An attractive smile projects confidence and leaves a lasting impression on the people you meet. And a set of straight immaculate teeth plays an important role in achieving that smile. Braces, the common name for orthodontic treatment, can help straighten malaligned teeth safely and effectively. Having aligned teeth also improves oral health, allowing for thorough brushing and flossing and reduces the risk of gum disease.
Who can Benefit From Braces?
Braces is the solution for people with:
Crowded or crooked teeth
This makes brushing and flossing teeth difficult and ineffective. Over time, there will be an increased risk of gum disease and cavities.
Widely spaced teeth
Gaps between your teeth could be a result of abnormal jaw bone growth, missing teeth or genetics. If left untreated, it can cause periodontal diseases like gingivitis.
Overbite is a condition where the upper teeth has a notable overlap with lower teeth. Severe cases of overbite may cause gum problems, irritation or wear on the lower teeth.
Underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrudes past the upper teeth and obscures them from sight. It can hinder the normal function of the upper teeth or molars, causing damage.
Braces For Children
Intervene early so that your growing child receives help timely to correct his or her teeth alignment. Removable braces are recommended for children as their teeth development is ongoing and presents relatively minor problems.
Braces for Adults
Adults also have the opportunity to sport a charming smile with straight teeth. Fixed braces is the solution. They are comprised of brackets and bands bonded to your teeth, and thin metal wires which are tied into the brackets. The braces will gradually shift your teeth into their correct positions. You can choose between metal and ceramic brackets – ceramic brackets are less noticeable.
Invisalign is another alternative. They are a series of custom-made clear aligners that gently align your teeth to the optimum positions. Unlike ordinary braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed between meals and brushing and flossing of your teeth. This gives you more freedom to lead an active lifestyle and maintain your oral hygiene. The nearly invisible aligners also mean that you can be yourself and keep smiling, as most people will not notice the aligners.
