The field of orthodontics involves the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of problems associated with the jaw, face, and bite functions.
In the past, wire braces and metal brackets were the main methods of aligning teeth, however, there are more modern alternatives involving removable, transparent devices.
Properly aligned teeth not only have obvious aesthetic benefits but can prevent jaw and mouth problems from occurring in the future.
In addition, your teeth will be less susceptible to wear and chipping, and easier to clean, resulting in less chance of periodontal disease. Also, correctly aligned teeth can help you chew food more effectively.
Whether you decide on metal braces or transparent appliances, such as Invisalign®, you will be doing your smile, mouth, and jaw a big favor by properly aligning your teeth.
