Dental care is essential. Everyone should see their dentist about twice a year for routine exams and cleanings while remembering to brush, floss, and eat healthy between visits. But dental care may often involve procedures that have nothing to do with cavities or cleanings.

Orthodontic work is not just used to make smiles look better. It is often an attractive side effect, but the structure of a person’s teeth and their overall bite can have a dramatic impact on their dental health, not just their appearance or sense of self-esteem. In many cases, orthodontic work is undertaken to correct structural issues and help bites operate more effectively. Bites that are misaligned, crooked, or completely uneven can lead to severe dental issues. When a problem involves the structure of the jaw and upper row of teeth (what constitute a person’s bite) then orthognathic surgery is also needed. Orthognathic surgery refers to the jaw and surgery that can be implemented to make the jaw match up evenly and in a healthy manner.
