What can braces do for me?
- Health – Crooked teeth are harder to clean. This can make the gum tissue more susceptible to disease and the teeth more prone to decay. Straight teeth are definitely healthier teeth.
- Function – Teeth that are crowded, protruded or misaligned do not usually function ideally. This can result in excessive tooth wear and sensitive teeth.
- Stability – Teeth and jaws that are well aligned can be stabilized to reduce undesirable shifting.
- Aesthetics – Appearance is our most popular reason for orthodontic treatment. An attractive smile enhances self esteem and self confidence which can make a positive difference at school, at work and in the community. Boosting self confidence will give you and your child smile power.
