Orthodontics is a beneficial process that enhances your appearance and improves the overall health of your teeth. While they can elevate your self-esteem, braces address many of the issues associated with a poor fit of the teeth. This can include crowding of the teeth, misalignment of the jaws, abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, and excessive stress of gum tissue and the bone that support the teeth. Additionally, because excessively crowded teeth can be difficult to clean, braces can help avoid tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontics offers a beautiful smile while achieving so much more!
