What is Orthodontics?

What is Orthodontics?

If you've just started exploring your corrective dentistry options, you might not be quite sure what orthodontics is. Put simply, orthodontics is a branch of dentistry where practitioners specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities. You might here bite irregularities referred to as malocclusions. Many individuals also call these conditions overbite or underbite.

It's important to remember that most malocclusions are hereditary. This means that the friendly team at the Roseville office of Dr. Matthew Comfort will be able to create an orthodontic care plan for your children or yourself based on information about your family's dental history and the specific needs of the orthodontic patient. It is also important to remember that not all malocclusion is hereditary. Thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, the early loss of teeth and other trauma can also cause this problem.
Who Can Benefit from Orthodontics

Who Can Benefit from Orthodontics

If your teeth are crowded, spaced or improperly aligned, braces can work wonders. Straight teeth not only look better, they’re also healthier, easier to keep clean, and an improved bite helps avoid jaw pain. Our highly trained orthodontist, Matt Comfort, is an expert at moving and spacing teeth gently and safely for children, teens and adults.

The earlier you see an orthodontist, it may be possible to avoid or reduce the amount of time needed for straightening in the future. Dr. Comfort suggests that parents bring their kids in for an orthodontic evaluation between the ages of seven and nine.

How do Braces Work?

Braces apply mild, steady pressure to your teeth, moving them slowly over time. Adjustments to your braces are made each month by the orthodontist until your teeth are perfectly lined up. Braces can be metal, clear or a natural tooth color. And braces can even come in a variety of colors, and changed to suit your fashion needs.

Many people are now choosing clear aligners that are nearly invisible. These custom-made trays are molded to the shape of your teeth, and they are removable for eating and brushing your teeth. The trays gently apply pressure, and they are replaced about every few weeks with new trays to continue the alignment process. Your orthodontist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of teeth that need to be straightened. Dr. Comfort will help you decide which braces or aligners are the right choice for you. orthodontist
Understanding Your Orthodontics Treatment Options

Understanding Your Orthodontics Treatment Options

Pursuing orthodontic dentistry is a big decision. If you or a family member is suffering from a malocclusion, bite problem or other jaw problem, the dental professionals at our Roseville office are here to help. Before you make any decisions about orthodontic treatment, your orthodontist will sit down with you and explain your options in detail—after a thorough orthodontic exam and evaluation.

 

Orthodontics and dentistry have come a long way in the last decade. Instead of the bulky, painful braces of the past, patients today can choose innovative, lightweight options designed to straighten the teeth without inconvenience or excessive discomfort. We offer:

• Invisalign systems to create beautiful teeth without visible wires and brackets.
• Essix retainers, which consist of molded plastic your orthodontist fits over the teeth without altering their appearance.
• Fixed retainers, which your orthodontist attaches to the tongue side of the teeth and are ideal for kids.
• Hawley retainers, which feature plastic plates and wire bands that your orthodontist wraps around the front of the teeth.
When is the Right Time to Get Braces?

When is the Right Time to Get Braces?

When making a decision about orthodontics, many parents find themselves asking when should children get braces? It's important to know that there is no hard and fast answer to this question. Your child's readiness for braces depends upon overall oral health and jaw development. Your orthodontist will help you determine when braces will be most beneficial to your child.

To help make it possible to get that straight and sparkling smile you want, we make straightening your teeth affordable with easy payment options.
