The word “orthodontics” is derived from the Greek words orthos, meaning proper or straight and odons meaning teeth.  Orthodontics is specifically concerned with diagnosing and treating tooth misalignment and irregularity in the jaw area.  Initially, orthodontic treatments were geared toward the treatment of teens and pre-teens, but these days around 30 percent of orthodontic patients are adults.

We know choosing orthodontics can be a tricky task. That's why we recommend you read our reviews first and see why we are your leading Temecula dental practice!

Here is a brief overview of some of the most common issues orthodontics can successfully treat:

  • Anteroposterior deviations – Common examples of anteroposterior deviations include underbite (the lower teeth are positioned further forward than upper teeth) and overbite (the upper teeth are positioned further forward than the lower teeth).  Both of these deviations can cause difficulty articulating and chewing.
  • Overcrowding – Overcrowding is one of the most common problems orthodontics can treat.  On occasion, lack of jawbone space means adult teeth cannot erupt in alignment with existing teeth.  orthodontics is able to realign the teeth using a number of unobtrusive devices and treatments.
  • Aesthetic issues – In some cases, the shape of the whole face is negatively impacted by malocclusions or a bad bite.  Braces can restructure and realign the jaw, lips and teeth to create a beautiful, even smile.
    There are many advantages to well-aligned teeth, including easier cleaning, better oral hygiene, clearer speech and a more pleasant smile.  Though orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, the American Dental Association suggests that an orthodontic assessment should be performed around the age of seven.  The earlier orthodontic treatment begins, the more quickly the problem can be successfully resolved.
