Transform And Enhance Your Smile With Braces
Orthodontic braces have been a trusted dental solution for decades, revolutionizing how people achieve straighter and healthier smiles. At Methuen Family Dentistry in Methuen, these devices, composed of metal, ceramic, or clear aligners, work by gradually repositioning misaligned teeth to their desired position.
What are orthodontic braces?
Orthodontic braces are dental appliances designed to correct misalignment issues, such as crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps, or bite irregularities. These braces consist of brackets, wires, and sometimes elastics or aligners, which work in harmony to exert controlled pressure on the teeth, guiding them into proper alignment over time.
How do braces work?
Braces work on the principle of continuous, gentle pressure. The brackets are bonded to the front surface of each tooth, and archwires are threaded through them. The wires are then adjusted periodically by our dentist to guide teeth in the desired direction. Over time, this constant pressure repositions the teeth, correcting misalignments and achieving a harmonious bite.
What are the benefits of braces?
Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Braces can significantly enhance your smile and overall facial appearance by creating an even bite and reducing excessive wear or stress on specific teeth. Braces address bite irregularities, such as overbite, underbite, or crossbite. By aligning the upper and lower jaws correctly, braces promote proper chewing and alleviate strain on the jaw joints, reducing the risk of temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Misaligned teeth can affect speech clarity and pronunciation. Braces help correct dental issues contributing to speech impediments, allowing for better articulation and clearer communication. While the treatment duration may vary, the results are typically permanent.
