Understanding braces

Understanding braces

Orthodontic treatment not only straightens teeth, it can correct a misaligned bite (an overbite, underbite, or open bite) and widen a narrow arch to make room for crowded teeth. Straighter teeth allow you to brush and floss effectively, which helps ensure good dental health. A properly aligned bite allows you to chew and speak properly and prevents problems with your jaw. 

At Torque Orthodontics, we offer a variety of braces, including:

Partial braces

Sometimes treatment for isolated orthodontic issues, such as tooth crowding or spacing, can be treated with partial braces, braces that are placed on only some of the teeth. Treatment time tends to be less than with full braces.
