Who doesn’t want to have straighter teeth? Unfortunately, not everyone is born with perfectly aligned teeth. Misaligned teeth are not only less attractive; they can also cause an array of dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Orthodontic braces address issues related to malocclusions (misaligned bite) while preventing the development of dental problems. The treatment prevents tooth wear and helps you chew better. Not to mention, it makes your smile look more beautiful.
Types of Dental Braces
There are different types of orthodontic braces and your dentist at A Supa Smile can determine which one is best for your case.
Good candidates for removable braces are patients with minor to moderate bite issues. Removable braces are composed of a plastic plates and wires. They can be easily removed for eating or cleaning your teeth.
Removable braces let you straighten your teeth without the need to wear a fixed orthodontic appliance. Here are the benefits of removable braces:
- Shorter duration of treatment
- Reduction of the risk of dental issues that can occur during the treatment
- The dental appliance is relatively discreet
- Removable for important personal and professional events.
Fixed metal braces are referred to as traditional braces. They are made of metallic wires and brackets, which are tightened to give you the straighter teeth you’ve always wanted. Fixed braces work by exerting pressure onto your teeth in order to move them into their proper position.
Fixed braces have also improved over time, making them appropriate for patients of all ages. Here are some benefits of modern fixed braces:
- Smaller brackets
- More comfortable to wear
- Effective bracket and arch wire system
- Ideal for both moderate and major orthodontic cases
- Great results
