Smiles are a big part of our identity, how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us. Unfortunately many of us are not born with a set of perfectly straight teeth. We may have crooked or crowded teeth that cause not only tooth decay but may lead to gum disease and tooth loss. Some of us even have misaligned teeth, which not only look wrong, but also just to name a few problems, may be prone to food collection, teeth staining and bleeding gums.
A nice smile is not only beautiful, but also promotes good health, in that:
- Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in better oral health.
- Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which may help digestion.
- Aligned teeth provide a better bite, which may reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.
Braces will allow the repositioning of teeth to align them into an aesthetically pleasing state. By using a series of devices and applications over an extended period of time, braces may just be what you need to get that optimal smile for life!
