You + Braces = Happy Life

It's Simple Math. Let Us Explain ...

Nothing should stop you from achieving the beautiful smile you deserve. Braces slowly and carefully move the teeth in a controlled direction and are either bonded to the teeth or removable, such as Invisalign. Whether you want straighter teeth or an overall better smile, the team at Studio32 Orthodontics, orthodontists in Gainesville, FL, is here to make it happen. 

 

What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in correcting teeth and jaws that aren’t in the right position. There are many different types of braces or aligners to choose from, and children, teens, and adults can all receive orthodontia treatment. Some problems commonly corrected during orthodontic treatment include overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, gaps, and crowding teeth. Many people confuse dentists and orthodontists — all orthodontists are dentists but only 6 percent of dentists are trained orthodontists. 

Why Is Orthodontics Important? 

Orthodontic treatment changes the positions of the mouth and jaw, making it easier for patients to bite, chew, and talk. A more attractive smile can lead to more self-confidence and an improved self-image. Orthodontics can also prevent health problems, such as:

  • Bone loss
  • Worn teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth loss
  • Digestive issues
  • Speech impediments
  • Sleep apnea
  • Teeth grinding
  • Jaw or TMJ pain

Who Can Get Orthodontia Treatment?

Anyone can get braces or aligners no matter what age! We see children, teens, and adult patients and have specific treatment options for every smile. There are also no restrictions on types of braces for patients — child or adult can get any type they want whether that be the classic metal braces or sleek, new invisible aligners like Invisalign. 

What Happens If I Don’t Go To An Orthodontist?

Orthodontia treatment can take up a significant portion of a patient’s disposable income, so it’s only natural to ask what would happen if they chose not to go through with treatment. There are a few major mouth problems that could arise should you choose to forego orthodontics. These include difficulty keeping crooked teeth clean, higher risk of dental trauma, abnormal tooth wear, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, and even irregular facial and oral development in children. It’s worth it to invest in orthodontic treatment for you or your child in the long run. At Studio32 Orthodontics, we provide different financing options because everyone deserves to have a more beautiful smile.
