Regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining good oral health, however, sometimes a referral to an orthodontist who specializes in teeth alignment is required. Orthodontists can answer any questions you have about the alignment of your teeth, how your teeth feel in your mouth when your jaw is closed and what they look like.
There are many cases where an orthodontist consultation may be required, including:
If you are suddenly experiencing pain in your mouth, teeth or gums an orthodontist can help diagnose the problem and recommend a suitable orthodontic treatment that will provide relief and resolve the problem
If you are experiencing breathing problems such as sleep apnea, your orthodontist will be able to diagnose this and recommend an orthodontic treatment to fix misaligned teeth that are obstructing your airways
If you find speaking in public embarrassing because you struggle to articulate yourself, your teeth may be the problem. Misaligned teeth may prevent you from creating the right mouth shapes to form certain sounds correctly, an orthodontist can help with this.
Misaligned, crooked teeth can make eating and chewing difficult as the teeth do not align correctly to achieve a smooth biting action. A visit to an orthodontist can diagnose any issues with your bite and put a plan in place to align your teeth correctly.
If you are embarrassed of your teeth and cover your mouth when you smile, this is no way to live! An orthodontist can work with you to create your dream smile and restore your confidence for good.Back to Blog
