Get A Straight And Healthy-Looking Smile With Braces
Braces have long been hailed as the go-to solution for correcting misaligned teeth and achieving a beautiful, confident smile with their remarkable effectiveness and time-tested reliability. At Woodland Lakes Dental in Orlando and Alafaya, braces are a popular choice among individuals seeking orthodontic treatment.
What are braces?
Orthodontic braces are devices designed to straighten and align teeth by gently applying consistent pressure over a period of time. They consist of brackets, wires, and bands that work harmoniously to gradually shift teeth into their desired positions.
How are braces placed?
The process of braces begins with a thorough examination by our dentist to formulate a treatment plan for each patient. Brackets are then affixed to the front surfaces of the teeth, while archwires are threaded through the brackets. By adjusting the tension of the wires periodically, our dentist can guide the teeth into their proper alignment. Additionally, elastics or rubber bands may be used to correct jaw alignment issues.
What are the benefits of braces?
Braces address many orthodontic issues, such as overcrowding, gaps, and overbites, improving your smile’s function and aesthetics. Straightened teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease. Properly aligned teeth also alleviate jaw strain and promote optimal bite function. A smile with straight teeth can significantly impact your self-esteem and social interactions.
Who is a good candidate for braces?
Orthodontic treatment with braces is suitable for individuals of all ages. Children, teenagers, and adults can benefit from braces if their teeth and gums are healthy. Our dentist typically recommends an initial evaluation around seven, but treatment can begin at any age, depending on the patient’s specific needs.
