Is orthodontic treatment just for straightening teeth?

A lot of patients ask us why Drs. Kip Homewood, Nishan Fernando, and David Mastroianni and our team at South East Orthodontics work tirelessly to give our patients straight teeth. Of course it’s nice to have a smile full of evenly-aligned teeth, but did you know that straightening your teeth can keep them healthier as well? Straight teeth lead to better oral hygiene, increasing your chances of keeping your own natural teeth for a lifetime!

Straight teeth are also less prone to decay, because they collect less plaque, that sticky colorless substance that forms on our teeth. When you visit South East Orthodontics for your initial consultation, Drs. Kip Homewood, Nishan Fernando, and David Mastroianni will examine all aspects of your teeth, face, smile, and jaw.

If you’re wondering whether your teeth might cause problems because they are out of alignment, please give us a call to set up an initial orthodontic consultation at our convenient Berwick, VIC office. Drs. Kip Homewood, Nishan Fernando, and David Mastroianni can help you decide whether or not you will benefit from orthodontic treatment.
