Cosmetic and Health Benefits of Teeth Braces
The benefits of braces include cosmetic considerations, as well as improved dental health. Straight teeth are the foundation of a beautiful smile; however, braces affect your appearance in other ways, too. Teeth braces help align your jaw, which also makes you look more attractive. The health benefits of braces cannot be overestimated. Crooked and crowded teeth serve as impediments to brushing and flossing, and lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Teeth that are out of line make it harder to chew, and place undue wear and tear on other teeth.
Wear Braces for Your Teeth for 1–3 Years
It generally takes from one to three years to straighten your teeth with orthodontia. During that time, you will visit the orthodontist once a month to check on progress and to tighten the bands. At the end of that time, we remove the braces and you will see a smile filled with beautiful, straight teeth.
