Braces are the perfect tool for creating the ideal smile.
Many studies have shown that smiles are commonly one of the first things we notice about people. How white their teeth are, how straight or crooked they are, even how large or small their teeth may be. For some reason, we are captivated with smiles and can’t help but pay a lot of attention to them!
With first impressions being the most important and smiles being the center of attention, wouldn’t you like a smile that counts, a smile that leaves a lasting impression and exudes confidence?
Pretty sure we all want that, right? But How? Braces, of course! Unfortunately, due to genetics, bad habits, etc., most people grow up developing less than perfect smiles. Luckily, braces are a foolproof way to get the smile you’ve always wanted!
This simple question gets a simple answer! They work by using a tightening system that consists of wire, brackets, and rubber bands. The wire (archwire) is where all of the gentle pressure that moves your teeth into place comes from. The brackets work as anchors that hold the archwire in place around your teeth for stability and tightening. The bands are used to correct and adjust your bite as your teeth are being straightened by banding the lower and upper jaw together in specific areas that need bite-repositioning.
Braces are one of the best ways to straighten teeth because of the way the straightening system is designed. Not only do they use a durable and robust force tailored and adjusted to your specific dental needs, but it is also a gentle, gradual, and harmless process that gets you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Although this is a common question about braces, the answer isn’t so simple. The cost will all depend on the type of treatment you need and how long your treatment plan will have to be to achieve optimal results. The best way to determine this is to have an orthodontist examine your smile and determine which treatment plan would best contribute to your dental needs.
Contrary to popular belief, braces aren’t just for vanity, a straighter smile can do a lot more than boost your confidence. Straightening your teeth with braces actually improves your overall dental health and hygiene.
