Quality Orthodontic Services for Adults in Three Rivers

A majority of orthodontic work is performed on younger patients, but you still have time to get treatment for your orthodontic needs, even into your 40s or 50s. There could be any number of reasons why you would need orthodontic work done later in life, most of which can be traced back to tooth decay, enamel loss, or other dental health issues. You may also be dealing with bone loss in more severe cases. The effects these issues can have on your overall health are not as apparent as the aesthetic effects, which is why we at Bandeen Orthodontics in Three Rivers take the time to thoroughly inspect your teeth to properly diagnose these issues and formulate a strategy that will produce a healthy, great-looking smile for superior long-term results. There are several issues that orthodontic services can help with, so read further for more information about signs that you may need to schedule your initial appointment.

Trouble Eating Certain Foods – an overbite, crooked teeth, or missing teeth can make it difficult to eat certain foods, especially harder, crunchier foods like apples, carrots, and others.

Speech Issues – problems with the alignment of your teeth can cause lisps, whistles, or other impediments to your usual speech patterns, causing embarrassment and possibly making it difficult for people to understand what you’re saying.

Overbite or Underbite – if you have this type of misalignment, you may find it different to bite through thicker foods like sandwiches, fruits, and vegetables, requiring you to cut them into smaller pieces before eating them.

Swelling of the Gums – crowded, misaligned teeth can be difficult to clean properly, resulting in inflamed gums due to plaque buildup.

Food Stuck in Your Teeth – crooked teeth have nooks and crannies in which food particles can get stuck, making them nearly impossible to remove without professional help.

You should schedule your initial consultation with Bandeen Orthodontics in Three Rivers if you are suffering from any of these issues. We will do a thorough inspection of your teeth to identify any and all issues and discuss the options available to you to correct them. We can also determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign, which is a much less invasive treatment than traditional braces. We will also work with you to figure out which financing options are available to you. Take the first step on the road to improved orthodontic health and schedule your initial appointment with Bandeen Orthodontics in Three Rivers.
