Are you aware that braces can improve your alignment and oral health? Having an aligned smile can be beneficial to your oral health for years to come. To help you understand more, our orthodontist, Dr. Joseph P. Goodson, is happy to talk to you about what braces can do for you.

Braces are an amazing orthodontic treatment used to reposition the teeth and jaw in your smile. Even if your teeth are in proper alignment, but your upper and lower jaw are not, you could be in for some jaw pain and problems ahead. As a result, having straight teeth and ideal jaw alignment is important for your health in the long run.

It is also true that braces help lower the chance of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. When your teeth are unusually crooked, they are more likely to store tooth decay and bacteria, making it hard to clean your teeth with a traditional toothbrush or dental floss. Luckily, there are various kinds of braces. Variations in braces include ceramic braces, traditional metal braces, and even clear aligners. Depending on your specific needs, your orthodontist will help you decide on which option is best for you.
