Comfortable, Functional, and Beautiful Smiles with Orthodontic Care
Orthodontic treatment is mostly known for giving people straight, beautiful smiles. However, the field of orthodontics has several other important functions. We can assist in the development and alignment of a healthy bite, alleviating many painful symptoms in the head, neck, face, and shoulders.
Dr. Raymond R. Benitez provides orthodontic care for people of all ages in Sacramento. Our team can give you a smile that develops properly, looks beautiful, and functions comfortably so you can enjoy many years of optimal oral health.
Orthodontic Care is for Smiles of All Ages
The reasons for orthodontic care vary. Here are some common conditions that can be corrected with orthodontic treatments:
Improper Musculoskeletal Development in Children: Some orthodontic appliances are therapeutic in helping children’s jaw and facial structures develop correctly. When treated early, children may not need extractions or braces later in life. Orthodontics can also improve facial profiles and correct speech impediments.
Crooked Teeth: If you want to enhance your smile, braces can align the most visible teeth, giving you a fuller smile that highlights your natural beauty. Although usually associated with teenagers, adults whose teeth have relapsed from earlier treatments or whose smiles have become misaligned due to the natural aging process, can also benefit from braces.
Moderate to Severe Malocclusion: Crooked teeth interfere with the healthy function of your bite and can make you prone to chipping or cracking teeth. Misalignment can also contribute to severe and painful health conditions, such as:
- Overbite or Underbite
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea
- Teeth Grinding or Bruxism
- Temporomandibular Joint Disorder
- Neck, shoulder, jaw, and facial pain
