Why Get Dental Braces?

Braces-663x376

For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. Smiles are a big part of our identity, how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us. In a recent survey, of more than 1,000 Americans (age 18 and over), 72% of the respondents agreed that people of all ages with healthy, straight teeth are typically treated better in social situations than those with noticeably crooked teeth.

Improve your Health

A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:

    Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in better oral health.

    Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which may help digestion.

    Aligned teeth create a better bite, which may reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.

    According to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but may lead to gum disease and tooth loss.

Orthodontic appliances can be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to a corrected position. You can often choose brackets that are clear or metallic, and you can also choose the color of the ties that hold the wire in brackets. Wires are less noticeable than they used to be, and the latest materials move teeth faster with less discomfort to patients. Invisalign® can address many orthodontic issues while offering good results without the look of traditional orthodontic braces, for about the same cost. Dr. Sullivan is an Invisalign preferred provider and has extensive experience allowing him to determine which treatment options will give the best result to each patient.
