Benefits of Braces
The most obvious benefit of braces is of course correcting aesthetic issues related to the alignment of your teeth. However, there are also numerous side benefits, including:
- Correcting bite issues
- Improving certain speech impediments
- Making teeth easier to clean
- Reducing plaque, tartar, and tooth decay
- Reducing risk of misaligned teeth breaking in an accident
- Improving self-confidence and self-image
- Promoting success in social and professional endeavors
Timeline for Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontic treatment using traditional braces can take anywhere from 12 to 36 months, depending on the type of misalignment issues that need to be corrected. The process starts with a consultation with an expert orthodontist, who will take detailed x-rays of your mouth and prepare a plan for moving your teeth into their proper positions. In some cases of severely overcrowded teeth, extractions may be necessary prior to treatment. Next, you will have a lengthy initial appointment for the placement of your braces, including bonding of brackets to all your teeth. After this, you will return for monthly adjustments. Once your treatment is complete, you will need to wear a retainer in order to ensure teeth stay in their new positions long term.
