Orthodontic treatment does more than just give you straighter teeth - although that's a big part of it. Depending on the issue, certain bite Adult-Bracesand alignment problems can make it difficult to practice thorough oral hygiene and put your oral health at risk. Bite problems can affect everything from how you eat, to your speech. Braces bring your teeth into alignment so that your teeth are not only straight, but they also function properly in the process. Dr. Chithra Durgam and Dr. Leah Friedman, the dentists at Aesthetic Dental in North Bergen, NJ, offer orthodontics as well as general and cosmetic dentistry services for the entire family.


A New and Improved Smile with Braces in North Bergen, NJ

Orthodontics are used to correct bite and alignment issues such as crowding, overbite, open bite, and crossbite. Orthodontics work by applying pressure in order to gradually shift your teeth into better alignment, so the earlier those bite problems are identified and treated the better. Dentists can usually identify issues in children as their permanent teeth begin to erupt, and generally recommend treatment as soon as possible.

However, braces aren't just for kids and teenagers; more and more adults are getting either braces or Invisalign clear aligner trays in recent years. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, at least one in five orthodontic patients are adults over the age of 18.


Benefits of Getting Orthodontic Treatment (at Any Age)

The cosmetic results of braces or Invisalign are incentive enough for most people. If you've lived with crooked teeth, a significant overbite, or large gaps and spaces between your teeth for some time, your confidence and self-esteem have probably suffered as a result. But a cosmetically attractive smile doesn't just make people feel good about themselves, it improves the way the world sees them as a result.

Orthodontic treatment is also an investment in your oral health. From making it easier to brush and floss, to improving your nutrition and easing tension in your jaw and other related symptoms, orthodontic treatment can improve multiple aspects of your smile and oral health.
