What do braces do?

A lot of people opt for braces as they would like to have a nice smile with even and straight teeth. How ever for health reasons it can also be important to use braces. The braces will make sure your teeth will align. This allows you to bite,chew and speak better. Brushing your teeth will also be easier. This keeps your teeth healthy and in good condition. And straight teeth do look good as well.

Different braces

There are different kinds of braces. There are metal braces for example, which are attached to your teeth. There are also braces you can take off yourself. Sometimes these involve head gear, a band around the back of your head or neck. You might need to wear braces day and night, or only during the night. It all depends on what is needed to get your teeth aligned. All these factors determine what kind of braces are best for you and when you need to wear them. After placing the braces you will need to attend a
check-up roughly once a month with a dentist for orthodontics to check on the progress of your teeth. Once the dentist for orthodontics decides that the treatment is complete, your braces will be removed. It is possible that your teeth might still move after the brace treatment. Therefore a retention brace will be placed in most cases. This prevent your teeth from returning to the position they were prior tot he treatment.
