What Types of Issues Can Lingual Braces and Other Orthodontics Treatments Solve?

The best way to discover what lingual braces, traditional braces or clear aligners can do for you, is to visit an orthodontist. They can help you figure out the exact issues you may be experiencing, and from there they will be able to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs and goals.

If you have issues with overcrowded, crooked or protruding teeth, spacing issues, premature loss of baby teeth, malocclusions, jaw issues, injuries caused by accidents or oral hygiene issues, your orthodontist can help!

Avoiding a Trip to The Orthodontist Can Cost You More Money in The Long Run

Having crooked or crowded teeth can lead to bad oral hygiene and serious health issues. When you have crooked or crowded teeth it can be hard to brush and floss your mouth properly. When you’re not cleaning your teeth properly plaque and bacteria start to build up. Plaque can then turn into tartar, and this increases your chance of contracting gingivitis. If left untreated by your orthodontist, gingivitis can cause periodontitis. Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and can also eat away at the jaw bone.

Crowded teeth can also rub up against one another as the teeth shift within the mouth. When the teeth rub against one another they start to wear down and decay. This can cause inflammation, pain and abscesses in the mouth.

Trying to fix these issues after they’ve occurred, and turned into serious problems could cost you a fortune in medical bills.

Small Oral Health Issues Could Lead to Major Diseases

When you avoid your orthodontist, you are putting your overall health at risk. A small oral health issue can turn into something far more serious, if left untreated. Serious diseases like heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis have been linked to periodontal disease. It’s also been discovered that periodontal disease can increase your risk of having a stroke.
