Importance of a Healthy Bite
Whether you’re a child or an adult, a healthy bite is essential for good oral health. When our teeth are not aligned, we may suffer from migraines, TMJ dysfunction, sleep apnea or even body pains. Improper bites can also place stress on our cranial system. Hence, it is important to correct one’s bite as soon as possible. Getting braces is a good way to ensure you have a healthy bite.
Straighter, Beautiful Teeth for Everyone
At Harborn Dental, we provide braces for patients of all ages. Braces aren’t meant only for kids. An improper bite can affect your confidence as well as lead to oral health problems in the later stage of life. Even if you have healthy teeth, your teeth can still shift and lead to crowding. Braces have also improved over the years, becoming less painful. One can even opt for clear aligners.
The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
Early detection and treatment can prevent you or your child from needing costly and time-consuming dental care in the future. You’ll be happy to know that we always look at conservative treatment options first. Early intervention can reduce treatment time for you and your child and provide a stable, healthy bite for a lifetime.

Care for Your Braces
It’s important to care for your braces constantly to ensure you maintain good oral hygiene and don’t damage the braces. Some of the steps to care for your braces include:
Keeping your mouth clean through proper brushing and flossing
Eating softer, healthier food
Avoiding sticky, sugary or brittle food in order to not break or damage the braces
Not missing any dental appointments to readjust the braces
What to Expect
When your braces are first placed, you may find them to be uncomfortable. Your teeth may feel loose and you may experience some sensitivity in your mouth. All of these symptoms are completely normal. If you’re experiencing any pain, please take an analgesic or speak with our dental team.
