Quiz: Your Experience With Orthodontic Care

It can be hard to anticipate what your experience with orthodontic care will be like. After all, your treatment is dependent on your particular needs, which your orthodontist can ascertain during your initial appointment. That being said, you can count on several benefits from having your misaligned smile corrected. Your ability to defend against tooth decay and gum disease will be improved. You can also lower your likelihood of experiencing TMJ dysfunction. If you are worried about how your orthodontic appliance will affect how you look, you can be relieved to learn that cosmetic orthodontics can lessen the effect on your appearance.

Questions:

True Or False: Thanks to imaging technology like the iTero digital scanner, your orthodontist can capture the information needed to plan your treatment digitally.

True Or False: If you are concerned about how you will look during treatment, tooth-colored brackets can reduce the visibility of your braces.

True Or False: Care from your orthodontist can address TMJ issues.

Answers:

True! Through digital imaging technology, your orthodontist can capture the images they need to properly plan for your treatment.

True! Tooth-colored brackets are made from ceramic instead of metal. Using this material reduces the change to your appearance, as your braces will be harder for people to notice.

True! Having your smile straightened can alleviate pressure on your jaw created by a misaligned bite. Of course, this is not the only way your orthodontist can help with TMJ problems. Patients with ongoing issues can come in to discuss treatment – many people can be well served by an oral splint that keeps their jaw joints more comfortably aligned.
