Seeking the orthodontic treatment you need, will not only improve your smile, it will also protect your overall dental health. Crooked, spaced, gapped, turned, or misaligned teeth can be hard to maintain and may lead to periodontal disease, tooth decay, or even tooth loss. Orthodontic problems can also cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, speech problems, difficulty chewing, and damage to the temporomandibular joints (TMJ Disorder). Malocclusions like protruding upper teeth can also increase the possibility of fracture after dental trauma. You can prevent these problems by making an appointment with Dr. Shirck today for your orthodontic treatment consultation.
