Orthodontics in Tampa, FL
While dentists and orthodontists work to enhance oral health, they help patients in different ways. Dentistry is a broader subject that deals with problems of the teeth, dental nerves, gums, and jaws. Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that helps treat occlusions (contact between the upper and lower teeth), bite, and misaligned teeth.
Orthodontists fit patients with braces and corrective devices to correct misaligned teeth and often work together with dentists to provide comprehensive care.
Feel free to clarify your doubts and get your dental check-up done at Carrollwood Dental Studio. We will create a suitable dental plan that helps you get the smile you deserve.
Orthodontic Treatment Can Help Correct Underbite
When teeth are misaligned, the lower set or the upper set of teeth may protrude and affect the bite. When lower teeth extend out over the upper ones, it’s called an ‘underbite’ and may result in a slightly hanging lower jaw.
As our trained orthodontists will tell you, an underbite is not merely a cosmetic issue; an underbite can cause the following problems:
- Challenges while speaking
- Problems with chewing food properly (which may lead to digestion issues)
- Facial and oral pain due to misalignment of the teeth and jaw
Proper tooth alignment also prevents you from biting your cheek, lips, gums, and lips while you eat. The orthodontist may shave one or two teeth or apply other devices like braces to correct the problem. Parents should ideally wait until age seven or eight to apply correction braces as this is when your child develops permanent teeth.
Meet with our qualified orthodontists and get misaligned teeth corrected the right way. We use the latest dental technology to help our patients enjoy pain-relief and improved dental aesthetics.
