The Importance of Orthodontic Treatments

You’re probably very familiar with the fact that orthodontics can give a patient a straighter and more attractive smile. While this is absolutely true, you may not be as familiar with some of the other important reasons to undergo orthodontic treatment. Your orthodontist will be capable of providing you with a host of additional benefits that include the following:

  • Orthodontic treatment can make it easier to keep your teeth clean and harder for food to get trapped.
  • When your teeth are easier to clean, it’ll lead to improved oral health.
  • Having a healthy mouth will improve the health of the rest of the body as well.
  • If you have a straight smile, you’re much more likely to have higher self-esteem.

Metal Braces

The most common form of orthodontics is metal braces. These are popular because they offer an efficient, yet economical, orthodontic treatment. These braces are made from high-quality stainless steel and are permanently bonded to the fronts of the teeth for the entire treatment. Modern metal braces are actually lighter, more comfortable, and more attractive than braces have been in the past.


Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces except that the brackets that are placed on the teeth are made from a translucent, ceramic material instead of stainless steel. This ceramic material will blend in with the natural color of the teeth, allowing for a much more discreet orthodontic treatment. The only downside of this treatment is that these brackets are more fragile than those used in metal braces.
