You may wonder to yourself about orthodontic care, worrying that it is for one particular type of smile concern. We understand that the tendency to worry you don’t qualify for a certain type of care (especially something you really want) is a normal outlook. However, we would like to reassure you that since orthodontics is a field of dental care that focuses on aligning teeth and jaws, there’s quite a spectrum when it comes to candidacy. Remember, there are multiple treatments to address the diverse span of concerns we see. Learn more, so you recognize this type of care is likely for you, too.

Do You Just Want Cosmetic Improvement?

Perhaps there’s not really anything wrong with your occlusion (your bite, or the way your top and bottom teeth fit together). What you do have a problem with, however, is the fact that your smile doesn’t look very straight. You may be dealing with some small spaces, teeth that are crooked, or mild overlapping. If you are worried that you do not qualify for orthodontic care, think again! You will not need any type of intensive treatment, of course, but you are certainly a candidate for orthodontic treatment as a means of cosmetic improvement.

Do You Need Care For True Misalignment?

Perhaps you’re not someone who just needs your anterior teeth aligned a bit, so your smile looks better. Instead, you are seeking orthodontic care as a means of getting your teeth aligned, so your bite fits together properly and you can use your teeth for their primary function of chewing and speaking. The byproduct of this alignment, of course, will also include a much more beautiful, uniform-looking smile. If this describes you, then you are certainly a candidate for orthodontics.
