What Orthodontic Treatments Can Do For You

How orthodontics from your dentists in Braintree, MA, can enhance your smile

If you want a straighter, healthier smile, orthodontic treatment can help you achieve it. In fact, orthodontic treatment has many great benefits for both teens and adults. You are never too old to enjoy a beautiful, straight smile.

The dentists at Dr. George Salem and Associates in Braintree, MA, offer a wide range of dental and specialty services, including orthodontic treatment to enhance your smile.

Orthodontic treatment can correct:

  • An overbite or underbite
  • A crossbite or open bite
  • Rotated, crowded teeth
  • Gaps and unevenly spaced teeth

Let’s take a look at some of the additional ways orthodontic treatment can benefit you. Orthodontic treatment can:

Enhance the health of your smile; a straight smile is easier to brush and floss. Straight teeth also tend to accumulate less plaque than teeth with difficult-to-reach areas. Cleaner teeth mean fewer bacteria and less chance of gum and periodontal disease.

Reduce jaw stress; when you bite down properly, it reduces the stress on your jaws. Less jaw stress means less chance of TMJ problems including facial pain, headaches, and other TMJ issues. A smooth bite helps you enjoy the foods you love.

Reduce tooth damage; when your teeth are properly aligned, there is less chance of chipping or cracking teeth when you bite down. Less tooth damage means less need for tooth restorations and root canals later on.

Dr. George Salem and Associates offer a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options. You can choose from:

  • Conventional metal brackets and wires, which are the original braces
  • Ceramic or tooth-colored brackets and wires, which offer a more discreet look
  • Lingual braces, which are placed on the back of your teeth so they are less visible
  • Aligners, which are dental appliances that can be removed when you eat, brush, and floss
