What's Healthier About Straighter Teeth?

Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease, and the build-up of bacteria which is associated with bigger problems, including heart disease. More than seven out of ten American adults have some kind of issue with their bite, such as crowding, spacing, or overbites - your doctor may use the word Malocclusion. (Malocclusion=Abnormal tooth alignment)

At Mira Mesa Dental & Orthodontics, we know the best options to correct your alignment. Schedule an appointment with us in San Diego to know your options and choose the right one for you.

    Orthodontics Are for Children & Adults

    Having orthodontic treatment in childhood is ideal in order to take advantage of a youngster's natural growth processes to help move the teeth into proper alignment. Like the rest of the body, the teeth and jaws are now changing rapidly. So at this time, it's possible (for example) to create more room for teeth in a crowded mouth by using a “palatal expander” to rapidly widen the upper jaw. This phase of growth modification can shorten overall treatment time and ensure the best result if additional orthodontic appliances are needed.

    But remember, healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so you've never "missed the boat" for orthodontic treatment. In fact, about one in five of today's orthodontic patients is an adult. Several new technological developments - including tooth-colored ceramic braces, clear aligners, and invisible lingual braces - have made orthodontic appliances less evident, and enhanced the treatment experience for grown-ups. Before treatment, adults are carefully examined for signs of periodontal (gum) disease, which will be brought under control before treatment begins.

    Straight Teeth Are Healthier Teeth

    When your teeth are aligned, the health benefits are clear. With healthier gums, improved hygiene, and less wear and trauma, the choice is easy to make.

    What Types of Orthodontic Appliances are Available?

    When you imagine someone wearing braces, you probably picture small metal brackets bonded to the front of the teeth, with a thin wire running through them. This time-tested style remains very popular — but it's no longer the only option.

    We offer Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear aligners. Schedule an appointment so we can help you find the option that works best for your alignment needs!

    How do clear aligners work?
