Dr. Bo Yun, an orthodontist in Northvale, NJ, offers various orthodontic treatments to create straighter smiles for her patients.
NORTHVALE, NJ, September 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Orthodontic treatments include dental braces and are not only for children and pre-teens, but also for adults who desire straighter teeth and a beautiful smile. At Bo Orthodontics in Northvale, Dr. Bo Yun offers orthodontic treatments to help straighten her patients' teeth. Orthodontic care involves the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities.
"Whether you are a child, teenager or adult, you may desire straighter teeth. We offer orthodontic treatments to bring our patients' teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment, achieving facial balance," said Dr. Bo Yun about Northvale orthodontics. "Orthodontics can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions in people of all ages-from overbites to underbites and not just crooked teeth."
Acquired malocclusions can be caused by trauma to the mouth, sucking of the thumb, finger or pacifiers, tonsils and adenoids that obstruct the airway, mouth breathing or premature loss of primary or permanent teeth. These instances of malocclusions can be prevented, but if they do occur, Dr. Bo Yun, an orthodontist in Northvale, NJ, can create an appropriate treatment plan for realigning the teeth, lips and jaws.
While acquired malocclusions are created by outside sources such as trauma inherited malocclusions determine how well your teeth fit together and are determined by attributes such as tooth and jaw size. Some people may inherit large teeth and small dental arches or small teeth with large dental arches. Northvale orthodontics can be used to alter this inheritance, giving patients an attractive smile.
Dr. Bo Yun offers patients in Northvale braces, which is a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct teeth that are crowded, crooked, protruding, out of alignment or have irregular spacing. By moving teeth into their ideal position, dental braces help to create a more attractive and healthier smile for children and adults.
"When teeth are crooked or crowded, it is often difficult to keep them clean. If brushing and flossing cannot be properly completed, tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss can occur," said Dr. Yun, orthodontist in Northvale.
An improper bite can also significantly interfere with a person's ability to chew and speak properly, as well as cause abnormal wear to the enamel of the teeth. If a patient's teeth protrude and/or the upper and lower teeth do not come together properly, jaw problems may arise as well. By using braces in Northvale, Dr. Yun helps patients to keep their teeth in proper alignment. This also helps to keep patients' mouths healthy and functioning.
