Braces can certainly give you a straight, beautiful smile. Did you know that they may also improve your oral health? If you want to explore braces in Fayetteville, AR, and want an experienced dentist to provide treatment, Dr. Scott Stephens is accepting new patients and providing them with excellent results using orthodontics.

Cosmetic Benefits of Braces

A beautiful smile can open doors and melt hearts! If your smile isn’t quite what you would like it to be and you have overlapping, misplaced, or crowded teeth, orthodontics can help you achieve a smile where your teeth all stay in line!

  • Uniform appearance
  • Straight and aligned
  • Relocating teeth
  • Closing gaps in your smile

Having a properly aligned smile can add confidence and improve your self-esteem. You don’t have to suffer with a misaligned bite thanks to the effectiveness of modern braces.

Health Benefits of Orthodontics

Having a properly aligned bite is healthy. If your teeth do not come together correctly, your bite can suffer and you may end up with uneven wear, sensitivity, broken teeth, and even tooth loss.

Misaligned teeth are difficult to restore. Placing fillings, crowns, veneers, or bridges on crooked teeth is often difficult and may not provide the best results.

Long-term malocclusion (bad bite) can even lead to serious jaw problems that result in clicking, popping, locking, and permanent damage to your jaw joints. This can make eating and speaking difficult and sometimes requires surgery. When we plan your orthodontic treatment, we will ensure that your teeth come together correctly for greater comfort.

Properly aligned teeth are also easier to keep clean and free from decay. Overlapping or crowded teeth are more prone to dental decay, periodontal disease, and tooth loss.
