Reasons For Treatment
If you have a misaligned smile, it should not be ignored (especially over concerns of your appearance). Crooked teeth and misalignment can leave you at a higher risk of a wide number of oral health problems including gum disease, tooth decay, damaged teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder, teeth grinding, and tooth loss. Treating misalignment can help to mitigate these risks. Orthodontic treatment typically does not last forever, but the results can leave you with a lifetime of positive effects.
If you opt for tooth-colored brackets, they can be customized and color-matched to your teeth. This allows for the brackets to blend in with your natural teeth. Some people opt to get their teeth whitened prior to the color-matching to give a brighter appearance to the smile. The tooth-colored brackets are made from ceramic, which is a material similar to your tooth enamel. The brackets can be paired with traditional archwires, which makes them just as effective as metal brackets.
Less Irritation Than Metal
Some people say that ceramic brackets create less irritation to their mouth’s soft tissues than metal brackets. With less irritation to your lips, cheeks, and gums, tooth-colored brackets can feel more comfortable than traditional metal brackets.
