Should You Get Braces?

There are two main reasons to consider orthodontic treatment.

1-To improve the esthetics of you smile.
2-To improve the function of your bite.
Orthodontic treatment can correct, crooked, crowded and rotated teeth. As well as overbites, underbites and TMJ/TMD (jaw issues).

Are there any other benefits to getting braces? Yes, having better aligned teeth can help prevent decay, gum disease and bone loss. You will have less plaque and food trapped between and around teeth, allowing you to easily maintain optimal oral care with regular brushing and flossing. In addition, once your teeth are better aligned in to a functional comfortable bite the risk of irregular enamel wear and TMJ (jaw) pain are dramatically decreased.

Are there other health benefits to orthodontic treatment? Yes, many patients that undergo orthodontic treatment to correct a misaligned bite experience a decrease in headache and earaches. If you are unable to adequately chew your food due to a misaligned bite you may suffer gastrointestinal issues as well.
