Orthodontics Q&A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the dental specialty area that focuses on the alignment and positioning of your teeth. 

Incorrectly positioned teeth can cause various problems. They are more challenging to keep clean, which increases your risk of tooth decay. Furthermore, an abnormal bite can interfere with your ability to bite, chew, or talk. 

Orthodontics includes traditional metal braces, dental aligners, and some surgical procedures to correct the positions of your teeth and the appearance of your smile. 

Why would I need orthodontic treatment?

The team at Pine Center Dental Group recommends orthodontic treatment to correct issues, including:

  • Gaps
  • Overcrowding
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite

If you’re concerned about the appearance of your smile, talk to your dentist at Pine Center Dental Group about your treatment options. 

Can I have orthodontic treatment as an adult?

While many people associate orthodontic treatment with children and teenagers, it’s never too late to correct the alignment of your teeth. The team offers clear dental aligners for older adolescents and adults who want a perfect smile but don’t want to deal with traditional braces.

The Pine Center Dental Group team provides thorough exams, including X-rays, to identify the best orthodontic treatment option to correct your smile.  

What should I expect during orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment varies depending on the severity of your dental alignment issue. For example, if you or your child have severe alignment problems or an abnormally shaped jaw or palate, your orthodontic program could begin with oral surgery to prepare your mouth and jaw for braces. 

Alternatively, if your issue is mild, your dentist might be able to correct your smile with dental aligner trays in as little as six months.

Whether you have traditional braces or dental aligners, routine appointments are needed so your dentist can monitor the movement of your teeth and ensure that your orthodontic treatment is progressing as planned. 

Your dentist might tighten or adjust your braces or provide your next set of aligners at your orthodontic check-ups. 

Your dentist at Pine Center Dental Group can provide personalized advice on what to expect during orthodontic treatment.
