Why Undergo Orthodontic Treatment?
Braces will give you a better and healthier smile by improving the way your teeth look, enhancing your oral hygiene and helping with any bite problems. You will feel more confident about the way you look and your ability to take care of your teeth and gums. One of the most surprising benefits for our patients is when they return to their regular dentist and hear excellent feedback on how well they are taking care of their oral health. For many, this is the first time in their lives that they had good news at the dentist.
Are Braces Right For Me?
Braces are most commonly used for correcting problems amongst children and teenagers, but today’s orthodontists are seeing more adults who want to improve their smiles. Regardless of your age, braces will help with:
- Misalignment, crooked teeth and overcrowding
- Open or closed bite
- Large gaps and spaces between the teeth
- Underbite or overbite
Dr. Kadan will explain what he finds during his examination. He will describe the problems that you may experience without treatment, as well as your options for braces.
Why is Straightening Your Teeth Important?
Gum disease, digestive problems, tooth loss, tooth decay and other health problems have been shown to be caused by improper bite and alignment. By having orthodontic treatment with braces, you are reducing your risk of developing these conditions.
