Healthy Bites & Beautiful Smiles
For many people, the main reason they think about orthodontic treatment is to have a beautiful smile.
While that, by itself, is a good reason to use braces or Invisalign, many are surprised to learn that cosmetic improvement might actually be the second most important motivation to have orthodontic treatment.
The most essential motive may be achieving proper bite alignment.
If your teeth and bite are not aligned properly, you can have a range of issues later, including premature wearing of teeth, jaw problems, even gum and bone loss.
This is why children, teens, and adults all benefit from orthodontics.
Make your treatment decision based on your long-term oral health as well as the cosmetic appearance of your teeth. Choose a practice with specialist experience.
You will not only gain an attractive smile, you will get one that lasts for a lifetime.
