Braces Can Be Used to Fix Misaligned Smiles

Posted .

There are a number of various kinds of braces, but all work on the same simple principle. They all work by slowly and subtly stretching out the ligaments that hold your teeth in the socket. Over the course of time, this can give you a straight smile.

Common orthodontic issues such as bad alignment or crowding teeth can often be corrected with braces. These issues sometimes happen because the adult teeth replacing the primary teeth come in at different times. If something, such as a childhood extraction, messes with the order of emergence, complications can happen.

A prevalent under or overbite, known as malocclusion, occurs when the upper or lower jaw is aligned unevenly from the other. Not only can this impair the ability to chew food and affect your appearance, but it can also lead to chips and fractures.

The severity of the alignment issue will directly influence the number of adjustment sessions that your orthodontist, Dr. Rosendo Garza, will need to perform to achieve your ideal smile.

If you have alignment issues with your teeth, you should strongly consider calling Golden West Dental Clinic at 909-421-8787 to see how braces in Rialto, California, can improve you smile.
