Braces are an invaluable tool in giving you a straight smile that you’ll be proud to share with the world. What few people know is that having a straight smile is far more than cosmetic; it allows your teeth and jaws to function normally. Straight teeth certainly look appealing, but they also:
- Correct overcrowding, which often results in tooth decay
- Correct misaligned bites, making speaking and chewing much easier
- Correct breathing abnormalities
- Prevent and eliminate jaw pain
Braces utilize brackets (that are permanently affixed to the teeth), wires, and bands that gradually guide the teeth into the desired position. Braces can correct a number of alignment problems, giving patients beautiful smiles and a healthy bite.
