Benefits of Braces (Orthodontic Treatment) 

Braces provide excellent long-term value:

  • Better hygiene. Crooked teeth cause crowding in the mouth, which limits the ability to floss or brush between tight spaces. Aligned teeth allow the brush and floss to work properly.

  • Less risk of periodontitis. Having crowded teeth can make you more prone to problems like gingivitis or periodontitis. With straight teeth and a good hygiene routine, the probability of suffering from these diseases decreases considerably.

  • Improve your self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment allows aesthetic harmony not only of the smile, but of the entire face; The smile is usually a focal point of the face, so having aligned teeth, in balance with your features, can contribute positively to the perception you have of yourself on a physical and emotional level.

  • They can fix bite problems (malocclusion). The “bite” is the dental term used to explain how the upper or lower teeth fit together; when there is an irregularity due to misaligned or missing teeth, it often affects the ability to chew food and causes problems such as bruxism. Braces help correct all these complications.

How are braces put on teeth?

  • Dental Cleaning. Teeth are cleaned for polished, plaque-free teeth.

  • Gel and glue. A gel is placed on the surface of the tooth, then, the brackets are glued in place.

  • Placement. The specialist places the arch (the wire that connects each piece) across the brackets.

  • Fixation. The orthodontist will reinforce each bracket with rubber bands.

Why do we have crowded teeth?

The reasons may be teeth that grew out of order during childhood, bad habits, accidental loss of a tooth, and misplaced molars, among others.

Does the placement of braces hurt?

The first time you have braces installed, it is normal to experience mild to moderate pain; this also occurs after adjustment controls. However, these discomforts are temporary.

If I get braces, do I have to change my diet?

It is recommended to avoid hard or sticky foods, such as gum, popsicles, peanuts, and fried foods, as they can cause cleaning to be a hassle or even pop off a piece of your orthodontic treatment. 

What is the best age to wear braces?

Commonly, braces are applied when the permanent teeth come out, that is, around 12 years of age and older.

What is the age limit for braces? 

Actually, there is no age limit to start using braces. It is possible to modify the position of the teeth in people aged 30, 40, and 50, as long as it is indicated by your dentist and there are no other oral problems that could prevent or complicate the treatment.

How long should braces be worn? 

The treatment can last from 18 to 24 months or even up to 30 months or more, depending on the indications of your specialist.
