Straightening teeth has become a common concern for many individuals seeking to improve their dental health and appearance. While various teeth straightening methods are available, traditional braces remain a popular choice for many. Davinci Smiles uses cutting-edge techniques to offer comfortable, reliable traditional braces in Edmonton.
The Importance of Straight Teeth
Having straight teeth is more than just a cosmetic concern. It is a vital aspect of overall dental health. Crooked or misaligned teeth can lead to problems such as difficulty chewing, speech impediments, and even jaw pain. Moreover, improperly aligned teeth can make it harder to keep teeth and gums clean, leading to a higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease. By straightening teeth, individuals can improve their oral health, prevent future dental problems, and boost their confidence with a beautiful smile.
Consequences of Misaligned Teeth:
- Difficulty chewing and speaking
- Jaw pain and discomfort
- Uneven wear on teeth
- Increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease
- Increased risk of oral injuries
- Self-consciousness about the appearance of teeth and smile
- Sunken or protruding jawline
- Headaches, earaches, and sleep apnea (in some cases)
Reasons You May Need Traditional Braces:
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Overbite or underbite
- Crossbite or open bite
- Jaw misalignment or other skeletal issues
- Difficulty chewing or speaking
- Preparation for a dental implant, veneers, and other procedures
Your Complete Traditional Braces Journey
Your journey to straighter teeth typically begins with a consultation. The dentist will evaluate your dental health and determine if traditional braces are the best option. If traditional braces are recommended, the next step is to have the braces installed. This involves applying the brackets and wires to your teeth using a special dental adhesive. After installation, you may experience some discomfort or soreness, but this should subside within a few days.
You must visit the dental clinic periodically to have the braces adjusted. This involves tightening the wires to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. The frequency of these adjustments will vary depending on your individual treatment plan. After your treatment, the braces will be removed, and you will be fitted with a retainer to maintain your new smile. You must wear your retainer as directed to prevent your teeth from shifting back.
