When your teeth or jaw do not fit together properly, orthodontic treatment may be necessary in order to improve the alignment and function of your bite. Braces or Invisalign® clear aligners not only straighten your teeth, but can also improve your bite.
A poor bite can cause TMJ discomfort, social anxiety, speech difficulties, premature wear of the teeth and enamel, and increase the chance of injury to teeth and jaw joints if left untreated. Once treated, a properly aligned bite will greatly improve your health and increase your self-confidence to enjoy life more.
