As a specialist field, orthodontics is concerned with straightening and aligning the teeth and jaws. Treating crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth and jaws helps to improve both the function and appearance of your teeth and the overall structure and wellbeing of your mouth.
Poorly aligned teeth and jaws can dramatically impact your quality of life, affecting speech, breathing and function. Crooked, crowded and misaligned teeth are also harder to clean and maintain which increases your chances of developing tooth decay and gum (periodontal) disease.
Why choose braces?
An aesthetically pleasing smile is the obvious advantage of orthodontic treatment, however, improved function and structure of the teeth and jaws is of most importance in improving oral hygiene, reducing tooth decay & excessive wear.
