Benefits of Braces
On the surface, achieving a beautiful smile is the best part about undergoing orthodontic care. But braces also help to correct teeth alignment problems that could lead to unhealthy teeth and gums later in life. When your teeth have gaps, are crooked or have other alignment issues, this can make it more difficult to maintain proper oral health. Over time, teeth with alignment issues may also develop other serious conditions like gingivitis or periodontal disease. While braces can’t guarantee a lifetime of trouble-free teeth, they do make it easy to practice correct oral health cleaning routines.
At 1500 Dental, we want our patients to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the braces experience. Our finely trained dental professionals are dedicated to ensuring that our patients receive the quality attention and care they deserve.
How Braces Treatment Works
Orthodontic appliances, or braces as they are commonly called, are made from either ceramic, metal or plastic. Braces in Ft Lauderdale may be semi-permanently bonded to the teeth with special brackets, or they may be removable, intended for interim wear.
The action of the braces works by gently positioning teeth into place with a consistent force in a pre-determined, controlled direction. Over a period of time, with the help of the braces, teeth move into proper alignment.
When semi-permanent braces are applied, the patient has the option of choosing clear or metal brackets, which are bonded to each tooth with a special dental adhesive. The wires that connect the teeth are nearly invisible from a distance.
Who Should Get Braces?
Persons of any age can get braces. Anyone who suffers from misaligned teeth may be eligible for braces treatment. And, with the advent of modern braces that are far less noticeable, it’s easy for adults to get braces without embarrassment. In fact, after braces treatment, most adult patients wonder why they didn’t get them sooner!
