Did you know that although malocclusions can drastically affect your smile, they can be treated with orthodontic braces? Malocclusions are bad bites and misalignments with teeth that do require extensive care to slowly straighten your teeth back to an ideal position to ensure your smile can shine brightly for many years to come.

Orthodontic aligners are designed to fit tightly around your teeth and slowly work them back into place. Not only will the aesthetics of your smile benefit, but so will its many functions. Your eating, speaking, and chewing abilities can all benefit greatly from a straighter smile.

A straighter smile is also healthier. When your teeth are out of alignment, there are more nooks and crannies for harmful bacteria and plaque to thrive. Studies have shown that straighter teeth are less likely to suffer from tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, straighter teeth are less likely to rub together and potentially chip or crack. Thus, orthodontic braces can lower the risks caused by bruxism and temporomandibular disorders.
