During March Madness people often talk about their brackets and how they're doing. But rarely outside of our office are they talking about the brackets found on teeth! Brackets are a component of braces which aid in straightening teeth.
If you have a bad bite or your teeth are crooked or out of alignment, you may benefit from braces. Braces can help improve your smile and make your teeth straighter. They can also improve your dental health and overall health because untreated orthodontic problems can make it hard to bite and chew and can interfere with eating. If you have a bad bite, you may also be prone to cavities or gum disease because it may be hard to clean your teeth. Braces come in many different styles, including tooth-colored plastic braces or traditional metal braces that come in a variety of colors. Removable clear retainers can sometimes be used.
If you've ever wondered if braces would improve your smile, give us a call and we can help you decide the best option for making your smile everything you'd like it to be!
