Good Bites

Correcting your bite is as important as having your smile corrected to be straight. Many people think that braces are only used to make teeth simply look straight, when in fact they accomplish a lot more than that. There are several types of malocclusion including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and overcrowding. Each of these alignment problems negatively impacts the functionality and cosmetic appearance of the teeth.

Without a properly aligned bite, you may experience the following problems


You may not be able to eat properly as teeth do not occlude (bite) properly


It may affect your speech if the teeth disrupt your ability to pronounce words


Your teeth may wear down prematurely from the additional pressure in odd areas
