Braces are an orthodontic treatment used to correct an abnormal bite or straighten misaligned teeth. Traditional metal braces accomplish these tasks by using small brackets that are cemented to your teeth and connected by wires. With each visit to your orthodontist, they will check the progress of your teeth and then tighten the wire accordingly to gradually shift the alignment of your teeth and jaw until they are properly in place. Without correction, crooked teeth or an abnormal bite can lead to various dental health issues.

Common problems associated with an uncorrected abnormal bite or crooked teeth:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Tooth Loss
  • Gum Disease
  • Jaw Problems
  • Adverse Wear to Tooth Enamel
