Information About Orthodontists In Cambramatta

An orthodontist is a dentist that specializes in correcting any misalignments in the teeth or jaw. Having misaligned teeth can cause many dental problems such as speech defects, problems chewing and poor oral hygiene. Orthodontists in Cambramatta can help to fix these problems through a variety of methods.

Your dental hygienist or regular dentist will let you know if you have any misalignment problems and will refer you to an orthodontist. The orthodontist will take any necessary x-rays and will suggest different treatment options such as braces or retainers, depending on the state of your teeth and what is best for you. Braces or retainers are normally worn for a short time and exchanged frequently until your teeth and jaw are correctly aligned. Some of them are not metal and cannot be seen when you speak or smile, which is helpful for people who are self-conscious about their teeth.
