Braces It Before It Breaks at Del Mar Highlands Dentistry Office

Orthodontics is a dental specialty, which implies certain dental practitioners received advanced training to become a specialist in this area. Likely the most well-known of the dental specialists, orthodontists have been particularly prepared, trained and certified to treat malocclusion or bad bite. Braces are a typical and effective technology orthodontist uses for correcting a bad bite and fixing a smile.

What are braces?

Braces are brackets that join to your teeth, with curved wires that interface the brackets. This equipment applies a tender pressure on teeth that gradually pushes them in the right direction to straighten the smile. This fixing works over a time of months and requires a series of adjustment along the way.

Braces aren’t only for children.

If you’d wish your teeth to be straighter, regardless of your age, you ought to contact your dental specialist or orthodontist about getting braces. A few treatments work better when you are younger, so the American Association of Orthodontists suggests that you have your children assessed by the age of seven. Adults can get likewise great results from braces; however, your orthodontist may utilize distinctive methods, and the process will regularly take longer.

Ask Del Mar dentist what options are appropriate for straightening your smile.

Teens and adults are often worried about having an ugly and an unattractive “metal-mouth” look. Today’s orthodontics utilizes more up to date technologies which have made the brackets and wires littler and less noticeable. In some cases, your orthodontist can even utilize brackets situated behind the teeth or special transparent and removable appliances that are not really noticeable at all.
