What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a specialized area of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of conditions affecting the alignment of the teeth and jaw.
At Dental Arts of New Orleans, we take a holistic approach to dentistry, and Orthodontics is no different. From initial consultation to treatment, we believe oral health and alignment issues are critical for overall oral health. Let’s learn more about orthodontics!
Orthodontic treatment not only shapes an aesthetic, beautiful smile, it also helps to establish and correct the function of any misaligned teeth. When your teeth and jaw are well-positioned and aligned, you’re able to bite, chew, and speak more clearly and comfortably.
Misaligned teeth also make cleaning more difficult. This may lead to cavities and abnormal erosion of tooth enamel, resulting in extensive, costly dental treatment.
Dental Arts Of New Orleans addresses these issues for our orthodontics patients, helping them look and feel great. Here are just a few of the benefits of receiving orthodontic treatment with Dr. Benoit at Dental Arts:
- Beautiful, Straight Smile
- Improved Bite & Speech
- Easier Brushing
- Reduced Cavities & Gum Disease
- Less Grinding And Chipping
