Why are braces used?
One of the most common dental problems in society today is having crooked teeth. When the teeth are not aligned properly it can lead to a weaker bite, making problems while eating more likely to occur.
If you have misaligned teeth you may also find it harder to keep them clean correctly, this can lead to an increase in problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
If your teeth and jaw are in an abnormal position it could lead to the shape of your face appearing to be affected.
Finally, many people with crooked teeth feel self-conscious about their smile, in severe cases, they may try to avoid smiling completely.
Using braces can correct all of the above problems, leading to increased comfort in the areas of the mouth, teeth, and jaw, as well as increased confidence in daily life. Dentists hope that by treating your misaligned teeth they also treat your self-esteem.
