The first thing you notice when you meet someone is their smile. An attractive smile not only looks nice, but can play an important role in increasing self-confidence. Orthodontics can help to enhance both your appearance and your confidence by improving your smile.

Misaligned teeth can also have an impact on function and cause problems when you eat or place unusual stresses on your gums and jawbone.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
