Braces are a method of gently straightening your teeth.
When teeth aren’t crooked and crowded, food and plaque are less likely to get stuck in between them, reducing the chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay, or gum disease.
Straight teeth can prevent unnecessary force on the teeth and supporting bone joints, preventing headaches, facial and jaw pain, such as TMJ.
When your teeth are crooked, your bite isn’t even, and all of your biting force is on the weaker, more vulnerable parts of the teeth. A proper bite with straight teeth will allow you to keep your teeth longer.
With braces, teeth are slowly moved to their ideal position.
The average treatment time is 12 months up to 2-3 years.
