Without orthodontic treatment, many dental health issues caused by improper teeth and jaw alignment can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, speech impairments, chewing difficulties, tooth loss and more. Crooked and overly crowded teeth are hard to clean, and an improper bite can cause abnormal wear on the tooth’s surfaces as well as headaches or neck pain caused by excess strain or misalignment of the jaw joints.
The good news is that orthodontic treatment is highly effective in correcting and preventing a range of problems related to improper teeth and jaw alignment. But apart from improved oral health and proper oral function, one of the most visible benefits of correcting misaligned teeth and jaws with orthodontics is the enhanced appearance and self-confidence that results from a straight, beautiful smile.
At Denise A. Perrotta, D.M.D, we understand that how a person looks also plays a role in a person’s quality of life. That’s why Dr. Perrotta offers both orthodontic Invisalign and cosmetic dentistry in Winston Salem aimed to enhance the health and aesthetics of patients’ teeth. When your smile looks and feels good, you can feel better about yourself and your daily encounters with others.
Types of orthodontics
A variety of techniques are available to realign the teeth and attain a more aesthetically pleasing smile, including fixed dental braces and Invisalign. Dr. Perrotta offers clear Invisalign aligners in our Winston Salem office, one of the most comfortable, discreet and convenient ways to straighten teeth without traditional metal braces.
Who can benefit from orthodontic treatment?
Both children and adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment as a highly effective way to improve oral health and appearance.
