Find out How Skipping Braces can Change Your Face Shape

September 6, 2017

Smiling man with braces to improve face shapeMost patients who want to straighten their teeth know that orthodontic treatments will improve the appearance of their smiles. However, fewer people are aware that without orthodontic intervention, their facial shape may be adversely impacted. Patients with untreated alignment issues may notice an uneven jaw line (bone that is higher on one side or the other), chin that juts forward, jaw that tilts in toward the neck, and other serious issues. When this occurs, braces can do more than improve the alignment of your teeth. You can completely transform your face shape.

bracesIf you’re in the midst of orthodontic treatment with traditional braces, then there’s something Dr. Colalillo wants you to know: chances are that at some point your braces will break. Brackets and wires are really quite fragile. So despite your very best efforts to be careful, something may break or become detached. Not to worry. We see it all the time, and Dr. Colalillo and his team are here to help. Of course, if there’s any discomfort from your braces, Collingswood residents should call our office immediately. In the meantime, let’s review some ways to avoid broken braces and how to manage the break until you see Dr. Colalillo.
