When you have misalignment, this could mean trouble for the health and beauty of your smile. Fortunately, we can treat this issue with braces. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist talks about how we create even smiles with our custom tooth-colored brackets, and how this benefits your oral health.
How Braces Correct Misalignment
Whether you are aware of it or not, misalignment is more than just a cosmetic issue. Indeed, the biggest concern is initially the way it causes your smile to look off-kilter, but this is just the beginning of the issue. Indeed, misaligned teeth can occur when one or more structures develop incorrectly or at an angle, as well as due to some other environmental stimulus such as thumb-sucking, using your teeth to open drink bottles, and more.
Not only does misalignment leads to an uneven appearance, but it can cause health complications as well. For example, when structures come in at an angle, this causes teeth to become crowded and may even push other structures out of their positions. Further, crooked teeth can be even more difficult to clean, as plaque and tartar can develop in the crevices and overlap between structures. Fortunately, orthodontic treatment can help.
You see, braces often consist of metal brackets that are bonded to the teeth and tightened gradually to help guide your structures back into an optimal position. By and large, however, the biggest concern patients have with brackets is that they provide a bulky, noticeable treatment that may cause people to shy away from revealing their smiles. As such, our team has a cosmetic option that can help. To learn more about this process, give our team a call today.
Creating Ceramic Brackets
You should not have to compromise your appearance for your alignment, and ceramic brackets can help. Tooth-colored brackets offer a discreet alternative to metal braces and are constructed from lifelike dental ceramic. What’s more? The material used provides a near-seamless finish and is not even detectable from a distance. Give our team a call to learn more about this process today.
Treating Teens and Adults
We recognize that teens need special consideration when correcting their smiles, and as such, we consider the need to maintain a high level of confidence and comfortability in one’s skin. Tooth-colored brackets allow your teen to receive the treatment he or she requires without having to compromise his or her style and appearance in the process.
