MAINTAINING DENTAL HEALTH
Leaving misaligned teeth untreated may be a source of embarrassment or self-consciousness. Improperly aligned teeth and jaws—called “malocclusion” — also can lead to a host of dental problems. The good news is that Dr. Charlene Rocha can correct these problems and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that’s good for life.
WHAT CAUSES ORTHODONTIC PROBLEMS?
Most orthodontic problems are inherited. Examples of the genetic problems are crowding, spacing, protrusion, extra or missing teeth and some jaw growth problems. Other malocclusions are acquired by thumb or finger-sucking, dental disease, accidents and the early or late loss of baby (primary) teeth.
WHY IS TREATMENT SO IMPORTANT?
Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. A bad bite can also cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, difficulty in chewing and/or speaking and excess stress on supporting bone and gum tissue. Without treatment, many problems become worse and require additional dental care later in life.
