Almost as if a part of a rite of passage, traditional braces have been part of the adolescent memories of many individuals on the planet today. This is because many of us strive to have our teeth properly aligned as they’re able to function better, and their quality of hygiene is greatly increased. However, if genetically, you’re born without teeth that are properly aligned, it’s possible that you’re still able to speak, smile, and chew normally, but stress put on your teeth and jaws can become too much.
In order to make sure that you don’t end up with a premature wearing on your teeth, aligning them with traditional orthodontics can make sure that your teeth appear normal, intrinsically and extrinsically reducing your risk of dental erosion and other functional problems.
Traditional braces produce excellent results for both children and adults alike. They work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth with thin and flexible wire. This wire attached to your teeth with either a metal or ceramic bracket and exerts a light force moving your teeth into a more correct placement.
It is extremely important that you follow the instructions given to you by your dentist when it comes to the care of your braces. In order to make sure that you are receiving the most efficient and effective treatment given to you by traditional braces, you must comply strictly to the recommendations given to you by dental professionals. This can include how you clean your braces, your eating habits, and additional instructions such as how to use rubber bands.
