If you have a smile that is slightly crooked or contains a few teeth that are out of alignment, it can throw off your whole smile. Not only can crooked teeth make you less likely to smile, they are also harder to clean and more likely to suffer from oral ailments including tooth decay.

With orthodontic braces, you can improve your self-esteem by improving your smile. A straighter smile is a happier smile and the first step to a more positive self-image. Straighter teeth have also been proven to be easier to clean, as plaque has fewer places and nooks to hide in when brushing and flossing.

Orthodontic braces can help fix your alignment and lower your chances for damage from bruxism and temporomandibular disorders. Teeth with heavy malocclusions are also likely to suffer from chips and cracks due to the grinding and wear they receive when brushing against one another. Braces seek to straighten your smile and keep it healthy for a lifetime.
