If you have large gaps between your teeth, then correcting these malocclusions with braces is an easy process. Traditional braces made from wire and brackets are still the most popular orthodontic choice for moderate to severe dental misalignments. These types of braces are worn on the front areas of the teeth to apply pressure that will move the teeth slowly into the correct positions.
While orthodontists have invented new types of braces along with plastic aligners, many patients still choose metallic braces because the devices work, and the items are also affordable. Today, many adults in addition to children and teenagers are choosing metal braces to repair gaps between the teeth that lead to a poor bite and unattractive smile.
Traditional Braces are Easy
There are wonderful benefits that can come from having your teeth straightened to eliminate wide gaps, and here are some of the reasons for beginning orthodontic treatment:
- Improving your facial appearance
- Making it easier to chew food
- Avoiding embarrassment
- Making it simpler to brush and floss
- Making it easier to talk properly
- Avoiding problems from tooth decay and gum disease
- Preventing bruxism or grinding of the teeth
Traditional metal braces are simple to care for when you learn how to brush and floss in the right way at least two times a day. Today, the wires that are used for traditional braces are thinner but stronger, creating a more aesthetically pleasing appearance while you smile.
