Crowded teeth, or teeth with too much space between them, is one of the many causes of oral health problem. Crowded teeth are harder to clean, leading to cavities and gingivitis, while teeth with too much space between them more easily trap food and other debris, also causing cavities.
However, these problems can be combated by getting braces from Dr. Jerrold Hennes at Hennes Orthodontics in [city,] California.
There are a few cosmetic variations of braces, but all of them have the same principle. Once the brackets are cemented to the faces of the teeth and the other hardware is installed, the orthodontist, Dr. Jerrold Hennes, can start the process of progressively applying tension in adjustment sessions. This will slowly move your child’s teeth into their new and improved alignment.
By attending all of the adjustment sessions, it will keep the total treatment time to the absolute minimum. These appointments are also helpful for replacing any hardware that has wear and tear as well as monitoring the overall health of the mouth.
After you’ve successfully thinned the crowd of teeth in your mouth, or gotten all of your teeth in their proper place, you’ll have that incredible smile you wanted when you started your orthodontic journey.
