Are you playing with the idea of trying braces to improve your alignment? If so, you have come to the right place! Our orthodontists, Drs. Burris, Fiegle, and Katie, are trained to assist you with any orthodontic treatment you need and are happy to talk to you about why it is important for your oral health.

Braces are a fantastic orthodontic treatment used to straighten the teeth and jaw in your smile. Even if your teeth are straight, but your upper and lower jaw do not meet properly, you could be in for some jaw pain and problems in the future, which will need to be addressed and cared for. That is why having aligned teeth and ideal jaw alignment is beneficial for your health throughout your life.

Did you know, braces can reduce your risk of gum disease, tooth decay and tooth loss over time? When your teeth are positioned incorrectly, they are more likely to store plaque and bacteria, making it hard to clean them with a toothbrush or dental floss, increasing the risk of cavities. There are several different kinds of braces. Some include traditional metal, ceramics, and clear aligners. Depending on your unique alignment, our orthodontists in Beaufort, South Carolina, will help you decide on which one is best for you.
