The Benefit of Braces

Braces are a corrective treatment option for overcrowded or crooked teeth. Braces are a wonderful solution if you are wanting to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Did you know that in addition to giving you a confident, dazzling smile braces can also improve your overall oral health?

Improved Digestion
Chewing your food is one of the first steps in the digestion process. Our teeth mash and grind food particles into smaller pieces to make it easier for the digestion process to work more efficiently.

Braces close gaps and spaces between the teeth. When our teeth are properly aligned and spaced, we are able to break up food more thoroughly before the food particles pass to next step in the digestion process.


Reduced Risk of Chipping and Grinding Teeth
If left unaddressed, persistent grinding of teeth can cause teeth to chip or become loose. By moving teeth into their proper alignment, braces can be a treatment option for the prevention of grinding and chipping of teeth.

Easier Oral Health Maintenance
Straighter teeth can also help you improve your ability to maintain oral health through brushing and flossing. Regular brushing and flossing can lead to a decreased risk of developing cavities and periodontal disease.

Our team will be able to review your case to determine if braces are the right treatment option for you. Contact us today to schedule and appointment.
