Braces or other orthodontic treatments to straighten teeth are recommended if you present an abnormal bite. If an abnormal bite is not corrected, further oral health problems could arise, including cavities, gum disease, tooth loss, abnormal wear of enamel and jaw problems.
There are different ways to straighten your teeth. We will provide different options based on the severity of your bite. Traditional braces usually consist of small brackets cemented to your teeth and connected by a wire which is periodically tightened by your dentist. The brackets may be metal or tooth colored. Removable aligners (clear aligners) are another option.
Orthodontic problems can range from a severely misaligned bite to strictly cosmetic issues.
– Gain a more attractive smile with straight teeth
– Find it easier to brush and floss your teeth
– Lessen your risk of cavities and gum disease
– Avoid uneven wear on teeth that is caused by a misaligned bite
The best way to determine which orthodontic treatment is right for you is with a consultation.
