A smile can be an asset. But smile doesn't always look pleasant. Sometimes, it shows the disturbance in the alignment of teeth which can be caused by genetics, skeletal factors, or malocclusion - when opposing teeth do not mesh normally.
One common condition is buck teeth. These are prominent front teeth that stick out. On top of the change in facial appearance and low self-esteem, this may lead to mouth breathing and inability to eat and chew properly. This condition requires orthodontic work which when started earlier can last longer.
There are different braces and appliances that are made to provide treatment for different forms of misalignment. One treatment that is gaining popularity today is Invisalign, a straightening alternative for fixed braces made up of transparent, removable (for easy oral hygiene maintenance) orthodontic trays called aligners. They are made up of plastic resin and apply less force and less pain than fixed braces.
Through x-rays and photographs taken by your orthodontist, 3D images are made.
The cure for misalignment always depends on a situation. Always consult your orthodontist before deciding what method to use. Fixing common teeth problem as early as possible can help not only in your dental health but your overall health as well.
