Orthodontic treatment helps ensure the proper function of teeth to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Proper jaw alignment makes it easier for you to bite, chew, and speak. Teeth that are misaligned are harder to clean and can lead to abnormal wear of enamel which can lead to extensive and expensive dental procedures.
When the teeth and jaw are out of line, it can put a strain on your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This is amplified when clenching is involved and can lead to tension in your neck and shoulders.
Overall, orthodontic care helps in three main areas. First, orthodontic care creates healthy balanced bites that lead to tooth longevity. Second, a balanced bite leads to healthy joint function. Third, orthodontic care creates beautiful smiles that lead to positive life changes and increased confidence.
