When teeth are crooked or crowded, it becomes more challenging to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing may not effectively reach all surfaces, increasing the likelihood of plaque build-up, gum disease, and tooth decay. Misaligned jaws can also lead to problems with speech and chewing, causing discomfort and hindering proper nutrition.
Fortunately, orthodontics offers various treatment options to correct these dental issues. The most common orthodontic treatment is braces, which consist of metal or ceramic brackets placed on the teeth, connected by wires and rubber bands. The continuous, gentle pressure exerted by braces helps move the teeth into the desired position over time.
