Straighten Your Smile With Dental Braces

A brace is a device that helps straighten your teeth. Ideally, braces correct your alignment and bite while promoting good oral hygiene. They consist of wires, bands, and brackets that apply pressure to your teeth to move them into the correct position. Braces use steady force to move teeth through the bone. As the treatment progresses, you will notice gradual changes in the alignment of your teeth. This movement creates pressure on the periodontal ligament surrounding the teeth' roots. The pressure causes the bone surrounding the roots to resorb or melt away. This allows the tooth to move within the socket toward the desired location. The movement of teeth also affects the periodontal ligaments. Over time these ligaments will remodel and become thicker. This will stabilize the tooth in the corrected position in the jaw. At Tijuana Dental Studio, braces treat orthodontic problems, including overbites, underbites, cross bites, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, and misaligned jaws.

Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of fixed orthodontic appliance and work by using a system of brackets, wires, and bands to move teeth into their desired position.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces offer patients a more discreet orthodontic treatment than traditional metal braces. The brackets are made from clear or tooth-colored materials, making them less noticeable than metal brackets. In addition, the wires used to move your teeth are made of translucent material. By combining these two features, your orthodontist can straighten your smile without drawing attention to the appliances in your mouth.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are placed on the back of your teeth, making them invisible to others. They are similar to traditional metal braces, but they are placed differently. They are a good option for patients with underbites, overbites, cross-bites, and open bites. Your teeth will be properly aligned, and you will never have to worry about their appearance when you smile.

The Benefits of Braces

Braces Can Correct Jaw Misalignment

If your upper and lower jaws are not aligned when you bite down, it can cause problems with your facial structure. This can lead to headaches and even migraines. A misaligned jaw can also cause TMJ disorder, which causes pain in the face, neck, and head. Wearing braces can correct these jaw problems and improve your overall quality of life.

Braces Improve Oral Health

Correcting crooked teeth can promote healthier gums because it will be easier to brush and floss. When teeth are crowded together, it can be challenging to clean the spaces between them and get food particles out before they cause decay. With straighter teeth, it’s easier to prevent tooth decay which can lead to tooth loss. Plus, the cleaner your teeth are, the more confident you’ll feel flashing your pearly whites!

While braces can be uncomfortable and take some getting used to, once the treatment is over, you will have the smile you have always wanted! To learn more about braces, visit Tijuana Dental Studio at Calle Quinta, Zona Centro, Tijuana Baja California 7974, or call (619) 955 6901.
