Are you hearing more clicking and popping from your jaw joints? Do you find it hard to yawn in the morning without enduring shooting pain? Jaw joint discomfort can be debilitating and be triggered by a host of factors – one of which is a bad bite.
Braces in Grande Prairie
At Ortho 101 in Grande Prairie, we offer braces as a treatment option for our patients who are looking to straighten their teeth and restore proper form and function to their smile.
What are braces?
Braces are a combination of brackets and wires that gradually shift your teeth into place by applying a constant, gentle pressure on the teeth.
Are braces really necessary?
Although you may be considering braces for aesthetic reasons, it is important to understand the health benefits associated with braces. Straight teeth can help you effectively bite, chew, and even speak.
Properly aligned teeth can also help contribute to overall oral health, as they can be 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.
Do I need braces?
You may require braces if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Misaligned Teeth
- Crowded Teeth
- Open Bite
