Do you ever get a toothache? If you do, then you should know that there are several things you can do to prevent further damage to your teeth.
Toothaches happen because of bacteria that build up under the gum line. This causes inflammation and swelling, which makes it painful to eat or drink anything. Other times it can be a dental ulcer/oral pain or a problem with headgear or braces. Last of all, you could have a true dental emergency that requires immediate treatment.
Your teeth don’t just line up; they fit together like pieces of an intricate puzzle. Occlusion refers to their alignment and meeting together. Typically, the upper teeth rest above the lower teeth when your jaw is closed and the top surfaces of the molars line up. Injuries and diseases may cause changes in tooth positions, which is why you may need to see an orthodontist immediately if you think something is amiss. If you have impacted wisdom teeth, it might be hard for you to get any kind of dental care done until they come out. Let’s go over some of the most common dental problems, called malocclusion.
At Harris Orthodontics, we believe no one should have to postpone orthodontic treatments because of financial reasons. That is why we have a wide range of financing options so you can get started right away. Our team members are here to help and answer any questions you may have about our payment options.
