Orthodontics can give you a beautiful and healthy smile in Mesa
A beautiful smile is a valuable asset; it is an important part of making a good first impression. People who suffer from orthodontic problems frequently avoid smiling or laughing because they are embarrassed by their crooked teeth.
While orthodontic issues can have a very negative impact on the ascetics of a person’s smile, they can have a similar impact on his or her oral health. When teeth are crooked, gapped, or crowded, they can be difficult to keep free of plaque, and this can result in cavities or gum disease developing.
Orthodontic issues can affect patients’ lives in several other ways. In some cases, it may be difficult for patients to speak clearly, and when the bite is severely affected, they may not be able to chew their food thoroughly. This can lead to digestive problems.
Dr. Fritz knows the importance of a smile that is not only beautiful but also healthy, so he offers patients clear braces and non-extraction orthodontics. Most patients’ problems can be corrected with clear braces. Although, patients who suffer from crowding that is a result of arches that are too small, will likely need non-extraction orthodontics.
Clear braces are the perfect solution for most patients whose orthodontic problems result from gapped teeth, an overbite, underbite, open bite, or a crossbite. Clear aligner trays discreetly straighten teeth without attracting undue attention to a patient’s orthodontic problems. Each tray will be worn for about two weeks before progressing to the next one in the series. Treatment typically takes about 18 to 24 months depending on your individual case.
When teeth are crowded due to a lack of room, Dr. Fritz can expand the arch to make room for all of the teeth rather than doing extractions to make room. Keeping all of the teeth helps the smile look natural and is healthier for the patient. It normally takes about the same amount of time to correct orthodontic problems using non-extraction orthodontics as it does with traditional orthodontics.
