Whilst aesthetics are an important factor to the majority of patients, the physiological and oral health needs are also of paramount importance to ABC Orthodontics. We believe in a holistic approach, resulting in both optimum function and appearance.
Orthodontic treatment aligns the teeth and jaws to improve your oral health and the cosmetic appearance of your teeth and face. Braces and other such appliances are what we employ to achieve this goal.
There are many benefits of having healthy teeth and correcting jaw alignment. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss.
Alignment problems can contribute to the abnormal wear of a tooth's surface, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints. These can lead to chronic headaches and face or neck pain. Treatment can help prevent these dental problems from occurring.
Of course, the most obvious benefit of orthodontic treatment is an improved appearance. No matter what your age, you'll feel more attractive and confident with an aligned, beautiful smile.
