Orthodontics or better known as braces are used to correct malpositioned teeth and improve occlusion, or how your upper and lower teeth function together. Prairie Run Dental is proud to offer the best and most up-to-date orthodontic services for our patients.
We provide traditional orthodontics and MTM orthodontics for more minor changes in alignment.
While many people consider orthodontics to be just an aesthetic procedure, that is not the case. Teeth that are malpositioned or do not line up efficiently are the perfect place for food and bacteria to hide. They can also be harder to clean, leading to cavities and gum disease down the line. Teeth that are aligned poorly can also cause unnecessary wear over time as well as jaw problems. Orthodontics can improve eating and speech as well. The goal of Orthodontics is to ensure a healthy mouth for a lifetime.
This procedure is not only for school-age children. Orthodontics can be a huge benefit for adults as well.
