Your dentist may have discussed with you the benefits of having healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss. Other orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints. These can lead to chronic headaches and face or neck pain. Treatment by an orthodontist can be less costly than the additional care required to treat dental problems arising as a result of orthodontic problems. For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. After your braces come off, you'll feel more self-confident.
How braces move yout teeth
How your teeth move depends on how pressure is put on the archwires,springs,and elastics.we use archwires made of new,space-age materials.these archwires may not need to be adjusted very often.your teeth feel sore or a little loose right after an adjustment.that’s because the teeth are moving in the bone.the soreness will go away as your jaw adjuste.you may want to eat soft foods at first.when pressure is put on your teeth,the jawbone surrounding your teeth also changes shape.old bone dissolves,and new bone grows in to support the teeth in their new place.
Duration of braces
Treatment time typically ranges from one to three years, depending on the growth of the patient's mouth, face and the severity of the problem.. The patient's diligent use of any prescribed elastics or headgear is an important factor in achieving the most efficient treatment time. Interceptive, or early treatment procedures, may take as few as seven months.
