What about my smile can be changed by Orthodontics?
Teeth can be moved in all directions. This enables the Orthodontist to straighten teeth, and move them to the front and back within the face. This helps to increase or decrease lip support, which in turn changes the prominence of the lips and lower part of the face.
Teeth can also be rearranged in order to replace lost teeth, or close spaces in between teeth where a tooth has been lost. There are limitations to the movements that can be attained in the presence of lost teeth, and you should discuss this with your Orthodontist in depth before initiating treatment.
