Why orthodontic treatment is necessary??
Teeth and jaws that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean through brushing and flossing.Correcting the bite(how upper and lower teeth fit together)reduces improper forces placed on the teeth and improves your ability to bite and chew also improving the odds of keeping your teeth long term.
