Orthodontics are not just for children and teens — in fact, one in five orthodontic patients is an adult. Left untreated, many orthodontic problems such crowded teeth and bad bites may become worse. And unfortunately, these problems can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, and pain in the jaw joints.
Dental Partners of Boston offers orthodontic treatments that are convenient — and often invisible - to fit into your current lifestyle. And with Invisalign transparent braces, you can easily straighten your teeth with no metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth.
Orthodontics is the part of dentistry dedicated to the prevention and treatment of crookedness and imbalance in the teeth and bite. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease, and lead to tooth loss. Other orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, difficulty chewing, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints.
In our multi-specialty Boston dental practice, our orthodontists are able to closely coordinate your care with your oral surgeon, periodontist, endodontist and family dentist to ensure your treatment plan is managed well and that you receive the smile of your dreams.
