If you have crooked teeth or teeth that are misaligned causing an overbite or an underbite, there are a number of solutions to help correct it. Braces are one such option that helps straighten your teeth and eliminate any other problems you may have with eating, speech and keeping your teeth clean. With advances in technology, traditional braces are smaller, sleeker and more comfortable. If traditional metal braces are not your thing, there are other options like Invisalign. Your dentist may refer you to an orthodontist who can then explain your options to you.
Braces can help improve your appearance. The teeth structure of a person influences how his/her jawline looks. Braces help align your teeth, giving them better structure, which helps not only to enhance your facial structure but also helps you to bite and chew properly, among other benefits.
