Straightening Smiles with Precision
Braces are orthodontic appliances consisting of brackets, wires, and bands that work together to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. They are a popular and effective treatment for individuals with misaligned teeth or jaw irregularities. Braces apply gentle, controlled forces to guide teeth into their proper positions over time. At Newcastle Dental Care, we offer comprehensive braces treatment to help patients achieve beautifully aligned and healthy smiles.
Why might a person need braces?
Crooked or Misaligned Teeth
The most common reason for needing braces is to address crooked or misaligned teeth. Crooked teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile but can also contribute to dental issues such as difficulty in cleaning, increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and improper bite alignment. Braces gradually move the teeth into their correct positions, resulting in a straighter and more functional smile.
Bite problems, such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, or open bite, can impact oral function and overall dental health. Braces are effective in correcting these bite irregularities, aligning the upper and lower teeth and jaws, and improving chewing efficiency, speech, and jaw alignment.
In some cases, orthodontic treatment with braces may be necessary to address jaw irregularities, such as a narrow palate or misaligned jaws. Braces, in combination with other orthodontic appliances, can help align the jaws and create a more harmonious facial profile.
Dental Crowding or Spacing
Braces are used to address dental crowding, where there is insufficient space in the dental arch to accommodate all the teeth properly. They can also close gaps or spaces between teeth caused by missing teeth or natural gaps. By creating proper spacing, braces improve oral hygiene, reduce the risk of dental problems, and enhance the overall appearance of the smile.
Long-Term Oral Health
Straight teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. By addressing misalignments or bite problems with braces, you can improve your long-term oral health and prevent potential dental complications.
