Everyone wants to have a straight, beautiful smile. Unfortunately, most people do not naturally have one. Overcrowded, gapped, or rotated teeth can cause you to feel insecure about the appearance of your teeth, while an improper bite can also decrease your quality of life as temporomandibular disorders can develop. When the joint that connects the jaw to the skull functions incorrectly, it can lead to pain and other complications. To resolve these issues and to revamp your confidence, you may be tempted to visit your dentist for braces; however, is that the best option? When it comes to aligning your teeth and bite, your orthodontist in Newark, OH will look at your smile differently to provide you with the results you want.
