Getting braces has become something of a right of passage in modern society. Patients undergo orthodontic treatment with traditional braces for a variety of reasons including crooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, and incorrect jaw positioning. If left untreated, these problems can result in tooth decay, gum disease, headaches and earaches, as well as speaking, biting or chewing problems.
Straightening out your smile isn’t just a cosmetic change – it makes it easier to keep your pearly whites clean and cavity-free, allowing you to keep your natural teeth late into life. Patients with straightened smiles also get a little boost in life because every time they grin, they can do it with confidence.
