Although many of us often associate orthodontic treatment with adolescence, the truth is, anyone with a malocclusion – better known as a “bad bite” – should make sure they get proper orthodontic treatment. Yes, even adults. Despite what some may believe, orthodontic treatment does not just make cosmetic changes. Instead, it provides a solid foundation for overall oral health. At the practice of Victor Pardi, DDS, we emphasize making sure that our patients receive the best care for their needs. Schedule an appointment with us and you’ll be in the care of an Old Greenwich orthodontist who will make sure you get the highest-quality orthodontic treatment you can get.
A malocclusion can come in a variety of forms. Sometimes the upper or lower jaw may be misaligned, sometimes the teeth are crowded or crooked. The reasons for developing a malocclusion vary, from family history, to poor childhood habits like thumb-sucking. Whatever the reason, making sure you get proper treatment is imperative. True, orthodontic treatment improves the quality of your smile, adding to your overall confidence, but perhaps more important, it increases your potential for good oral health. Misaligned or crowded teeth tend to be more difficult to clean than properly aligned teeth, and as such, problems like dental decay or gum disease pose a greater risk. With that said, not every adult patient is going to be excited about the prospect of wearing braces. That’s why our Old Greenwich orthodontist will work with you to offer you the treatment option that will correct your malocclusion but also keep you from feeling too self-conscious. For example, treatment options such as Invisalign can fix a bad bite without drawing any unwanted attention. For years, Dr. Victor Pardi has been providing quality care to his patients, making sure they feel satisfied and comfortable with the orthodontic treatment they receive.
If you are an adult who may be suffering from a malocclusion that needs to be corrected, Old Greenwich orthodontist Dr. Victor Pardi can help. Along with our courteous and dedicated staff, he’ll assess the quality of your occlusion and offer you the best treatment option for your particular needs.
