Let’s Get a Few Things Straight.
There’s more to orthodontics than just beautifying your smile. In fact, orthodontic care can help reduce pain caused by TMJ disorders and prevent future oral health issues.
TMJ disorder, which stands for temporomandibular joint disorder, has a variety of causes but all relate to the joint where the jaw attaches to the skull. If you have any of the symptoms below, you might be having problems with TMD:
- Headaches and neck pain
- Jaw pain
- Ringing in the ears
- Lockjaw or trouble opening your mouth fully
- Audible popping and clicking when moving your jaw
If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, visit our TMJ and Headache Treatment page for more information and schedule an appointment today to talk to Dr. Jack and see if orthodontics might be the answer!
Of course, the most common use of orthodontics is to correct crooked or incorrectly aligned teeth. We offer a variety of teeth straightening options to help make your smile the best it can be, including:
Invisalign consists of a series of custom-molded, clear plastic trays that snap over your teeth. These trays can be removed for eating and cleaning and are almost unnoticeable. Dr. Jack is an Invisalign-trained preferred provider.
Inman Aligners work specifically on the front teeth and can achieve spectacular results in a short amount of time.
Comparable to Invisalign, ClearCorrect are clear aligners that gradually correct your crooked teeth.
The Propel Orthodontics system greatly speeds up the orthodontic process by creating tiny dimples in the bone surrounding a tooth. This allows the tooth to move into its correct position more easily as well as stimulating faster healing of the bone. This can reduce the overall time of orthodontic treatment by up to one half.
