Orthodontics: Not Just for Braces
Oregon City, OR

A smiling girl holding up her retainerMany people think of braces when they hear the word orthodontist. But orthodontics is much more than that.

Orthodontists deal with a wide range of issues such as tooth grinding, speech difficulties, thumb sucking, bite problems, early or late loss of baby teeth, misalignment and much more. Problems can emerge throughout the lifespan and understanding when and how to correct problems is part of an orthodontist's professional expertise.

Some problems stem from behavioral issues, others are physiological. By and large, a person's health and self-esteem are greatly enhanced when both the mouth and teeth function appropriately. A proper bite is one of life's most essential needs. Without a good bite, it is difficult to speak clearly and to chew and digest food efficiently. Attaining the increased confidence to smile and speak up as a result of proper oral alignment can have huge positive effects on a person's success in life.

Certain orthodontic procedures are more effective in younger people before the face and jaw have completed formation and early treatment may be your child's best option. But many orthodontic procedures can occur at any age. Invisalign® is a great option for teens and young adults who may be nervous about the appearance of traditional metal braces.

If your child or teen has been living with oral issues or has emerging concerns, please give us a call at 971-470-0045 for a consultation. We will be happy to provide you with a full range of options, and recommended timelines for treatment.
