We use a variety of techniques to help patients straighten teeth and improve their bite. Scott Sellers, DMD, of Choice One Dental Care®, offers different types of orthodontic treatment to Marietta, Georgia residents.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

There are fixed and removable dental instruments that are used to move teeth, retrain muscles and have an impact on the growth of the jaw. A dental professional will place gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws using these instruments. The nature of a patient’s condition is the deciding factor in which orthodontic approach would work most efficiently.

What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a type of dentistry, which corrects a wide range of teeth and jaw problems. If teeth are misaligned or crooked, then it can be extremely difficult to properly clean teeth, which can pose a risk of periodontal disease and the decay of teeth. There are certain instances where extra pressure on muscles in the jaw can lead to problems such as headaches, neck, shoulder, and back problems. A misaligned jaw can also be a cause of TMJ syndrome. If teeth are misaligned or not in the right place, then it could also make an individual’s appearance less attractive.

What’s the Best Age to Visit for Orthodontics?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their initial appointment around seven years of age. In most cases, dental problems that need orthodontic correction will reveal themselves by this age.
