Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a part of dentistry. It focuses on the positioning of your teeth and their alignment. While poor alignment might seem like just a cosmetic issue, poorly aligned teeth can put you at a higher-than-average risk of tooth decay, enamel wear, and other oral health complications. Poor alignment can also affect your speech and your ability to chew.

When you come to We Care Dental for orthodontic treatment of any sort, your treatment begins with a free consultation. The team views your teeth in their starting position and helps you choose the treatment that best fits with your goals and lifestyle. They work with you to create your plan so you can feel confident and help in the decision-making process. 

What can orthodontics treat?

Orthodontics can treat poorly aligned teeth regardless of your age. There are many different kinds of misalignment, called malocclusions. You might have one or more of these problems causing you to seek an orthodontic solution:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Overjet
  • Overcrowding
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite
  • Wide spaces between teeth
  • Impacted teeth (teeth that haven’t emerged above the gum line)

The team at We Care Dental can tell you which specific issues they’ll fix during your treatment. Fixing malocclusions can help your teeth fit together more comfortably and improve your overall appearance. It also makes it easier to thoroughly clean your mouth when you brush and floss. 

What are my orthodontic treatment options?

We Care Dental is proud to offer several innovative orthodontic treatment options. They help you choose the right treatment based on your preferences and the degree of your malocclusion. Available treatments include:

ClearCorrect™

ClearCorrect involves a coordinated series of transparent plastic aligners designed to fit perfectly over your teeth. Each aligner in the series gradually pushes your teeth toward a straighter, more aligned position. 

Bioliners™

Bioliners are clear, ultra-thin plastic aligners that push your teeth into a straighter position over time. You get a series of them custom-designed to fit perfectly over your teeth. They’re designed to treat mild malocclusion.

Traditional braces

Traditional metal and wire braces are often the best option to treat severe malocclusion. You might be able to make big changes with traditional braces before transitioning to using Bioliners or ClearCorrect for the final touches. 

To find out more about Bioliners, ClearCorrect, traditional braces, and general orthodontics information, call We Care Dental or book your consultation online today.
