What Are Braces & How Do They Work?
Dental braces are used by a licensed orthodontist to correct a variety of dental conditions. Orthodontic care goes beyond just creating a beautiful smile: your orthodontist carefully positions your teeth to ensure the overall health of your teeth and gums. Braces can correct dental misalignments such as gaps, twisted teeth, crowding, and more, but they also help prevent major oral health issues. Without proper orthodontic intervention, using braces or another form of care, serious oral health concerns can result.
The goal of quality orthodontic care is to provide patients with healthy, beautiful smiles, as well as a lifetime of oral health and overall health. Your whole body’s health begins with your mouth, so if your teeth, gums, and bite aren’t healthy, the issues will affect the rest of your health, too.
