Braces and orthodontics may not be enough to correct severe bite issues. Class 2 overbites and Class 3 underbites
are quite common along with crossbites. Some people may choose not to correct them, but for others it is quite a life changing experience. A poor bite can
lead to issues such as TMJ, speech problems and difficult chewing properly. With the help of orthognathic surgery in conjunction with
braces, your bite can be drastically improved.
Read the frequently asked questions about orthognathic jaw surgery and also real life case studies. The case studies were put together in order to give
you an idea of exactly what to expect and how to go about it the right way.
Did you know that many famous celebrities got their Hollywood smiles by way of orthodontics? There are several
well-known cases of celebrities that have undergone braces treatment before and during their careers. One of the most notable
would have to be Tom Cruise who had clear braces put on and he wore them proudly.
With changing technologies in hidden braces such as Invisalign, we are seeing fewer celebrities in public with traditional metal braces. However we
have compiled a list of famous people with braces from the past that you may find interesting to know were not born with those perfect teeth.
Orthodontic treatment does not discriminate against age. In fact adults of all ages are seeking orthodontics from metal braces to hidden braces
such as Invisalign to improve their smile. In many cases an adult had orthodontic treatment as a teenager and their teeth slowly shifted over
the years most likely from not wearing their retainer. In any situation, more and more adults find that getting their teeth in line is a great
investment. Here we have put together a list of frequently asked questions for adult orthodontics patients.
As a parent shopping for orthodontic treatment for your teenager, you will be surprised to learn of the different types of
orthodontics available along with the variable braces pricing. It is always recommended to get several opinions from multiple
orthodontist or dentist when looking for the best treatment for your child. Family and friend referrals are always beneficial also.
The average cost of braces will vary by major city and doctor. Payment plans are available in most practices to help afford orthodontic treatment.
Getting braces is a decision that is faced by most people at sometime in their life. While some are lucky enough to
have straight teeth through genetics and luck, the rest of us will commit to modern orthodontics to get the smile we want. A good smile
is important to many people along with the functionality of your teeth and bite. Your overall appearance can change too depending
on the situation of your orthodontic needs. You can look at our before and after photo gallery to get an idea of facial improvements
due to braces. There are many reasons to get braces and we have covered them in detail in our getting braces guide.
