Let Braces Improve Your Oral Health.
It's not too late to consider braces, as more and more adults are turning to them to address problems not corrected in childhood. There isn't the stigma around them there once was as the treatment is more than just about improving the way your smile looks, but also your dental health.

Correcting Your Smile
Correcting your smile serves more than aesthetic goals. Crowded, crooked teeth or bites that don't adequately meet are imperfections that take away from your smile, but also carry with them dental health problems that will only worsen if left unattended.
Teeth that are too close to each other can make it very difficult to clean in between them with a brush or floss. Plaque can accumulate in these hard to reach spaces and the bacteria that call it home create acids as they consume the food that gets stuck there. These acids wear away the enamel on your teeth leading to decay.
Bad bites, such as overbites and underbites, can similarly cause the enamel to wear as your teeth rub over each other. But decay isn't the only problem related to bite-related conditions. They can cause temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) and general jaw pain.
But thankfully, braces can address these and other concerns.
