Trainer braces

Braces are still the most effective way of straightening teeth; however, they do not address many of the problems causing the crooked teeth. Most orthodontic problems, particularly crowded teeth and an under developed lower jaw, are caused by habits such as mouth breathing and tongue thrusting. If these habits are not corrected, treatment time in retainers will be increased and once they are removed the teeth can crowd up again (know as relapse). Relapse can occur even with the best retainers.
