When people in Talbot’s Corner think of dental-braces and their benefits the first benefit that comes to mind deals with how a person’s teeth will end up being straight after a period of time. This is a very good benefit to see. However, there are many more benefits of braces that people might not be aware of.. Here are some of these many benefits that anyone should see when considering these braces.
When dental braces are used it will be easier for the teeth to be protected from gum disease. When one’s teeth are improperly positioned it can be easier for the gums to become weak. This comes from how they will be forced into handling teeth in their wrong habitats. When this happens it can be easier for gum disease to develop. Getting one’s teeth corrected with dental braces can be done to help correct this problem.
Braces For Adults
If you are thinking of getting ceramic dental braces then this will give you a set of braces that can hold your teeth in place so that they grow straighter. These will be inserted into your mouth and attached to your teeth in such a way that your jaw will feel comfortable but your teeth will be slightly pulled into line. Over time this will cause your teeth to move permanently in which case they will then be straightened where perhaps they were un-straight and this can prevent many different problems. At the same time these braces have a lot of benefits over regular braces making them a great option for anyone with un-straight teeth.
The first benefit of ceramic dental braces is of course aesthetic. Ceramic dental braces will be better looking than most braces while you have them in, particularly as the ceramic looks more like teeth requiring only a very thin visible line as opposed to the quite unpleasant appearance of metal tracts that you can get with most braces. From a distance they won't be at all visible. However the real benefit of any braces is how good they are over a long amount of time for your appearance - preventing teeth that overlap or point outwards or inwards at unusual angles. This can then help us to have the appearance of Hollywood smiles or the kinds you'd expect to find on a model rather than teeth that look badly kept.
This can then help you to be more confident and to, as a result, find better jobs and do better in your relationships (and unfortunately studies have shown that we do get better jobs if we are more conventionally attractive). This then means that having the ceramic dental braces will benefit you a lot in later life, for just a few months to a couple of years of having something in your mouth.
The health benefits however are perhaps even more important than the cosmetic ones as they will help to prevent bacteria from building up in your mouth between your teeth where they overlap. This then results in your teeth being much less likely to develop bacteria and plaque helping your immune system, preventing cavities and abscesses and even preventing bad breath - as bad breath is caused by having bacteria in your mouth. The fact that there are fewer bacteria attacking your immune system through your mouth means that you are less likely to develop heart disease and even cancer - as has been demonstrated in several studies.
Other problems that can come from having un-straight teeth can be that you get food stuck in between your teeth which can then become uncomfortable or cause more sugar and decay. In some cases if you have large gaps in your teeth this can also cause your teeth to move more as they push together and move into the gaps. Thus, as you leave your teeth un-straight and with gaps they will tend to get worse over time. The sooner you get ceramic dental braces then the fewer problems you will encounter and the better your teeth will look.
Types of Dental Braces
Invisalign braces are a modern orthodontic treatment that offer an alternative to traditional metal braces. Made of medical grade plastics they are a removable system of sequential aligners that gradually move teeth through pressure.
Invisalign is a fairly new system launched in 1999. Since its initial launch huge developments have been made in the system and the problems that it can treat. Initially, only the simplest of orthodontic corrections could be undertaken with Invisalign, however with the development of attachments; tooth coloured material that is placed upon the teeth to help the aligner to grip, as well as other improvements in the system, many more complex tooth movements can be made.
Another limitation upon the system initially was the lack of experience of Invisalign providers. This is another factor that is now starting to be eliminated as some orthodontists and dentists complete hundreds of Invisalign cases a year and have up to 10 years experience of using the system.
Overbites were one of the complex orthodontic problems that were initially not able to be treated with Invisalign braces. In fact, many less experienced providers are still unwilling to treat patients for overbites with Invisalign. However, amongst the most experienced Invisalign doctors there are a growing band of Elite Providers who are willing to undertake the treatment of overbites using Invisalign braces.
For patients seeking treatment using Invisalign for overbites there are a number of factors that should be considered. Firstly, when considering the selection of doctor, care should be taken that the provider fully understands the orthodontic implications of the treatment to be undertaken. For this reason it may be more appropriate to choose an orthodontist who will be a specialist in tooth movement, rather than a general dentist who may have had very limited training in the area of tooth movement.
It is also important that the most experienced provider possible is selected to ensure optimal treatment outcomes. A list of experienced providers, ranked by experience level can be obtained from the Invisalign website for the patient's country.
In addition to concerns over the treatment provider, the size of the overbite should be considered as well as the gum health of the patient before treatment is undertaken. Smaller overbites are likely to be of shorter treatment duration and to ultimately lead to more successful results.
With all these factors taken into consideration there is no reason why many, although not all, overbites can now be treated with Invisalign braces when offered by an experienced practitioner.
