Orthodontist Treatment

Feeling conscious about the irregularities of your teeth? Braces are designed to straighten overcrowded or crooked teeth, in turn restoring the confidence in you to look great and feel great!

Who Should receive Orthodontist Treatment

Braces are recommended for individuals with overcrowded or crooked teeth. Misaligned teeth often create areas of food and stain trap, which can be difficult to clean and maintain. This may potentially lead to tooth decay, gum problems, and early loss of teeth.

While it is recommended to begin orthodontic treatment at an earlier age of 10 to 13 years old, braces are not just for kids. It helps to correct a variety of orthodontic problems that can be faced by all ages. You are never too old for a beautiful smile, so do not let age prevent you from seeking a consultation if you feel that you might need it.

Benefits Of Orthodontist Treatment

Healthier Gums

If you have been suffering from bleeding gums for a prolonged period, it may be due to misalignment in teeth. Misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean and may even cause gum recession, gingivitis (gum inflammation) and gum diseases. Braces help to reduce such problems for a healthier gum and oral health.
