How Does Getting Braces Straighten Your Teeth?
All orthodontic treatment works by applying pressure to straighten your teeth. The main difference between orthodontic treatment options is if the appliance uses brackets and wires or clear aligners to move the teeth.
Benefits of Getting Braces
While most people know that orthodontic treatment can boost your appearance, many do not understand how much orthodontic treatment can improve your health.
Misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean because they are not uniform. This means that food and other objects can become lodged in your teeth, leading to the harmful accumulation of plaque. Plaque build-up increases your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and other serious issues.
As you can see, the benefits of braces run far beyond aesthetic concerns. Other benefits of braces include:
- Reduced risk of traumatic oral injuries
- Better speech enunciation
- Improvement of TMJ pain/less risk of developing TMJ pain
- Potential to save money on future dental needs
- And more
Whatever your reason for seeking orthodontic treatment, it’s always a good time to start your smile journey!
Types of Braces Available at Dhingra Orthodontics
Clear braces — also known as ceramic braces — use the same tried and true bracket technology as metal braces but feature a clear finish that allows them to virtually disappear into the teeth.
Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces have been in use for over 100 years because they create incredible results. Modern braces feature more comfortable and sleek components that keep up with any busy lifestyle. You can also choose the color of your braces to suit your style.
Who is a Good Candidate For Braces?
It’s always a great time to start orthodontic treatment. While many people associate braces with teenagers, adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment.
