Orthodontic appliances correct misaligned teeth, molars and jaws. Teeth and molars that are crooked or misaligned are difficult to keep clean, are often lost prematurely due to tooth decay and gum disease, and cause extra strain on the chewing muscles, which can lead to headaches, jaw joint pain and pain in the neck, shoulders or back. Crooked or misaligned teeth also give a less attractive appearance.

The benefits of orthodontic treatment are a healthier mouth, a more pleasant appearance and a longer life of teeth.
