From the ages of 9-14, the adult teeth are in the process of growing and working out where they fit into what’s generally a very confined area. For many people in this age group, the teeth grow fine, with their placement in the mouth causing no problems. However, for others whose teeth and jaws don’t fit together due to misalignment, there is a need for orthodontics to minimise the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. If you need to see an orthodontist near Dandenong, make an appointment with the specialist at Springvale Dental Smiles.
What Are the Common Orthodontic Problems?
The most commonplace problems an orthodontist will see include excessive overbite (where the top row of teeth bites out noticeably over the bottom row) or underbite (bottom row bites out), protruded teeth, and overcrowding of teeth, a situation in which there is not enough room for all the teeth to sit side by side without overlapping. With some helpful orthodontic treatments at our clinic, these problems can either be corrected or prevented.
What Orthodontic Treatments Are Available?
Typically, the most common treatments used in orthodontist procedures include braces, clear aligners (also known as invisible braces), or a removable plate which is inserted into the mouth and pushes the teeth into their desired position.
