Orthodontic Treatment with Braces
One of the most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry is the practice of orthodontics, also known as “braces”.
Although some of us are born with perfectly straight teeth, many people aren’t so fortunate.
Dental braces straighten teeth because they perform two very important functions;
- They remain in place for an extended period of time and exert constant, steady pressure, and
- Braces help teeth ease slowly into the proper position with optimal spacing over a gradual period of time.
- This combination allows braces to successfully change the arrangement and alignment of teeth in a patient’s mouth.
The type of braces you need will depend on a number of factors which your dentist can discuss with you. Your age plays a big role in this decision, as will your current oral health and your lifestyle.
