Straight teeth not only enhance your smile’s aesthetics but also play a crucial role in oral health. Metal braces have long been a reliable choice for achieving a perfectly aligned bite. Davinci Smiles uses cutting-edge orthodontic techniques to offer convenient, comfortable metal braces in Edmonton to help you achieve the perfect smile.
The Importance of Straight & Aligned Teeth
Straight and properly aligned teeth are more than just an aesthetic asset; they are integral to oral health. Misaligned teeth can lead to various issues, including difficulty in chewing, speech impediments, and an increased risk of dental problems like cavities and gum disease. Additionally, a well-aligned bite reduces the risk of jaw joint disorders and can enhance overall facial symmetry. Davinci Smiles helps you achieve the most aesthetic and functional smile with well-crafted, comfortable, personalized metal braces.
Consequences of Misaligned Teeth:
- Difficulty in chewing and biting
- Speech impediments
- Increased risk of cavities and gum disease
- Jaw joint disorders
- Facial asymmetry
- Teeth grinding and clenching
- Tooth wear and damage
- Lower self-esteem and confidence
- Potential long-term oral health issues
Reasons You May Need Metal Braces:
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Overbites (upper teeth protrude too far forward)
- Underbites (lower teeth protrude too far forward)
- Crossbites (upper and lower teeth don’t align properly)
- Gaps and spacing issues between teeth
- Crowded teeth (insufficient space for proper alignment)
- Jaw misalignments (malocclusions)
- Bite problems affecting chewing and speech
How Metal Braces Work
Metal braces work by applying pressure on the teeth. When pressure is applied to a tooth through the braces’ archwire, it initiates a cellular response in the bone surrounding the tooth. Osteoclasts break down bone tissue on the side of pressure, while osteoblasts build new bone on the opposite side. This remodeling process allows the tooth to move into its desired position over time, helping you achieve a straighter and properly aligned smile. The dentist adjusts the braces over time to maintain this controlled movement. This creates the most effective result with metal braces in Edmonton.
Your Complete Metal Braces Journey
The orthodontic process starts with a consultation with an orthodontist who will assess your specific needs and create a personalized treatment plan. During the placement of the braces, small brackets are affixed to your teeth, and a thin archwire is threaded through them. As treatment progresses, you’ll visit your orthodontist periodically for adjustments, tightening the braces to maintain steady, controlled tooth movement.
Throughout this process, you’ll witness visible improvements in the alignment of your teeth, gradually moving closer to your desired smile. You can expect mild discomfort and pressure during adjustments, but there’s no pain. After the treatment, the braces will be removed, and you’ll receive retainers to help you maintain your smile. The duration of your metal braces in Edmonton depends on the level of adjustment needed, but most metal braces need to be worn for 18 to 36 months.
