A BEAUTIFUL SMILE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER
Orthodontic care involves the use of appliances. Removable appliances are put in and taken out by the patients and can be used to straighten teeth, correct an irregular bite, close unsigtly gaps and to bring tooth and lips into proper alignment. They also can help with procedures in other areas of dentistry, such as cosmetic and implant dentistry. In young children, orthodontic treatment also may guide proper jaw growth and permanent tooth eruption. Orthodontic care is not just cosmetic in nature. It also can benefit long-term dental health. Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss. This can help reduce the risk of tooth decay. It also can help prevent gingivitis, an inflammation that damages gums. Gingivitis may lead to infection, which occurs when bacteria cluster around the area where the teeth meet the gums. Untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis. This type of gum disease can destroy bone that surrounds the teeth and lead to tooth loss. Kramer dental is able to provide spring retainers for minor rotated and tipped teeth and occlusal guards. Other orthodontic needs will be discussed and referred to an Orthodontic office.
