Orthodontics

Orthodontics from dentist in Garland Countless teens and adults have misaligned teeth. Serious jaw problems and dental wear can occur when teeth do not fit together properly. In addition, crooked teeth are harder to keep clean, increasing risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Just as important, straight teeth look terrific. Garland, TX dentist, Dr. Sakunthala Boppana, offers several options in orthodontics for appealing smiles.

Common orthodontic concerns

  • "Buck teeth" - Correctly called overbite, this condition is characterized by upper front teeth protruding too far beyond the lower arch.
  • "Bulldog" - An underbite can be caused by lower teeth that are too far forward, or a recessed upper arch.
  • Open bite - This situation occurs when front and/or side teeth do not meet or slightly overlap when back teeth bite together.
  • Crossbite - Upper teeth should sit slightly outside the lower arch when jaws come together. If upper teeth align or come to rest inside lower teeth at the front or on either side, you have crossbite.
  • Misplaced midline - When the line between upper front teeth does not match the center of the lower arch.
  • Gaps - Spaces between teeth.
  • Crowding - The result of too many teeth for the size of the dental ridge.

Do you need orthodontics?

Misalignment may seem obvious when you look in the mirror, but the only way to know for sure if your smile can be improved with orthodontics is to have a thorough dental evaluation. Dr. Boppana considers medical and dental history. She takes x-rays and photographs, and makes a plaster model of your mouth.

With this information, she determines if you are a good candidate for orthodontics, and what type is most appropriate for your needs. Dr. Boppana is trained and experienced in popular Invisalign transparent aligners and Six Month Smiles. She will happily provide referral to a trusted associate specializing in orthodontics for very complex cases.

Your straight new smile begins with a visit to Perfect 32 Family Dentistry in Garland, TX. Call (469) 863-7009 to schedule an orthodontics consultation with Dr. Boppana.
