Reasons for braces


Braces, what for?

Why do I need braces?

Why?Why?

You think your teeth actually look pretty okay? One thing's sure, your orthodontist will only advise you to get braces if your teeth or jaw need treatment to keep them in good alignment and avoid later hassle. Always remember, healthy straight teeth not only look more beautiful, you can also brush them better, which protects them from tooth decay or gum disease.

What do braces do for my teeth?

Wearing braces not only corrects wacky teeth, it also does the same for (often invisible) jaw misalignments. The trouble isn't always in your teeth, it can be your jaw. People with jaw misalignments tend to bite incorrectly, which causes pain and broken teeth somewhere down the line. So, braces not only can give you beautiful and straight teeth, they can also save you from pain and diseased teeth.
