Dental braces are a method orthodontists use to straighten and move your teeth to improve how they work or look. In addition, braces allow you to ensure your oral health in the long term. Moreover, they can make eating more comfortable.
Braces put pressure on your teeth and slowly move them in the right direction. The bones in your jaw will change as the pressure goes into effect, which will let the teeth and their roots move.
If your smile is less than perfect, you may think that you’ve missed your window. After all, most people get braces during childhood or adolescence. However, your age isn’t an essential factor in this case. Many adults have the option of getting orthodontic treatment as well.
What is essential, however, is having healthy teeth and gums. If you have advanced gum disease or if you are missing teeth, you may not be able to get dental braces. Any of our experts at Dental Lounge can determine if you are a valid candidate for dental braces.
