What Braces Do
At minimum, braces straighten teeth and create a nicer smile.
Braces also prevent future dental problems. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss.
Misaligned teeth can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, 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.
By treating misaligned teeth with braces it can be less costly than the additional care required to treat dental problems that result from orthodontic problems.
Dr. Beth uses the Roth Williams approach to orthodontics, which fully addresses all functional issues of the teeth and jaw during treatment.
When Dr. Beth applies braces, you'll get a lot more than beautiful straight teeth! You'll get a healthier, better functioning mouth.
