Benefits of orthodontics
Orthodontics’ main aim is to improve overall oral health and to achieve balance and harmony between the teeth and face. A good smile enhances self-esteem and may improve your quality of life.
Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush which will decrease decay and will help prevent diseases of the gum & supporting bone from developing. Orthodontics also attempts to distribute the bite force and chewing stress more evenly throughout the mouth, minimising excessive stress on the teeth, bone, roots, gum tissues and temporo-mandibular joints.
