Braces for Straighter Teeth

Once a cosmetic luxury, straight teeth have become the norm for Americans, which leaves those with misaligned teeth seeming as outcasts. Braces can be used for both children and adults and can not only affect a person's dental hygiene but also their overall outlook on life.

Orthodontic work takes time as the forces are applied to reposition teeth act slowly. Generally, the work can be completed in one to three years. However, unless the work was poorly done, most patients are very pleased with the outcome.

The "metal mouth" braces of old are not the only choices today.

  • Translucent braces are much more difficult to see.
  • Braces mounted to the tongue side of the teeth are virtually invisible and do not risk harming the visible surface of your teeth.

Talk to your dentist to learn more about the treatment and orthodontics appropriate for you. Also, visit the sites advertising on the right to learn more.
