Prevent Damage to Your Braces

January 27, 2017

The braces that your orthodontist, Dr. Roden-Johnson, installed into your mouth are designed to realign your teeth to improve the overall function of your mouth and give you a winning smile. This is done by applying a light amount of tension to the braces, which guides your teeth to their optimal positions. If any part of your braces is damaged, bent or pulled loose, it could potentially increase the amount of time it takes to fully realign your teeth.
