Orthodontic treatment (braces) is used to correct mal-aligned
teeth and bite problems. The issues involved and corrected
by orthodontic treatments can be considered both restorative
and cosmetic because the procedures often result in both
fully functional and beautiful smiles.
While orthodontic treatments are most commonly used for
young people, adults make up nearly a third of all
orthodontic patients. Even though orthodontics can be used
to treat people of any age, it is generally recommended to
begin treatment early.
Orthodontics is used to protect your bite, maximize the performance of your teeth’s functions, and create well-aligned smiles, making oral hygiene easier to maintain. It can also change the appearance of the jaw, neck, and lips.
