Most 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.

You take great pride in ensuring the health of your teeth and gums lasts a lifetime. You brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist every six months; however, you may be overlooking one vital aspect. If you participate in sports and do not use a mouthguard, you are placing your teeth at risk. It is estimated that 20,000 oral injuries in the United States are prevented each year due to their use. While many often believe they are only for children, everyone should wear one if they play sports or partake in a physical activity that could cause damage to the teeth. Dr. Alex Colalillo offers mouthguards in Mullica Hill to protect your beautiful smile.
