ST. CHARLES, IL, January 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Minor malocclusion may seem like a small matter, but it's not. Malocclusion issues (misalignment of the teeth or incorrect bite) can affect your oral health, causing bigger problems. A straighter smile boasts better health benefits. If you have malocclusion, talk to Dr. Edmund Lipskis about orthodontic treatment.
"Orthodontics is not just about straight teeth. It's about beautiful faces and improved health." says Dr. Edmund Lipskis, St. Charles orthodontist.
Braces are applied to straighten crooked, crowded and spaced teeth. Each case of malocclusion can cause different oral health issues.
For example, if your teeth are crowded, your toothbrush and floss won't be able to clean the entire surface of some teeth, leaving behind food particles, acid and plaque bacteria. Over time, your tooth enamel may start to break down, causing cavities. It may be easier to clean widely spaced teeth, but it's harder for your gums to comfortably fit around your teeth.
Thus, when teeth are properly aligned, they support each other and offer easier access for cleaning purposes. If you don't fix widely spaced and crowded teeth, you raise the risk of developing tooth decay, gingivitis, and possibly, periodontal disease.
In regards to an incorrect bite and oral health risks, jaw misalignment could add extra pressure to your teeth and wear them down. This can increase your chances of tooth decay and gum disease. Bite issues can also lead to discomfort in the jaw joints. At St. Charles Family Dentistry, you can choose from three different orthodontic devices: lingual braces, conventional braces and plastic brackets. Your St. Charles orthodontist, Dr. Edmund Lipskis, can recommend the orthodontic device that will give you the best results.
It's important to discuss your dental needs, so you can start your orthodontic treatment. It's time to be healthier and feel happier about your smile!
