ROCHESTER HILLS, MI, April 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Orthodontic devices are intended to treat malocclusion. And there are a number of devices employed to effectively shift teeth into proper alignment. At Family Smiles Dental, Dr. Matievich utilizes traditional and modern methods of orthodontics.
From traditional, metal braces to modern aligners, a patient can express their dental needs, and Dr. Matievich will advise on the best possible treatment for each case. Treatment plans and the duration of wearing an orthodontic device depends on the severity of the malocclusion. Although orthodontic work differs for each patient, there is one thing that remains the same-the end result. Once braces or aligners come off, patients will notice their transformed smiles.
"For our patients, orthodontic work helps create straighter, more esthetic smiles. That is true, but that's not the only reason we value orthodontic devices. With the ability to adjust misaligned teeth, orthodontic work ultimately improves oral health by making it easier to clean teeth and gums," explains Dr. Matievich, Rochester Hills dentist.
How does orthodontic work improve the quality of dental care? For example, a patient with crowded teeth will have difficulty getting floss between teeth. The space between the teeth and near the gumline collects food particles and plaque bacteria. If a patient can't properly remove debris, the buildup can break down tooth enamel, which potentially will cause cavities.
Moreover, once the jaw and teeth are aligned, it alleviates any jaw discomfort caused by an irregular bite (crossbite, overbite, underbite, etc.).
In Rochester Hills, orthodontic work can help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile.
