Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics? 

Orthodontics is a dentistry specialty that involves adjusting the alignment of your teeth and jaw. The team at Nova Dental helps patients of all ages gain their confidence back by diagnosing, preventing, and correcting misaligned teeth. 

Orthodontists treat an array of oral issues associated with bite or jaw alignment, such as:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Crossbite
  • Open Bite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Overjet
  • Abnormal eruption

Crooked, overcrowded, and improperly aligned teeth are common, but they don’t usually cause medical problems. However, your orthodontist may suggest treatment if you experience jaw pain or damage to your teeth or gums. 

Nova Dental treats both severe spacing issues and simple cosmetic adjustments with orthodontics.

What are my orthodontic treatment options?

At Nova Dental, the dental team provides multiple options for braces, including:

Traditional braces

This type involves fixed brackets and wires that are tightened over time to adjust spacing and crooked teeth.

Clear braces

Clear braces include ceramic brackets and white wire to create a subtle look on your teeth while adjusting their placement.

Invisalign®

This cutting-edge option offers a series of clear, plastic retainers that continuously apply pressure to your teeth, fitting the shape of the tray to give you straight teeth.

Lingual braces

These are traditional braces that are placed on the back of your teeth instead of the front.

While certain bite corrections require a specific type of braces, Nova Dental provides many choices. Traditional braces are the most common; however, many people want less obvious treatment, which has increased the popularity of subtle solutions like Invisalign. 

What precautions should I take with braces?

It can be difficult to properly clean teeth that aren’t perfectly aligned. Adding braces to the equation contributes to this challenge due to the brackets’ tendency to trap small pockets of food in your teeth.

To stay proactive about your oral health, be careful about eating too many sugars and starches, avoid gum and other sticky foods, and carefully brush your teeth at least two times a day with daily flossing.
