Affordable Braces – More than Just a Straight Teeth & Great Smile.
Welcome to Affordable Dentist Near Me. We have experienced orthodontists here to help you take care of your misaligned teeth and other craniofacial issues. The most common orthodontic problem is misaligned teeth and it is fixed easily using braces. Children and teenagers are the usual candidates for braces as their teeth often run the risk of growing improperly. Braces help in restoring the crooked teeth back to proper alignment.
Are you a good candidate for braces?
The teeth can grow in various ways, differing from person to person, but generally falls under five major types, namely, over-bite, under-bite, cross-bite, gapped, and crowded teeth.
Over-bite is when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. This can often lead to frequent clenching and grinding which forms cavities and TMJ problems. Under-bite is when the lower teeth bite over the upper, and cross-bite happens when it’s both. These conditions are easily fixed using braces and can help avoid tooth decay, cavities, and TMJ problems in the future.
Gapped teeth are when they are spaced out on the jawbone causing gaps between teeth that allow food particles and bacteria to deposit. Crowded teeth are when there’s a lack of space on the jaw bone and the teeth grow bunched up together in a haphazard manner. These conditions can be severe, but easily treatable with braces.
The Braces Treatment
The dentist will affix metal brackets to your teeth using a special adhesive. Arch wires are then inserted through these brackets and tightened to a certain tension with room for adjustment. The braces treatment can last up to a couple of years depending on the severity of the misalignment. The dentist will prescribe braces for a specific period and will also set you up with appointments during the course of treatment to monitor your progress.
There are different types of braces that you can pick according to what will work for you best. Metal braces are the most common kind. They are the ones you generally see around. Aesthetics come into play in the matter and it may not look very attractive. Lingual braces are affixed to the back of the teeth and while this is cosmetically appealing, they are not used for severely misaligned teeth.
