Solutions For Overcrowding Teeth
Overcrowding is an enormous problem in many people. This happens when a tooth decides that it wants to grow in over another, or vice versa, and can cause major oral problems. Usually, this is addressed during childhood, when baby teeth fall out and the adult teeth grow in. This is a problem particularly with teenagers. Luckily, there are plenty of solutions to solve these problems.
Schedule A Consultation
A general dentist, or your family dentist, will take a proper look at your mouth first. They will talk to you about exactly what is going on with your overcrowding problem and what they can do about it. Hopefully, you will have a resident orthodontist in house so you can go directly to them for further treatment. Sometimes though, you will need to get a referral to another orthodontic office. Orthodontists specialize in tooth movement. That is a broad definition, but they are the ones that can safely put your teeth in the right place through a number of procedures. No matter how severe or mild your case may be, your orthodontist will discuss with you the best option.
There are several things they can do to give you a great smile. Braces and Invisalign are great ways to fix mild overcrowding. These products will gently pull and push the teeth into place. Your orthodontist will study your entire jaw, determine what each tooth needs to do, and how much time to give that tooth to get there. They are specially trained in structuring these products so that each tooth is strong and healthy. In severe cases, surgery may be required. Pulling teeth is like, well, pulling teeth. It is never fun, but it is necessary sometimes. If they need to pull, they will replace with fake teeth and retainers that will look natural and beautiful.
These solutions will also give you a better ability to bite down. Your teeth won’t be stressed when you bite down due to crookedness. Remember, these solutions are always better than doing at-home dentistry. This is a ‘don’t try this at home’ kind of situation. The professionals will use the latest technology and years of experience and training to give you a safe way to a healthy and great looking smile.
