Braces are used to accurate crowded or crooked teeth (malocclusion) or bad bites. In many cases, teeth are straight but the upper and lower jaws are not meet properly and make worse teeth alignment. Braces are the good solution for accurate these kind of teeth problems. Generally, these kinds of problems are occurring because of an injury, thumb sucking, and early or late tooth loss or by inheritance.
Braces are recommended to correct an abnormal bite and to straighten out the person’s smile. The treatment provides a healthier mouth and a nice looking smile. There are several problems associated with abnormal bite. They are
- Gum disease
- Tooth loss
- Tooth decay
- Jaw problems
- Affected speech
- Problem in chewing
- Abnormal wear to tooth enamel
Braces realign the teeth by putting continues pressure. Braces generally comprise of small brackets that are cemented to the patient’s teeth and connected by a wire. The wire can be tightened by the dentist to shift the teeth and jaw, periodically.
The color of the braces is similar to the tooth and can be of metal. The braces provide a constant, gentle force to the tooth and require only few adjustments. The treatment is recommended in the growing age of the child as abnormal bites are visible from the age of 7-8. The treatment plan is purely based on the patient’s situation and can take one to three years.
It is also very important to maintain a balanced diet for healthy teeth. While having braces, it is recommended to avoid sugary foods, chewing gum, popcorns, sticky food and oily food as these can develop a plaque around the brackets and could forever damage or stain the teeth. A good oral hygiene and little awareness to keep teeth align can makes a healthy and beautiful smile.
