Today, people want not only healthy, but also beautiful – straight, aligned and white – teeth. Consultation with an orthodontist is an important step to improve ones appearance; Dace Priede, an excellent and experienced orthodontist, takes care of the adjustment of the bite in our clinic.
It is undeniable that a smile is important, because we use it not only to express our emotions, but also to communicate, including meeting new and possibly important people in the future. In other words, a beautiful smile is our calling card, which affects both our personal life and career. Unfortunately, many people around the world are ashamed of their smile, and for a variety of reasons, one of the most common is crooked teeth. Among other issues, this also lies within the competence of orthodontics – a branch of dentistry, meaning “straight teeth” in Latin.
Now that we understand that orthodontics is most directly related to the correction of bite problems and other undesirable alterations, we would like to remind that bite correction is not a quick process – wearing braces requires strength and patience from the patient. However, as a result of successful cooperation between the orthodontist and the client, everyone can get a charming smile and an anatomically correct bite, while also ensuring the normal functioning of the oral organs, which is one of the cornerstones of good health. Namely, if the teeth are incorrectly placed, it is not only an aesthetic disadvantage, because tartar and irregular periodontal pockets form between the teeth, which in turn can lead to gum disease or periodontitis. In addition, oral microbes, which easily enter the gastrointestinal tract, are the cause of many chronic diseases.
All of the above is also the reason why dental clinics nowadays offer orthodontic services. Besides, today there are many dental adjustment techniques available that are applicable to both children and adults.
