Orthodontists deal with a wide range of issues such as tooth grinding, speech difficulties, thumb sucking, bite problems, early or late loss of baby teeth, misalignment and much more. Problems can emerge throughout the lifespan or after a traumatic event, understanding when and how to correct problems is part of an orthodontist's professional expertise.
Some problems stem from behavioral issues, others are physiological. By and large, a person's health and self-esteem are greatly enhanced when both the mouth and teeth function appropriately. A proper bite is one of life's most essential needs. Without a good bite, it is difficult to speak clearly and to chew and digest food efficiently. Attaining the increased confidence to smile and speak up as a result of proper oral alignment can have huge positive effects on a person's success in life.
