An Introduction to Braces

Introduction to Orthodontic Braces

Orthodontic braces, a staple in dentistry, address malocclusion (bad bite) and teeth misalignment. While traditionally recommended for youths, an increasing number of adults are embracing orthodontic solutions. Leveraging advanced technology, braces offer tailored solutions for each individual, crafting stunningly straight smiles.

Common Alignment Issues:

  • Underbite: Lower jaw protrudes beyond the upper jaw.
  • Overbite: Upper jaw extends beyond the lower jaw.
  • Overcrowding: Twisted or misaligned teeth due to limited space.
  • Crossbite: Upper teeth bite inside or outside the lower teeth and vice versa.

Benefits of Braces:

Beyond aesthetics, braces offer numerous advantages:

  • Improved Oral Hygiene: Proper alignment facilitates effective oral care.
  • Enhanced Digestion: Corrected chewing promotes better digestion.
  • Boosted Confidence: Aligned teeth contribute to a positive self-image.

Types of Braces:

  • Fixed Appliances: Ideal for severe malocclusion, these braces entail bonded brackets and archwires, requiring routine adjustments.
  • Removable Appliances: Utilized for less severe cases, these braces, such as Invisalign®, offer versatility, convenience, and discretion.
