Crowded teeth can be a problem and not just with the look of your smile.
The top five things you need to know about braces are;
Traditional braces may be the best option for your teeth; the orthodontist will make that decision.
Today, with the advancements in dental braces, the standard metal braces are much smaller and far more comfortable than before.
With the traditional braces, they work by putting steady pressure on your teeth to straighten the teeth and align the jaw.
With all the advancements there are now invisible braces such as Invisalign.
These are trays that are clear and worn 20 to 22 hours a day. The tray is custom made to fit your teeth and straighten them. Every couple of weeks you switch to a different tray.
In order to know which type of braces are right for your needs, you need to have a consultation with our orthodontist at Brooklin Village Dental Care.
The orthodontist can evaluate your teeth and bite to determine which type of braces will best suit your needs.
The average treatment time is 18 months to 2 years depending on the type of braces and your dental needs.
Braces can be expensive, so check with your dental insurance to see if they cover braces.
