How orthodontics can improve life qualityTuesday, 21st December, 2021
The field of orthodontics Navan is devoted to helping patients improve the health, function, and aesthetics of teeth. In the past, this type of dental treatment, which made use of fixed metal braces, was mainly used by children and teenagers to correct teeth positioning, dental development, and bite function. Now, with more convenient appliances (such as the globally popular Invisalign system), and the emphasis on appearance, orthodontics Navan has become a popular treatment option for adult patients.
At Navan Dental, we offer a wide range of teeth-correcting systems so that our patients can benefit from quality treatments in orthodontics Navan.
Why orthodontics is so important
When teeth or jaws are out of alignment or when there are overcrowding issues in the mouth that affect the look and function of teeth, these undesirable oral situations can result in pain and discomfort which can impinge on the quality of life.
These dental issues can affect eating and nutrition, create speech difficulties, negatively affect self-esteem and confidence, and even hinder benefitting from quality sleep. More than this, the accompanying pain can make it extremely challenging to focus on completing daily tasks at home, work, or school.
Teeth that are misaligned present challenges in meeting oral hygiene requirements. It is difficult to manoeuvre toothbrush bristles and floss thread in between crooked teeth, which means that when teeth cannot be cleaned effectively, cavities and tooth decay follow.
It is for all these reasons that dental practitioners encourage all patients to seek professional orthodontic care when teeth are crooked, overcrowded or when jaws are misaligned. Orthodontics is a viable solution for overcrowding, reducing gaps in teeth, underbites and overbites.
An orthodontics treatment plan requires a patient to commit to wear a teeth-correcting device (fixed or removable) for a set period of time. A consultation with a dentist offering teeth-straightening solutions is the first step that is required.
In this consultation appointment, our experienced dental practitioner will conduct a thorough assessment of the patient’s dental situation, needs, and goals. We will also discuss all the viable options open to the individual patient.
Signs that you might need orthodontic treatment
You are embarrassed by your smile
If your teeth are not correctly aligned or you have a gap-toothed smile, then the chances are that you will be too self-conscious to smile a wide, engaging smile. People with awkward smiles are usually at a disadvantage when it comes to social engagements and grabbing professional opportunities.
You are in pain when eating
Teeth that are not in natural alignment create biting and chewing problems. When food is not chewed properly, this can affect the digestive process and your ability to absorb nutrients adequately.
You experience jaw pain
Jaw misalignment can be the cause of headaches or sleeping problems experienced by patients.
