Braces contribute to improved oral health.

When spacing is improved teeth are easier to clean helping to promote better oral hygiene, healthier gums, and reduce risk of periodontal disease and cavities. Braces can also diminish the risk of bone loss that can lead to jawbone erosion.

Improved speech
