Orthodontic treatment provides more than just a beautiful smile. The correct alignment of your teeth and a proper bite are key for lifelong oral health. Properly aligned teeth will allow you to floss and brush with ease, reducing the risk of developing cavities or gum disease.
With new developments in orthodontic technology, braces do not have to be the large metal devices your parents used to have. Brackets today are smaller, treatment time is significantly shorter and the orthodontic appliances are more efficient. There are also more options for those concerned with the aesthetic of braces—such as adults—which include clear or ceramic braces.
