Orthodontics Treatment Q & A

What is orthodontics treatment?

Orthodontics treatment is a branch of oral health care used to correct crooked teeth, crowded teeth, and jaw misalignments. It uses oral appliances like braces to gradually straighten teeth, improving your oral health and confidence.

Many children and teenagers undergo orthodontics treatment, but it’s safe for adults as well. To ensure the best possible results, the team at Emery & Scuro DMD, PC offers a range of orthodontics treatment options, including palatal expansions, functional appliances to decrease the need for surgery, and traditional braces.

What are the benefits of correcting my misaligned teeth?

Misaligned teeth can interfere with proper chewing and digestion, and create speech impediments. Misaligned teeth are also more difficult to clean and therefore more prone to decay and infection.

Correcting your misaligned teeth with orthodontics ensures that your teeth and jaw function optimally. You’ll have a straighter, healthier, and more beautiful smile in a few months or a couple of years, depending on the complexity of your case.

Is orthodontics treatment painful?

Orthodontics treatment is safe and well-tolerated. When your Emery & Scuro DMD, PC provider puts your braces on, you shouldn’t feel any pain. However, in the days following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some mild soreness or discomfort.

Am I a good candidate for orthodontics treatment?

Only a qualified dentist can determine if you’re a good candidate for orthodontics treatment. Following an oral exam, a review of your oral health history, and a discussion of your goals for treatment, Emery & Scuro DMD, PC can make recommendations that align with your individual needs and budget.
