Looking to straighten your teeth? At Okotoks Orthodontics, we offer braces as a treatment option for our patients who are looking to correct teeth misalignment and restore proper form and function to their smiles.
What are braces?
Braces are a combination of brackets and wires that shift your teeth through constant, gentle pressure on your teeth.
Are braces really necessary?
Although some may get braces for purely aesthetic reasons, it is important to understand the health benefits braces can provide. With straighter teeth, an individual can more effectively bite, chew, and even speak.
Properly aligned teeth can also contribute to overall oral health. Straighter teeth are easier to brush, clean, and floss.
The ability to take better care of your teeth through proper oral hygiene helps prevent future cavities and periodontal disease.
