But why choose braces?
The most notable result of your braces will be a straight, even-looking smile that is sure to boost your confidence. However, braces will also alleviate any problems you might have with your bite, such as crowded teeth, and can in fact make daily tasks, such as eating, more comfortable for you. Your comfort is of top priority here at Ottawa Braces, during and after your orthodontic treatment.
How braces work to correct your smile
In this modern age, the world of dental appliances has grown to include a lot more than the metal braces you might remember from years past. In addition to metal braces, you can also select from ceramic or plastic appliances as well, depending on your preference and individual needs. Some braces are removable, while others are bonded onto your teeth and may only be removed by your orthodontist. No matter which method you end up with, they all work to straighten your smile with the use of gentle pressure over a prolonged period of time. With more options than ever to correct your teeth and move them into the desired position, you’re going to see results faster than the orthodontic patients of yesteryear. Intensive research has long been dedicated to making this experience as fast and as pain-free for you as possible.
How long does treatment last?
Depending on the unique features of your face, your age and the severity of the problem, braces might be used for anywhere between one year to three years. Of course, every person is different, so you might even get your ideal results sooner than the quoted timeframe that you receive from your dentist. This process becomes even less lengthy if patients take proper care of their appliances, and routinely see their orthodontist if they have any pain or other concerns regarding their braces.
However, not all treatments have to take so long. If you get in to see us early, there’s a good chance that we can offer preventative, early treatment procedures that will take as little as six months of your time. Due diligence is key to a healthy smile, after all!
