What are the signs you may need orthodontics Navan?

Tuesday, 21st January, 2020

When the subject of braces comes up in conversation, most would assume it's a procedure that's only used on children. Whilst this is true to an extent, this treatment can also greatly benefit adult patients as well by helping you sustain a strong, straight and healthy smile. Sadly, a lot of people miss out on these advantages because they may not be aware that they could qualify for them.

So with that in mind here are a few situations in which you may be better off with seeking orthodontist Navan

Crooked teeth

Perhaps one of the most common reasons we would recommend a brace to a patient is if they have any crooked or crowded looking teeth. Not only can this ruin an otherwise lovely smile, it can also provide a breeding ground for plaque and bacteria as they cling to the now hard to reach spots between those misaligned parts of your mouth. 

Correcting this with a brace will straighten out your smile as well as open up these hiding places and make them easier to brush.

At Navan Dental our highly trained team will help straighten out that smile in a simple, non-invasive procedure that will leave you with a confident grin you will love to show off.

Problems with your bite

Another sign you may require orthodontist Navan is if you are experiencing problems with your bite. Whether that's an over, under or misaligned bite that is causing you problems, a brace can easily fix that in a matter of months as your teeth and gums are gently pulled into the right position. 

A persistent ache or pain in your jaw muscles could be a sign that you require a brace. This is because when we bite our jaws exert pressure across our teeth and that force is equally distributed across your entire mouth. However, if there are crooked parts that weight can start to collect unevenly which can lead to certain teeth becoming worn, flattened and cracked.A persistent ache or pain in your jaw muscles could be a sign that you require a brace.

Correcting this with a brace can even out the surface area and hopefully ease off those symptoms over time. 

Difficulty with chewing

When we eat, our teeth break up food into small manageable chunks that our bodies can easily digest, but if you regularly struggle to eat or experience prolonged feelings of bloating or indigestion then your teeth may be struggling to properly break down your meals. Realigning them into a neater position may make it easier for you to chew your food properly to lessen those feelings of fullness after mealtimes. 

Issues surrounding speech

If there is a pronounced whistling sound when you speak or you struggle with certain phrases or words then you may benefit from a brace. Realigning certain parts of your gum line can make it easier for your mouth to form shapes and sounds that you previously struggled with.

These are just a few signs that you might benefit from a brace or corrective dental wear, for further information on how we can help sort out your smile just contact the practice and have a chat with our team.
