At Rocke Orthodontics in Littleton, CO, Dr. Paul Rocke transforms patient smiles with orthodontic treatment. If you have crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or gaps in your teeth you've probably considered orthodontic treatment, and we can help with braces!
Braces use a series of brackets cemented to the teeth connected by a thin, flexible wire called an archwire. When this wire is tightened gradually over time it gently shifts your teeth into an aligned position. Keep reading for all the benefits of braces and come see us in Littleton, CO, if you want to transform your smile.
It's natural for teeth to be crooked or have some gaps. Most of us don't have a perfectly straight smile without a little help! But there are benefits to straightening your teeth that will follow you throughout your life. Straight teeth help with chewing and speaking correctly. Straight teeth are also easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing, and thus less likely to decay.
When your teeth are misaligned, your bite patterns may make it more difficult to bite off and chew foods correctly without damaging your teeth more.
Fewer dental problems
Crooked teeth and a bad bite can lead to other dental problems. A bad bite can cause extra stress on your teeth when they grind together and lead to cracks. A healthy bite and straight teeth mean fewer mishaps like this.
Boost of confidence
Straight teeth give you a pretty smile, and it's always nice to make a great impression with your smile. It's one of the first things people notice about you, and braces can help get you to a straight and symmetrical smile!
