It goes without saying that your teeth develop, change and grow over time. When your developing teeth has too much or too little space in the mouth to grow, they can eventually become misaligned or crooked. Sometimes misaligned teeth can develop into malocclusions such as underbites, overbites and deep bites that disrupt proper eating or speech. Orthodontics can get rid of crooked teeth for good.
Malocclusions can be diagnosed in children, teenagers and adults. During routine checkups, malocclusions that require treatment are one of the first things that a dentist will search for and identify. At Lacewood Square Dentistry, we provide corrective orthodontics in Halifax that can help correct malocclusions and misaligned teeth.
The most common and effective treatment for crooked teeth are traditional metal braces. Made of lightweight titanium and durable stainless steel, they correct teeth by supporting and straightening them over a period of, months or years. Braces provide constant but gentle force and pressure on the teeth until they move into the correct position.
As specialists in Halifax orthodontics, we highly recommend braces as a solution for malocclusions an misaligned teeth.
