Most people face varying degrees of misalignment of their teeth and this is a common issue which can be treated early in life by orthodontic treatment. Other issues include crookedness, protruding teeth, wonky teeth, overcrowding of the teeth and gaps in the teeth, factors which not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but can also result in poor oral health. The use of dental braces helps improve the look of your smile and also promotes better oral health. When teeth are aligned properly, it is easier to keep them clean and healthy, because the surface of each tooth is exposed and they can be brushed more effectively. Whereas with wonky or crooked teeth there are hard-to-reach areas in which plaque can build up and lead to the formation of tartar which results in many detrimental dental issues. Speak to us at Liverpool Smile Studio to find out how braces can help improve your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile at the same time.

Different types of braces for orthodontic treatment

Advances in dental technology have resulted in the development of many different types of orthodontic braces to meet the demands of this generation. Conventional braces, made out of metal brackets and wires, which are commonly seen in teenagers, are the most effective type of orthodontic treatment and are attached directly to the front of the teeth altering the positioning of misaligned teeth using gentle pressure over a period of time, until the teeth have reached their optimal positions. Although these are the most widespread and commonly used form of orthodontic braces, they are highly visible in the mouth and therefore there is a reluctance amongst the adult population to consider this treatment option. Previously people have settled with the aesthetic imperfections of their teeth, because they were too embarrassed or uncomfortable about considering metal braces if they had not had them fitted at an earlier age.
