Did you know there is a link between your oral health and orthodontic treatments? People with poor alignment in their teeth and jaw can suffer from serious oral health problems. That is why our orthodontist, Dr. Ben Frandsen with Frandsen Orthodontics in Orem, Utah, is happy to talk to you about your reasons for choosing orthodontic treatments.

Braces are a popular orthodontic method used to adjust your teeth and the position of your jaw. Even if your teeth are straight, but your upper and lower jaw do not meet correctly, you could be in for some jaw pain and oral health problems down the road of time. That is why having straight teeth and an ideal jaw alignment can be valuable for your health in the long run.

Braces are known to reduce your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss and even bone loss from gum disease. When your teeth are crooked or not aligned properly, they are more likely to hold plaque and bacteria on your teeth. There are many different styles or types of orthodontic treatments. Some braces include ceramics, traditional metal and clear aligners. Depending on your distinct needs, your orthodontist will help you choose one is best for you.
