More than straightening your teeth
Orthodontics can be used to straighten your teeth regardless of what age you are. Many people also think that they are a cosmetic procedure, however that is not true! Misaligned teeth can cause issues with your bite that may cause problems years down the road. Some of these problems can include grinding, decreased air flow and difficulty with oral hygiene maintenance.
Orthodontics can be done with either braces of clear aligners. Braces are, for the most part, a place and forget as they are fixed to your teeth. Clear aligners are trays that needs to be removed during meal time and brushing so can be easily misplaced or forgotten. Both can achieve similar results so it’s up to you to decide!
