When your teeth are overlapped, it becomes difficult to clean them properly, increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
The outer harder layer of teeth known as enamel, acts as a protector against tooth decay. Your enamel is worn down when your teeth and jaws are misaligned, which causes additional stress on gums and jawbones. Eventually, this creates a headache, sore jaw joint, and lead to migraines.

Skeletal anchorage comprises titanium anchor screws and plates that are surgically placed in the bone and used in coordination with traditional braces. These temporary anchorage devices provide stable anchorage while preventing tooth movement. Dr. Tran may use this technique in particularly complex cases.
