What are the benefits of braces?
Braces are a popular orthodontic treatment that is commonly used to straighten your teeth and improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile. However, there are also other important ways braces can improve your dental health throughout your life.
Straighter teeth are easier to clean and prevent food and bacterial buildup. This in turn reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and will set you up for a lifetime of good dental health.
When are braces used?
Braces are used to correct a range of orthodontic issues. This can include gaps between your teeth caused by abnormal jawbone growth, along with the correction of overbites, underbites, open bites and crossbites.
Braces are also used to treat overlapping teeth that have become crowded in your mouth due to insufficient space in your jaw.
