Braces can do a lot to correct a crooked smile and give patients extra confidence, but did you know that orthodontics also affect oral health? Orthodontics can correct issues that cause problems with patient comfort, including fix crooked bites that can chip teeth or cause bone and gum disease.
A common misconception is that braces and orthodontics are just for kids. It is often better to intervene with orthodontics early on while the mouth is still growing, but many patients later in life can also benefit from having braces. Whether you have issues that have been ongoing, or recent changes have caused new issues, orthodontics may be the answer for you.
