Orthodontic dental procedure corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Teeth that do not fit together properly and crooked teeth are harder to keep clean and are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease (gum disease). They can cause extra stress on the chewing muscles which can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Not to mention the fact that crooked teeth can also cause one to feel insecure.So it is a cosmetics procedure too.
The benefits of orthodontic dental procedure include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
