We’ll fix your crooked teeth and brighten your smile!
Dental braces, orthodontic braces, or braces as they are called are devices used by orthodontists to straighten and place teeth in their correct position. Braces are used to fix overbites, under-bites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, or crocked teeth. They are also used to correct other defects of the teeth and jaw.
It can be very difficult to keep crowded and crooked teeth clean. When brushing and flossing cannot be done properly then gum disease, tooth decay and loss of teeth can happen.
Improper bite can restrict your ability to speak and chew properly, and can also cause an unusual wear of the teeth enamel. When the lower and upper teeth don’t fit comfortably together and you have protruding teeth you can have jaw problems.
It is very important that your teeth are aligned properly as this will help improve oral hygiene. Dental braces not only give you a bright smile but they also assist in keeping your gums, teeth and oral cavity healthy. Research has shown that periodontal infections which are as a result of poor oral hygiene can lead to cardiac conditions.
Orthodontic treatment becomes necessary when there is malocclusion (bad bite). Malocclusion happens as a result of one or several factors: small mouth, tongue thrusting, extra teeth or not enough teeth, misaligned jaw and bone structure, and poor muscular functional habits (i.e. tongue sucking).
