Did you know that your teeth and their position can affect the way you speak? In conjunction with your tongue, oropharynx, and lips, your teeth have a significant part in the articulation of consonants or your way of speaking. One of the first things that people notice is the way you smile and how you talk. If you have speech problems that are caused by misalignment and other dental problems, orthodontics can help you.
Whether you’re an adult or a child, you can always explore your orthodontic treatment options. If you are a parent, your child’s health, including their oral health is very important to you. Visiting an orthodontist early on can help ensure your child's oral care is healthy.
Initially, having braces may take some time to adjust to the new lifestyle. Soreness, discomfort, mild pain and swelling are some common symptoms that can occur when teeth begin moving into their new positions. However, in some cases, a braces emergency can happen.
