Orthodontics go well beyond just straight teeth. They can improve your overall oral, physical and mental health.
A straighter set of teeth will improve your confidence, but did you know it can improve your oral health, too? This may surprise you because for decades orthodontics were just used to help people achieve straight teeth. But orthodontics can do so much more, like improving your bite, protecting your jaw health, and benefiting your breathing and overall health.
At Restore Modern Dentistry, we offer patients the most advanced orthodontic treatments available to treat a wide range of oral health conditions.
We use state-of-the-art technology and techniques that are proven effective in improving smiles and overall dental health. Our team is dedicated to providing our patients with exceptional care and results.
We are proud to serve the greater Bentonville area and give people healthy and beautiful smiles.
We have extensive experience treating all types of orthodontic problems using a variety of treatments including:
Bite correction. Correcting an improper bite involves repositioning the jaws into proper alignment. The goal here is to create better chewing function and improved aesthetics. We often recommend this type of procedure if someone has experienced pain from the way their jaws are currently positioned. It can be done using braces or clear aligner trays. Orthodontic treatments can help fix issues including:
Orthodontics can also help to address other dental issues, such as:
But there’s so much more that orthodontics can help.
Jaw growth modification. If your jaw does not develop as it should, it can cause problems with teeth crowding and create bite problems, as well as putting stress and strain on your jaw joints. This leaves you at risk of developing jaw problems, including painful temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD.
Midface deficiency. Also known as midface hypoplasia, this condition develops when the upper jaw does not grow as intended, leaving a “flat” or “sunken” midface area. Individuals affected by midface deficiency also look as if they have a large chin because their lower jaw is longer than their upper jaw.
Recessed chin. In this situation, the lower jaw does not meet the upper jaw correctly, leaving individuals with a jaw that is set too far back, which affects facial appearance, too. Individuals with jaws that are set too far back often are described as having a “weak” chin.
Sleep-breathing disorders. Sleep-breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be tied to orthodontic issues, including jaws that are underdeveloped or those that are set too far back. These breathing disorders can cause serious, long-term, serious health problems, including heart issues, diabetes and other disorders.
When you think of braces, you probably think of the bracket and wire systems commonly seen in the mouths of teenagers. While conventional orthodontics can work in some cases, they are not a “one-size fits all” solution. We recognize this and, as a result, offer our patients advanced treatment options to suit their unique orthodontic needs.
Controlled Arch Orthodontics was designed to overcome the challenges that standard systems fight. The ability to move teeth forward instead of backward solves many challenges, such as the common need for extractions that can flatten the facial profile. It also ensures that the temporomandibular joint is in a good position, and the jaws are aligned in a way that doesn’t create muscle pain from balancing a “bad bite.”
Developmental Orthodontics. Developmental Orthodontics treats a deficiency of the size of the jaws to correct crowded smiles and bring alignment to the bite. This ensures that your smile and your jaws are straight and stable, and can help reduce TMJ issues and orthodontic complications and the need for unnecessary tooth extractions and invasive – and painful – surgery.
Refined Clear Aligner Orthodontics. This system uses clear aligner treatment to make small moves. With no visible hardware, we use this approach for individuals who want to quickly and discreetly update their smiles.
