Why opt for orthodontic treatment?

Do you happen to reserve yourself when you want to smile? Are you worried about your teeth and how they look? Do you tend to cover your mouth when you speak because you are too embarrassed about crooked or spaced teeth? These habits prevent you from enjoying your life to the fullest but did you know that its ill effects scale way beyond this. 

Having poorly positioned teeth makes you smile less often in personal, social, and professional settings. It tends to create a poor first impression and affects your life in general. It negatively impacts your self-esteem and confidence. However, at Wilmington Orthodontic Centre, Dr. Pancko and her team are determined not to let this affect your life and help you get a sparkling straight smile.

Poorly aligned teeth change your facial aesthetics. Having protruded teeth, crowded teeth, spaced teeth, an underbite, or an overbite influences the way your face grows and disturbs its harmony. Your facial measurements get disturbed. Apart from this, malocclusions also affect your temporomandibular joint, that is, the jaw joint. It leads to unnecessary heavy occlusal forces which are borne by the joint. Over time it leads to severe jaw pain, which makes normal functions like chewing, talking, and speech difficult. Getting an orthodontic treatment done to straighten your teeth at Wilmington Orthodontic Center will help you correct these anomalies and prevent the complications that come with it. 

Spacing between teeth may lead to lisping and difficulties in pronunciation, which, if not treated early, may lead to a lifelong speech impediment. Dr. Pancko suggests that opting for orthodontic treatments as soon as possible can eliminate the chances of a speech impediment. You can schedule an appointment with us at Wilmington Orthodontic Center to know more and get on your journey to better oral health with our various orthodontic treatment modalities.

Crowded teeth make maintaining proper oral hygiene difficult. Since all teeth are overlapping each other, daily toothbrushing cannot reach these crevices. In the long term, food debris gets accumulated, which leads to the formation of tartar and gives rise to gum disease like periodontitis which leads to tooth loss if not treated at the earliest. It also puts you at a higher risk of dental decay. This further leads to systemic complications and infections. This is where Dr. Pancko and her team at Wilmington Orthodontic Center can come to your assistance.

Another complication often faced by people with malaligned teeth is sleep apnea. Constricted jawbones interfere with breathing and even lead to sleep apnea. These reasons necessitate the need for orthodontic treatments. If you have crooked or spaced teeth and want to get them treated, you can schedule an appointment with us at Wilmington Orthodontic Center for more.
