Orthodontics is Also Prevention

Orthodontic procedures can be a significantly cheaper option than the additional care that may be required to treat the dental complications that arise from misaligned teeth. Crooked teeth can cause a host of oral health problems, including:

  • Misalignment of the jaw leading to abnormal wear of the teeth and TMJ
  • Tooth decay and worsening gum disease
  • Aesthetic issues

Orthodontic treatment is not only a solution, it is prevention.

Beautiful, Straight Smiles For Life

Why Should I Choose Braces?

There are many alternative treatments to give you beautiful, straight teeth. The following is why you should consider orthodontics and traditional braces instead:
  • To have the healthiest smile possible.
  • To not only look good but also feel good.
  • To get the specialized care and attention you need.
  • To make sure your bite is aligned correctly.
  • To prevent future shifting of the teeth.

What to Expect from Braces in Fairfield, CT

Braces are a system of brackets, bands, and wires that guide your teeth into their ideal position over time. Brackets may be made of ceramic, metal, or plastic, depending upon your preference. They are bonded onto individual teeth and then connected with wires. With each visit, your braces are tightened to bring your crooked teeth into alignment.

Orthodontics is commonly used to straighten smiles for patients of all ages. While many may associate braces with teenagers, more and more adults are improving their crowded, crooked teeth with orthodontic treatment. Treatment times may vary between 12 to 30 months, depending upon the extent of your condition. Once your braces have been removed, you may need to wear a retainer to maintain the position of your teeth.

Maintaining Your Oral Health during Orthodontic Treatment

Unfortunately, the brackets and wires make it more difficult to clean your teeth and gums but it is critical to keep these areas healthy with diligent performance of proper oral hygiene. There are several products available to help you gain improved access but a commitment to oral health is your best line of defense.

Orthodontic treatment can help patients of all ages achieve the healthy, straight smiles they deserve. For your personalized consultation in Fairfield, CT, contact Demartin Dental Associates today.
