Orthodontist in Baton Rouge - Tiger Smile Family Dentistry

Orthodontic Treatment by Our Baton Rouge General Dentists

Tiger Smile Family Dentistry is a dental health service provider in Baton Rouge that offers a variety of teeth, mouth, and gum treatments to residents in the city and the surrounding areas. One of the procedures we have available is orthodontics treatment made up of two types –  Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. 

The former is made up of clear retainers that engage and move the teeth. They are changed out every two weeks while the latter comprises of clear brackets and wires that are bonded to the teeth. They are adjusted every 4 weeks.

 

A Brief of View of Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that corrects jaws and teeth that are not properly aligned. Crooked or misaligned teeth are hard to clean and vulnerable to periodontal diseases and tooth decay. This will also cause TMJ disorders and headaches when there are stress in the chewing muscles.


Do I Need Orthodontic Treatments?

Only your orthodontist can determine if you need this treatment. They will run the following diagnosis including your dental history, X-rays, a clinical exam, and special plaster models of your teeth. It is still up to them to recommend orthodontic treatment based on the results from the diagnosis.

You’ll be considered as a candidate for this procedure if you have the following:

Underbite: Your lower teeth are too far forward or your upper teeth are too far back

Open bite: The space between your side and front teeth bite together

Overbite: Also known as “buck teeth”, this occurs when your upper front teeth stick out over the lower teeth

Crossbite: When the upper teeth don’t come down in front of the lower teeth when biting together

Spacing: The gaps between the teeth are the results of missing teeth

Crowding: When there are too many teeth for the dental bridge to accommodate

Misplaced midline: The center of your upper front teeth doesn’t align with the center of your lower front teeth

 

Offering Modern Orthodontics to Help Restore Your Teeth

Each has its own benefits and treatment indications. Some of these include:

    • Improving cosmetic appearance
    • Preventing gum disease by relieving any crowding that prevents proper hygiene care
    • Closing spaces for cosmetic purposes or areas where food impaction would be an issue
    • Creating spaces where space is needed for future restorations
    • Correcting the bite

And even more so, that Tiger Smile Family Dentistry is the one taking care of your orthodontic needs. An attractive smile is just one of the benefits that you can get out of our procedures.
