Orthodontics Q & A

What is involved in orthodontic care?

Orthodontic care centers on diagnosing, preventing, and remedying problems in tooth and jaw alignment. In addition to improving the aesthetics of your smile, orthodontic treatments foster proper oral function and elevate overall oral health. A properly aligned smile is easier to maintain, lowering the risk of dental issues such as cavities and gum disease.

Who is a candidate for orthodontics treatment?

Orthodontics can help individuals with various dental concerns related to tooth and jaw alignment. Orthodontic care isn’t just about aesthetics; orthodontic treatment can also improve oral health and overall well-being. 

You may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment if you have:

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite, underbite, or crossbite
  • Protruding teeth
  • Jaw pain or clicking
  • Difficulty chewing or speaking

If you or your family member experience any of these signs, schedule an orthodontic consultation at Dental Associates of NJ.

What sorts of orthodontic treatments are available?

The orthodontic solutions at Dental Associates of NJ accommodate a wide spectrum of patient needs and preferences. The office can help you with traditional braces, an exceptionally effective approach for intricate cases. 

They also offer contemporary clear aligners like Invisalign, a discreet and comfortable alternative ideal for mild to moderate alignment concerns. Once you undergo a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Reff can recommend the best treatment for your smile goals.

Can adults benefit from orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment isn't limited to adolescents and children. A growing number of adults are exploring orthodontic solutions to help with longstanding alignment issues or address shifts that have occurred over time. Adults may appreciate options like clear aligners because of their ease of use and subtle appearance. 

What happens at an orthodontic consultation?

When you come in for a comprehensive assessment and consultation, Dr. Reff evaluates your oral condition and discusses your goals. If he recommends treatment, he’ll create a customized treatment plan.

You’ll come in for future appointments to have brackets affixed to your teeth if you’re getting braces. For clear aligners, you’ll undergo a 3D scan of your teeth that is sent to a lab, which creates your aligners. You change these aligners every week or two as your teeth shift into a more favorable position.
