Orthodontics uses dental appliances to straighten or move teeth, correcting their alignment and the way they bite together in order to improve the appearance of your smile. An incorrect bite can lead to long term dental problems and even jaw and head pain. By straightening your teeth, you may help to prevent tooth decay and gum diseases as straighter teeth are easier to clean.
It has been proven that improvements in personal appearance contribute to greater mental and physical well-being. Creating a beautiful smile through orthodontics is a reliable way of improving the health of your teeth as well as your self-esteem. In this way, orthodontic treatment can benefit social and career success, as well as improve one’s general attitude and enjoyment of life.
Orthodontic technology has improved substantially over the past few years and it has never been easier or more comfortable to achieve a straighter smile. Here at Werribee Dental Clinic we are seeing an increasing number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment and provided your teeth are healthy and strong then it’s never too late to straighten.
