at Riverside Dental Group will talk more about orthodontics.

Straight Teeth Make for a Healthier Mouth

There is no doubt that the most obvious benefit of correcting misaligned teeth and jawbones are cosmetic. However, there are reasons why orthodontics help can lead to better oral health. Crowded or crooked teeth are often difficult to keep properly clean. Overlaps or closely crowded teeth provide many hiding places for plaque and tartar (both made from bacteria) to collect. When your teeth are evenly spaced and aligned, all of the nooks and crannies in your mouth are much easier to reach with a toothbrush and floss. Misaligned bites can cause teeth to wear down over time. Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can also be a side effect of teeth that are in need of orthodontics.

Orthodontic Expertise

At Riverside Dental Group, we have highly-skilled and experienced orthodontists and dentists available for all of our patient’s unique needs. Traditional braces are still readily available. If tin grins are not in for your life, many patients choose clear ceramic braces, lingual braces, or Invisalign. All of these options can straighten teeth with near invisibility. Some orthodontic methods can correct mild to moderate problems in 6 to 18 months, so there’s no need to assume that the time commitment involved in straightening your teeth will seem insurmountable.
