Are Braces Right for Me?
Braces are used to correct misaligned teeth, align upper and lower jaws, relieve pressure on jawbone joints and improve the aesthetics of smiles and faces.
While dentist will use braces for children and adults, they are most effective on children. Because children’s jaws and the bone around their teeth haven’t yet set in place, braces can be used to effectively align them.
For adults, braces are only effective at moving the teeth. Since adult facial bones are set in place, they can only be altered with surgery.
Dr Daniel can consult with you or your child to determine whether braces are the right option.
How do Braces Work?
Metal or porcelain brackets are glued to the front of the teeth. An archwire is passed through the brackets. This wire is slowly tightened over time, placing pressure on the teeth and jaws. Gradually, the teeth and jaws are pulled into alignment.
Unlike other alignment systems, like the almost invisible Invisalign system, braces are permanently fixed to the teeth. This means there is no interruption to the treatment and that an even, constant pressure is applied to the teeth. As a result, braces deliver faster and better results than most other alignment treatments like clear aligners.
