Dental Braces Enhance Smiles in Whitby

If your teeth are crooked dental braces Whitby can enhance your smile. There are different forms of braces that can be used including invisible braces such as Invisalign.

How braces work

Braces work by applying a small amount of constant pressure on your teeth to move one way or the other. Over time this pressure moves the teeth into the correct position leaving you with a beautiful smile. The length of time braces remain on your teeth will depend on how crooked your teeth are.

Which type of dental braces are right for me

Only your Whitby dentist can tell you which form of braces is the right ones for you. It will depend on how crooked your teeth are or if your bite needs to be addressed, and other factors.

Types of braces

Traditional braces are much smaller than they used to be; these are adhered to the tooth with resin and adjusted with wires and bands. They can be painful and cause injury to the inside of your lips, tongue, and cheeks. Some of these can be adhered to the back of the teeth as opposed to the front. Since they have become smaller they are more comfortable than they used to be and less noticeable.

Invisible braces are clear trays made specifically for your mouth that you wear a minimum of 22 hours a day. One of the advantages of these is that you can take them out to eat and while doing your usual daily oral hygiene; this reduces any tooth decay from food being caught in the braces next to your teeth and gums. When most people think of invisible braces, Invisalign comes instantly to mind.

Brooklin Dental Care has all types of braces and our dentists can determine which one will work best for your needs when it comes to straightening your teeth.
