Traditional Orthodontic Braces
Now, more and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment for a variety of reasons. Some people want to improve their smiles or correct their bites. Other people are seeking to improve their health or to boost their self-esteem. Today about one million Americans over the age of 18 wear braces, according to the Academy of General Dentistry.
By having straighter teeth, you not only smile more confidently but also reducing the chance of developing future dental problems. When your teeth are aligned, it becomes easier to clean them which then helps reduce gum disease. There are other benefits as well such as being able to chew food better and speak clearer.
At Smile Works, we understand that everyone's dental needs are different. That's why we offer numerous orthodontic treatment options such as traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, lingual braces, removable appliances, or even partial treatments. We'll work with you to choose the best course of action based on the severity of your bite and degree of misalignment using your final desired results as a guide.
The braces we determine are best for your individual case will improve not only your appearance, but also you ability to bite and chew correctly, as well as boosting your confidence! Not to mention, it will also advance your oral health.
Traditional Braces for a Misaligned Bite
A crossbite, overjet, open bite or any other misalignment issue is called a bad bite. By fixing your teeth with braces, you can also improve your overall oral health which may be impacted by the previous conditions.
It's also possible that your jaws aren't properly aligned, despite the fact that your teeth appear straight. An orthodontist may prescribe treatment to avoid future difficulties such as early tooth loss, greater wear on tooth enamel, speech and chewing issues, and more serious jaw problems in this situation. Jaw or tooth alignment anomalies can be hereditary or caused by an accident, losing baby teeth too soon or too late, or thumb sucking.
The type of orthodontic treatment you'll undergo is based on what your orthodontist recommends and how severe your case is.
