What Are the Benefits of Braces Treatment?
Having misaligned teeth or bite issues such as an underbite can affect your overall oral health. Overcrowded teeth can be harder to clean, and a misaligned bite can place unnecessary stress on your jaw. Luckily, with the help of braces, you can fix many common dental issues to improve the function and appearance of your smile. Some additional benefits of braces include:
- Increase confidence: If you like your teeth, you’re more likely to show them. Straightening your teeth allows you to smile with confidence.
- Reduce bad breath: Crooked or overcrowded teeth are more difficult to clean, leading to plaque and bacteria buildup. Braces can align your teeth for easier cleaning and fresher breath.
- Prevent tooth injury: Protruding teeth are more vulnerable to injuries during sports or everyday accidents. Realigning these teeth will protect them from damage and improve your smile.
Types of Braces We Offer
Metal braces are the most common form of braces treatment and are popular with patients of all ages. These braces are small in size but effective for faster treatment times. The device’s components bond to your teeth, and it uses a thin wire to move the teeth into position.
Clear Ceramic Braces
Unlike metal braces, the brackets, elastics and archwire in ceramic braces are a clear, tooth-colored material to be more discreet. This braces treatment option is popular with patients who would like to experience the effectiveness of traditional metal braces without altering their daily appearance.
Clear aligners have grown in popularity due to their transparent appearance. These removable devices allow patients to continue eating the foods they enjoy and clean their teeth more efficiently.
