are some of the key advantages you can experience:

  • Improved Oral Health: Straight, well-aligned teeth are easier to keep clean, reducing the risk of plaque buildup, cavities, and gum disease.
  • Enhanced Chewing Function: Proper alignment allows for more efficient chewing, leading to better digestion and nutrient absorption.
  • Clearer Speech: Misaligned teeth can sometimes affect speech clarity. Orthodontics can help improve articulation and pronunciation.
  • Reduced Risk of Injury: Protruding or crowded teeth are more susceptible to injury during activities or accidents. Orthodontic treatment can make your smile less vulnerable.
  • Increased Confidence and Self-Esteem: A straight, healthy smile can significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem, impacting your social interactions and overall well-being.
  • Improved Facial Aesthetics: Straight teeth and proper jaw alignment can enhance facial symmetry and balance, for a more attractive appearance.
  • Potential Cost Savings Down the Line: Addressing orthodontic problems early on can prevent more serious dental issues later that could require costly procedures.

Common Orthodontic Issues

Misaligned teeth and jaws can cause various problems that affect your oral health and overall well-being. Here are some of the most common orthodontic issues Dr. Grussmark can address:

  • Missing Lateral Incisors: A missing lateral incisor is a condition where one or both of the teeth next to the front teeth are missing.
  • Spacing: Gaps between teeth can be caused by missing teeth, small teeth, or oversized jaws. Spacing can affect aesthetics and, sometimes, speech.
  • Malocclusions (bad bites): These refer to improper alignment between the upper and lower jaws when biting down. Common malocclusions include:
    • Overbite: Upper teeth protrude significantly over the lower teeth.
    • Overjet: A condition where the upper front teeth protrude past the lower front teeth when the mouth is closed.
    • Underbite: The lower jaw juts out further than the upper jaw.
    • Crossbite: Upper and lower teeth don’t meet properly when biting down, with some upper teeth fitting inside the lower teeth on one or both sides.
    • Open bite: Front teeth don’t touch when biting down.

Orthodontic Treatment Options

Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common and versatile option, effective for a wide range of orthodontic problems. The metal brackets are bonded to the teeth and connected by wires that are adjusted regularly to move the teeth gradually.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

A popular choice for adults seeking a discreet treatment option is Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that progressively shift your teeth into their ideal positions.

Ceramic Braces

Similar to traditional braces, ceramic braces use tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in more with your natural teeth, making them less noticeable.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces use brackets bonded to the backside of your teeth, making them virtually invisible from the front. These are ideal for patients who desire a completely invisible treatment option.

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces use specialized clips instead of elastic bands to hold the archwire in place, reducing friction and potentially leading to faster, more comfortable tooth movement.

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs)

Temporary anchorage devices (TADs) are small, screw-like dental implants used in orthodontics to provide a fixed point from which to apply force to move teeth.


An innovative device used in conjunction with braces or Invisalign, AcceleDent applies gentle vibrations to stimulate bone and teeth, potentially accelerating the orthodontic treatment process.

Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is a surgical procedure used in conjunction with orthodontic treatment to correct more severe bite and jaw alignment issues. The surgery involves repositioning the jawbones to improve how the upper and lower teeth fit together.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is orthodontic treatment painful?

Discomfort after orthodontic adjustments is common, but it’s usually mild to moderate and temporary. You might experience soreness, pressure, or achiness in your teeth and gums, especially after getting braces tightened or starting a new aligner tray with Invisalign.

Is there an age limit for orthodontic treatments?

There isn’t a strict age limit for orthodontics. As long as you have healthy teeth and gums, you can potentially benefit from treatment. However, orthodontists often recommend starting treatment between seven and 10 when the jaw is still developing. This can help address certain issues early on and make treatment shorter or easier. Adults can also have successful orthodontic treatment.

What’s the best orthodontic treatment for me?

The best orthodontic treatment depends on your individual needs and preferences. Here’s a breakdown to consider:

  • Traditional braces: Effective for most cases, visible but offer many customization options.
  • Invisalign: Clear aligners for a discreet option, may not be suitable for all cases.
  • Other options: Self-ligating braces for faster treatment, lingual braces for invisible treatment, headgear, or elastics for additional correction.
Why should I see an orthodontist over a dentist?

Orthodontists are dental specialists who receive additional training specifically focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating tooth misalignment and bite problems. They have the expertise and advanced techniques to create customized treatment plans for complex orthodontic cases. While dentists can handle some minor alignment issues, orthodontists are better equipped to handle the full spectrum of orthodontic needs.
