As strong as your natural tooth enamel is, the integrity of your teeth can still be threatened by alignment problems. Deviations in the alignment of your teeth can cause excess wear and tear on the tooth enamel layer of multiple teeth. This could cause dental attrition that could promote cavities, while also increasing your chances of suffering dental fractures.
Fortunately, Dr. Michael Jacobsen can prevent these problems and improve your smile’s appearance by correcting the alignment of your teeth with traditional braces.
Once the orthodontic hardware has been installed in your mouth, you will occasionally need to return to Dr. Michael Jacobsen’s orthodontic clinic for a routine adjustment. These appointments will tighten your braces to gradually bring your teeth into their ideal position.
After the alignment of your teeth has been fully corrected Dr. Michael Jacobsen will also provide you with a retainer. This will help ensure that your teeth remain in their position for many years without relapse. Using the retainer at the necessary times and maintaining it will help minimize the amount of time you need it.
If you live in the Victorville, California, area and you have uncorrected alignment problems with your teeth, you should call 760-951-7752 to set up a braces consultation appointment with the orthodontic specialists at Jacobsen & Maleeh Orthodontics.
