Many people think that dental braces only serve cosmetic purposes. However, this is not true; aligning your teeth has several health benefits, such as allowing patients to brush/floss more easily, improved speech patterns, and easier chewing. However, determining whether braces are something that’s going to work for you isn’t a decision you can make on your own. If you have weak, inflamed, or damaged teeth, they can worsen the condition. That’s why it is essential that you see your periodontist before getting braces. If you want to set up a dental appointment with California Dental Care, give us a call at (707) 741-6090 or click here.
