Sometimes our teeth are out of place and harmony with our mouth. Orthodontics is the specialty referred to correcting bad tooth and maxillary bone positioning, helping maintain a healthy mouth. Don't forget that a large and healthy smile is the best business card in any circumstance.
What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?
The advantage is that we are guaranteed a healthy mouth, beautiful smile, and teeth have a greater possibility of lasting our entire life. The treatment can last between 12 and 24 months but, since every person is different, a thorough revision by a specialist is necessary to determine the proper treatment plan. The duration also depends on how well the patient is caring for the braces and how punctual she is for all her appointments.
Another advantage is the role of orthodontics in the prevention of gum disease caused by not brushing correctly; digestive problems due to not chewing correctly; assymetric growth in young children due to thumb sucking; and bad breath or halitosis.
