Dr. Tracy Li Cheung of Orthodontic Harmony provides progress orthodontic solutions to children, teens and adults. In fact, about one-third of her practice is adults. Although there are obvious cosmetic improvements that come with orthodontic treatment, there are many more additional health benefits, including:
• Improvement of periodontal problems
• Prevention or reduction further bone loss around teeth
• Improvement of the restorative dentist’s ability to restore missing teeth
• Improvement of tooth function
• Improvement of self-confidence and self-esteem
• Improvement of oral health
