Invisalign and Braces: What is Braces Treatment?

Bookmark and Share

Braces or Orthodontics is the process by which misaligned teeth are straightened and corrected. It is normally done in children though more and more adults are also getting their braces done.

Why Braces?

Teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced creates an unsightly smile. It is also difficult to brush and keep clean. Some patients develop unhealthy conditions, including swollen gums, infection, bone loss and decay. Braces straightens your teeth and mouth and can correct your bite.

Advantages of braces include:

  • Healthier Gums
  • Reduced Tooth Decay
  • Improved Chewing and Speech
  • Lower Risk of Trauma and Abnormal Wear
  • Normal Growth and Development
  • Normal Swallowing Patterns
  • Better Jaw Joint Function
  • Reduction of Headaches, Migranes, Oral Facial and Neck Pain

How does it work?

Fine wires attached to tiny brackets that are bonded to the teeth apply gentle pressure and guide the teeth into the right position. Fine elastics are also used to provide additional movement.
