Frequently asked questions

Does proper tooth alignment have an impact on overall appearance?

Symmetry undoubtedly plays a key role in the aesthetic appreciation of a face. And yet, although often hidden from view, teeth, which are surrounded by soft tissues (lips and cheeks), have their say in the matter: their position has a decisive impact on the overall structure of the face. So, if we change the position of the teeth, we also change the way in which the tissues surrounding them (skin, muscles, lips) bear on them.

However, not all dental adjustments are created equal.

Some are aesthetically significant, while others are not even noticeable. It all depends on the difference between the initial and final position of the teeth.

For example, if the teeth point too far forward, closing the mouth will require effort. As a result, the lips won't be emphasized, and the face will look permanently tense. In this case, repositioning the teeth correctly will make it easier to close the mouth and harmoniously modify your face. In some cases, however, surgery may be necessary to make major changes (jaws, face) and optimize results.

Can increased symmetry and improved oral health make a patient more attractive?

Of course! Let's not forget that an orthodontist is also a smile expert. He must know how to enhance it. Every individual is unique, so it's important to choose the procedure and technique that best suit him or her.

An orthodontist who focuses solely on the dental field would be limiting his field of action. When we look in the mirror, we don't just see the smile, but the whole face. It therefore seems essential for the orthodontist not only to focus on the inside of the mouth, but also to associate the smile with the harmony of the lower part of the face.
