Why Is Correcting Your Bite Alignment with Orthodontic Treatments Important?
Granada Hills dentist, Dr. Gohar Hovsepyan, is a dedicated professional who offers a variety of bite correction techniques. She does this because the alignment of the teeth has more to do than just achieving a beautiful smile—it also assists patients in avoiding the need for jaw surgery in the future. Bite alignment can affect so many aspects of one’s oral health. When the teeth are not properly aligned for chewing and biting forces, it can result in conditions such as temporomandibular joint disorder—causing pain and discomfort to patients. Additionally, poor bite alignment can also cause unwanted wear and tear on the natural teeth and any restorations present in the smile. Realigning the teeth in the dental arch is often done for these reasons.
Methods of realignment
Teeth alignment can be achieved in a number of different ways at Viva Smile. Dr. Gohar Hovsepyan is excited to offer the following choices in Orthodontics Granada Hills for patients to consider:
- Inman aligner – the Inman aligner is a special removable device that is used to achieve realignment of the teeth, specifically those near the front of the smile. They eliminate the need for fixed braces and can shorten overall treatment time for many of our patients.
- Traditional braces – our practice uses conventional orthodontics for patients who have moderate to severe malocclusion. Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires affixed to the natural teeth to gently reposition them into better alignment. Patients are educated on how to care for their braces to keep them from breaking and allow them to work their magic!
- Invisalign – another option for patients with mild to moderate misalignment to consider is that of Invisalign. This is a method of realigning the teeth that are achieved with clear removable aligner trays worn overnight and throughout the day. These are discreet and extremely comfortable for teenagers and adults.
