Braces in Albuquerque, NM

Dental braces can straighten the teeth or slightly move the misaligned teeth to the correct orthodontic positions. It is one of the orthodontic treatments that can help you improve the appearance of your smile and takes care of your oral structures by equally dividing the biting pressure over all the teeth.

Why Use Dental Braces?

Not all of us are lucky to have flawless smiles. Our teeth may be crooked or crowded. Orthodontic treatments like braces can help us achieve the smile that we desire. They can help straighten the teeth or move them to a better position to enhance the overall smile appearance. 

When the positions of the teeth are uneven, they can meet incorrectly, thus putting a strain on the jawbone muscles and abnormal wear of the tooth enamel. This strain can lead to headaches and jaw pain. Braces treatments can rectify the bite issues and help you bite more evenly by reducing the stress. Additionally, your oral hygiene routine becomes more effortless.

How Do Braces Work?

Dental braces treatment works by putting constant pressure on the teeth. The force of the braces can help reposition the teeth in the jawbone. The alignment process is easy for young people as their jawbone is still developing. However, the modern braces treatment can be equally effective for adults.

At A Better Smile Dentistry, we take pride in offering a wide range of braces using state-of-the-art technology available today.
