Ask Brodsky Orthodontics: Why are straight teeth so important?

97People ask our staff at Brodsky Orthodontics why we work so tirelessly to give our patients straight teeth. Of course it’s great to have a smile full of evenly-aligned teeth, but did you know that straightening your teeth at Lakewood's Brodsky Orthodontics can keep them healthier? Straight teeth lead to better oral hygiene, increasing your chances of keeping your own natural teeth for a lifetime!

Straight teeth are less prone to decay, because they collect less plaque—the sticky colorless substance that forms on our teeth and leads to tooth decay; and they are easier to keep clean! If you’re wondering whether your teeth might cause problems because they are out of alignment, please give us a call at (562) 444-5340 to set up a consultation. Dr. Joel or Charles Brodsky or Dr. Miriam Van Allen can help you decide whether or not you will benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Brodsky Orthodontics has been providing quality orthodontic care in Lakewood and the Greater Long Beach area for more than 30 years.
