Word! Alignment

Word! Alignment


(En español: Alineamiento)

Say: uh-line-ment

Alignment means to bring into line. If your teeth aren't straight, their alignment might need a little help. You can get perfect alignment with braces, those little metal wires that move your teeth into place. They're not too bad - just a little uncomfortable at first - and after they're taken off, you'll have a straight and beautiful smile.
