At Baton Rouge Orthodontists, we have a team of Doctors that specialize in braces fixing. Braces are used to correct “bad bites,” or teeth that are not straight. Even if your teeth are straight, there can be other issues, such as your upper and lower jaw not meeting correctly. Not only are people usually embarrassed about these issues, but they can cause health problems as well.
There are several ways to correct these problems, and getting braces is one of them. Our orthodontist in Baton Rouge will know what is best for your particular situation. By correcting this problem, not only will you have a great-looking smile and teeth, but you will also have a healthier mouth and avoid potential problems in the future.
- Are you wondering what types of problems an abnormal bite could result in? Let me give you some examples:
- Decaying Teeth
- Loss of Teeth
- Gum Disease
- Chewing and/or speech problems
- Tooth enamel erosion where teeth do not fit well
- Problems with your jaw
How Braces Work According to Baton Rouge Orthodontist
Traditional braces straighten your teeth by applying pressure. A small bracket is cemented onto each tooth. Each bracket is connected by a wire, which is periodically tightened by one of our orthodontists. This will slowly shift your teeth and jaw into the correct position. There are different types of brackets, that range from metal to tooth color. Also, they can not only be placed on the front of your teeth but can also be placed behind your teeth.
Normally, we begin to treat abnormalities between the ages of 8 and 14, however, there is no age limit to having braces. You can choose to implement braces at any age.
The length of treatment is usually 2 to 3 years followed by a period of time wearing a retainer to make sure your teeth maintain their new position. Today’s braces are better from those in the past. They are more comfortable, and they require fewer adjustments, so let’s get started!
Many of us aren’t born with gorgeous smiles, but with Baton Rouge Orthodontist help, we can get you there!
