What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the specialized treatment of teeth and their surrounding structures to correct alignment and improve chewing and speech. Orthodontic treatment can be done in a variety of settings, including private offices, hospital outpatient clinics, schools, and corporate dental centers.
There are several types of braces in Ballina that can be used to achieve optimal results. In-office braces use elastic bands and brackets to hold the teeth in their desired positions. These brackets must be replaced every few months, though they are generally very effective in correcting alignment.
Hospital outpatients may use either fixed or removable appliances while school-aged children may wear traditional wire retainers that stay on for several years.
The benefits of orthodontic care include improved speech and chewing abilities; reduced jawbone crowding; reduced risk of tooth decay; and a more attractive smile.
Orthodontic treatment is affordable and relatively simple, requiring little time commitment from patients beyond regular visits to the dentist. If you are considering orthodontic treatment for your child, Island Orthodontics is here to help you get the most out of our team of specialists.
