Braces can ofcourse give beautiful smiles. In addition to that, long term data from American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) shows that untreated improper bites can result in a variety of problems:
- Crooked teeth are difficult to clean and maintain proper hygiene; failure to do so can cause cavities & gum diseases.
- Protruding teeth (commonly called overbites) are more susceptible to chipping, fractures and teeth loss as well!
- Crossbites (commonly called underbites) can result in unfavorable growth, uneven tooth wear and can require complicated extractions/surgeries if not addressed sooner than later.
- Open bites can result in speech abnormality issues.
