Non-Cosmetic Orthodontic Treatments

We tend to think of orthodontists only in association to beautiful smiles, and although they do great work in correcting smiles, they also do multiple treatments that are for non-cosmetic reasons or have non-cosmetic benefits. After you speak with an experienced orthodontist Laguna Niguel, CA residents rely on from John Redmond Orthodontics, you will have a better understanding of treatments that may be available to you depending on your needs and dental goals. Call us today to schedule your appointment for a consultation and discussion for your treatment options. 

  • Bite Correction
    Although having a proper bite can improve the look of your teeth, it can have an even greater effect on the effectiveness of your teeth. A proper bite can be beneficial for chewing food properly and improving digestive health, as well as headaches and regular tooth pain. An incorrect bite can have long-term effects on your overall health and is something that you should consider correcting for more than just cosmetic reasons
  • Obstruction Removal for Proper Growth
    Especially with children, as teeth come in, they may be out of place in such a way that growth cannot continue properly. If untreated, it could cause tooth and mouth pain, headaches, chewing issues, speech issues, and more. An evaluation with a qualified orthodontist from our office can determine what treatment options you or your child may have and next steps for moving forward. 
  • Tooth Decay
    Teeth that are overcrowded or crooked can be more difficult to clean properly or between, making tooth decay, cavities, and overall dental health difficult to achieve. Even though teeth straightening, and braces are great for improving the aesthetic appearance of a person’s smile they can also make it much easier for proper cleaning and healthy dental hygiene to be achieved. 
  • Preventative Treatment
    If you’re experiencing pain when chewing, easily biting your inner cheek, teeth bumping each other in an uncomfortable way, or any other regular discomfort, it may be beneficial to have orthodontic treatment that can correct these issues by arranging your teeth properly. You can talk with our orthodontist about preventing further damage, like chipped teeth, before it’s too late and what treatment might help correct these issues before more damage is caused.
