Most people associate braces with straightening teeth, but that is only one part of what they can do. In addition to properly aligning your teeth, orthodontic treatment can also help with:
Many of these issues may present themselves at a very young age, so it is valuable to begin orthodontic treatment as soon as possible. Doing so can help prevent these minor issues from becoming bigger problems later in life. Orthodontic issues that are left untreated can lead to long-term problems such as:
These issues can be very difficult to deal with and treating them can be very expensive. While braces may seem like an expensive solution at the moment, they could ultimately end up saving you money in the future.
Most people also associate braces with younger children, but orthodontic services can be beneficial at any age. Over 4 million people in the United States wear braces for a variety of reasons, and nearly 25% of these people are adults.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic check-up by the age of seven. They may not have the typical signs that indicate a need for braces but consulting an expert can help prevent the development of problems that go unnoticed at home. Providing your child with orthodontic care before problems arise can go a long way in ensuring their proper oral health later in life.
If you are an older patient with any issues that orthodontic care can prevent or fix, or if you have never searched for treatment for a problem that has been with you since childhood, we encourage you to seek out orthodontic services. KA Dental can help you get your oral health where it needs to be as soon as possible.
If you do need braces, there are two options that KA Dental in West Palm Beach can provide.
With this option, you will have metal brackets placed on your teeth. These brackets and the wire that connects them will help straighten your teeth as you go about your life. Most patients wear traditional braces for 18 -24 months, and there will be periodic tightening needed to ensure that the braces stay in place.
The length of time you wear braces will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the ailment being corrected.
Invisalign aligners are a popular choice because they are not as noticeable as traditional braces and can correct the problem with your teeth more quickly. These clear aligners may also be more comfortable for the patient.
In general, Invisalign treatment lasts about 6-12 months, which is nearly one year less than treatment with traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are also removed easily, so you can eat without having the burden of getting food stuck in your braces.
There are numerous factors that can affect which orthodontic treatment you select, including:
