Orthodontia and braces are not only used to fix cosmetic issues, but also the help your jaw function properly.
Braces are commonly used to fix crowded or crooked teeth, which is not only great for a healthy smile, but also is great way to boost a person’s self-esteem. Smiles are one of the first things that a person notices and a straight smile will give someone confidence in their everyday life.
Braces are wires that are connected to your teeth and tightened and loosened in order to straighten them out. There are also a few other types of braces that are different than the conventional type. For example, lingual braces which means that brackets are attached to the back side of the teeth.
