Types of Braces

There are various types of braces to correct alignment problems, such as brackets with wires, aligners, and headgear. Traditional braces have brackets that attach to your teeth and are connected by a wire and rubber bands. The wire gets tightened by your dentist over time and this process slowly aligns your teeth. You can also style your braces with different colored rubber

bands that work to keep the wire in place. Aside from that the other kinds of braces being used include: metal braces, white ceramic braces, and lingual braces that attach behind the teeth.

Aligners are clear removable braces that align your teeth with plastic trays. The plastic trays allow for adjustments that will slowly move your teeth into proper alignment.

Headgear is a much stronger application used to shift your teeth. The wire is shaped like a horseshoe that then attaches to the back of your teeth and allows more pressure and aligns your teeth.

Once the braces are on, it is recommended to visit the dental office every few weeks to make adjustments and monitor the effects.

Short-Term Benefits

Improved Speech

Getting dental braces may be a painful procedure, but it greatly helps improve your speech while you have them. Typically when you need braces your speech can be impaired due to not having your teeth aligned. Dental braces help with adjusting your teeth and positioning them. This, in turn, helps your speech by preventing lisping and allowing you to pronounce words better.

Preventing Gum Disease

When teeth overlap over one another or have gaps in between bacteria can interact with the gums and increase the risk of gum diseases. Dental braces allow your teeth to be adequately spaced, making sure that the bacteria are unable to reach your gums. The teeth also don’t give space to build plaque and tartar, hence improving your digestive health.

Protected Teeth

With dental braces, your teeth remain covered and protected. This protects them from decay, yellowing, or chipping. The braces can act as an outer shield for your teeth.

Long-Term Benefits

Improved Dental Hygiene

The basic purpose of dental braces is to improve oral hygiene. Braces help your teeth come together and be perfectly aligned. This proper placement of your teeth prevents bacteria from reaching the gums, makes it easier to brush in difficult spots, and does not cause unusual stress on jaws and muscles. Straightened teeth overall make it easier to chew and therefore reduces sensitivity. Your orthodontist in Las Vegas assures that you will improve your overall dental health for a long, long time.
