One of the key principles of a perfect smile includes providing the necessary oral health care in the event that bad bites are present. If for any reason your teeth are out of alignment it can lead to several oral health risks. Thus, an orthodontic treatment such as braces will be needed to straighten teeth.

In order to improve your oral health care, it is important to make sure your teeth are safe. Not only can braces provide healthier teeth and gums, but it can also improve your self-esteem. In situations where your teeth are out of alignment, it may be possible for plaque buildup and other debris to linger in the spaces trapped between teeth. Furthermore, your teeth can rub against each other and slowly wear away the tooth enamel. This is known as bruxism and is often more common in individuals with misaligned teeth.

If you have any jaw misalignments or TMJ disorders, you will be at an increased risk for dental damage. Through the use of an orthodontic treatment such as braces, you can help correct any rotation issues or misalignments in your jaw. Braces also highly effective for self-esteem improvements because they can improve your self-image.
