If your child’s teeth are naturally uneven or there is an issue with her or his jaw alignment, it is in your best interest to consult with an orthodontist as early as possible. Building this relationship is among one of the many benefits of orthodontics, and you can learn about some of the other advantages below in the following video by Dr. Steven Hietanen, an experienced Buffalo orthodontist.
Benefits of Orthodontics
The main benefits of orthodontics include creating a dental foundation. This foundation provides stability in an occlusion, for joints that are healthy, and for the future of that patient’s dentistry. When patients who have been orthodontic patients see their general dentist for routine checkups and cleanings, they are often considered some of the best patients in that dentist’s office. One of the foundational benefits of an orthodontic treatment is the opportunity to teach patients. We teach them to care for their teeth for a lifetime, compared with members of the population who don’t seek regular dental care.
Our doctors and professional staff are committed to delivering the highest quality patient care. We proudly provide orthodontic services for children, adolescents, and adults, specializing in early treatment for children. Doctors Dominic A. Colarusso, Jr., Steven J. Hietanen, and Andrew J. Dusel have equipped their offices with cutting-edge technology and computerized systems to provide excellence in diagnosis and treatment planning.
We believe that a beautiful, healthy smile is an asset to any patient. This is because a beautiful smile helps promote self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image. Orthodontic treatment brings the face, lips and teeth into proper proportion, as well as correcting problems with the occlusion (the way the teeth come together when the jaws close). Well-aligned teeth are easier to clean, creating better overall oral hygiene, thereby increasing the chances that your beautiful smile will last a lifetime. Furthermore, studies have shown that a healthier mouth can lead to a healthier YOU!
