Orthodontic treatement with Braces help create a more confident and healthy smile for both children and adults. Braces help moving the teeth into the ideal position. Lets us find if bite correction is right for you.
When are Braces Necessary?
Cleaning crooked and crowded teeth is not easy on dayto day basis. Tooth decay, gum disease and possible tooth loss are common, If brushing and flossing is not done properlly.
An improper bite can interfere with your ability to chew and speak properly, as well as cause abnormal wear to the enamel of your teeth. If your teeth are protruding and/or your upper and lower teeth don’t come together comfortably (called malocclusion, or a bad bite), jaw problems also may arise.
Therefore, by keeping your teeth in the proper alignment and allowing better oral hygiene, braces do more than keep your smile looking good. They also help you keep your teeth, gums and oral cavity healthy. There is now evidence to prove that the periodontal infections resulting from poor oral hygiene can enter the blood stream and cause cardiac conditions.
Invisalign is a series of clear plastic braces that move your teeth into their correct alignment. People who would like to have straighter teeth without having to wear the traditional braces can opt for Invisalign. Invisalign doesn’t involve metal wires and brackets, making them an ideal orthodontic treatment for patients who feel uncomfortable wearing traditional braces.
