Teeth can be crooked, overlapping, or rotated. This can make it hard to clean your teeth, which can lead to cavities or gum disease. It can also place extra strain on your teeth, jaws and muscles.
If your top and bottom teeth don’t line up when you bite down, it can be difficult to chew. A misaligned bite can make you grind your teeth and can cause painful jaw problems down the road.
A straight, healthy smile can improve both your self-image and how others perceive you. Fixing your bite can even change your profile by bringing your jaw into alignment.
Do your homework and have your questions ready to ask during your consultation appointment. Prior to starting treatment, be sure to visit the dentist to have your teeth professionally cleaned. Don't forget to brush and floss!
It will probably take 1 to 2 weeks to adjust to treatment. Your speech may also feel a little clumsy at first – but that goes away quickly! From there, sit back and watch your smile transform!
At the completion of treatment your teeth may feel sensitive as they get used to standing on their own. Continue to brush and floss regularly, and don’t forget to wear your retainers!
