What Are The Benefits Of Orthodontic Treatment?

Braces not only improve the appearance and aesthetics of your teeth, straight teeth are also much easier to keep clean and cavity-free.

If your bite is uneven it can cause problems with your jaw. Crooked teeth can also make speech a little more difficult, especially in children, and may affect their self confidence. Braces are also used when the spaces between teeth are uneven.

If left untreated, orthodontic problems can develop into bigger problems. Over time it can develop into uneven wear on the teeth, tooth decay and loss of the bone that keeps your teeth in place.

What Orthodontic Options Are Available?

Your dentist will take an x ray of your mouth and inspect the position of your teeth. He or she will discuss the different treatment options that are suitable to treat your case. Most of the options work in the same kind of time frame however metal braces are still the primary go-to option for major correctional work.

Metal braces

Traditional metal braces are still widely used by orthodontists as they produce effective results. Created from a system of brackets and wires, today’s metal braces are less visible than they were a few decades ago.

Ceramic braces
Popular with adults, ceramic braces are tooth coloured or clear and are less noticeable than metal appliances. Because of their light colouring they do need meticulous care so they do not stain.
Invisalign
The Invisalign system includes a series of aligners that are clear. They are custom created to your mouth shape and need to be changed every two weeks. They are most suitable for older teenagers and adults and are often used for minor to moderate corrections.
Lingual braces
Lingual braces are made from metal, but they are placed on the inside of the teeth rather than the outside. While this makes them more discreet it does also make them more difficult to clean. Adjustments can be trickier for your orthodontist and will take a little longer. Some patients find they need to make speech adjustments to avoid speaking with a lisp.

How Long Will You Wear Braces For?

Everybody’s case is different but most treatments average between six months and three years, depending on the complexities. Remember to follow your orthodontist’s or dentist’s advice for the course of treatment, and to make all your adjustments and appointments.

Will You Have To Restrict Your Diet?

For the most part you can continue to eat what you had previously eaten but generally, hard and sticky sugary foods should be avoided. Your orthodontist or dentist will give you some care tips to make the experience more manageable.
