What They Do: A Look at the Best Uses for Braces
Simply put, braces are handles that are placed on the permanent teeth in a specific order. These handles are then used to move the teeth into ideal positions in relation to each other, your face and jaws. Braces can be used as early as 4-5 years of age – depending the type and severity of problem – but are more commonly seen in teenagers and adults.
Generally, braces are recommended to those patients who have severe dental problems that affect the placement of their teeth or the nature of their “bite.” The most common reasons and purposes for braces are as follows:
1. Crooked or Misaligned Teeth
Teeth can become crooked or misaligned for any number of reasons, including the growth of wisdom teeth or simple genetic factors that cause teeth to grow in at non-uniform positions. Braces work to reform this misalignment through years of retraining teeth, pulling or pushing them in a given direction to create a more uniform, more comfortable smile.
2. Overbites and Under-bites
Overbites and under-bites occur when the top and bottom rows of teeth are not properly aligned, causing one to slip under the other. This is a problem that can cause patients to suffer from long-term discomfort and awkward resting positions of the mouth. Braces use the same reformative techniques mentioned earlier to effectively align the teeth with each other, eliminating this problem
Health Benefits: Why Bother with Braces?
Braces can fix teeth that are actually positioned slightly over top of one another, reducing the likelihood of cavities or infection. When used to correct an under-bite or overbite, braces can reduce chronic headaches and teeth grinding, reducing this constant, dull pain and giving patients a life that doesn’t rely on ibuprofen for daily comfort.
Because they promote healthier teeth, less overall pain, and a big improvement to smiles and self-confidence, it’s easy to almost recommend braces based on these benefits alone. Even so, their benefits for teeth include making them stronger, healthier, and able to better withstand everything from regular brushing to the occasional sugary beverage.
One of the best decisions you can make with your orthodontist is to commit to a period of treatment using braces, realigning teeth and leading to a great number of long-term health benefits that will last virtually the rest of your life.
What are the Estimated Financial Costs?
As a rule of thumb, the cost of braces will vary based on the severity of the problem you’re addressing and how long it takes to correct. They may even be much more affordable depending on the type of braces you are using (i.e. metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, etc.)
