Why Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight teeth help an individual to effectively bite, chew and speak. Straight teeth contribute to healthy teeth and gums. Properly aligned teeth and jaws may alleviate or prevent physical health problems. Teeth that work better also tend to look better.
An attractive smile is a wonderful asset. It contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image. You may be surprised to learn that straight teeth are less prone to decay, gum disease, and injury. Straight teeth collect less plaque: a colorless film composed of bacteria, food and saliva. Untreated orthodontic problems may become worse, leading to abnormal wear of the teeth, excessive stress on the gum tissue and bone that supports the teeth.
