If you have a slight misalignment in your teeth, crooked teeth, or crowded teeth, you may be considering orthodontics to straighten the teeth. Embrace Dental is proud to provide this treatment at our dentistry near you in Sparks, NV. Use our effective orthodontic treatment to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
The most obvious benefit of having straight teeth is, of course, the way they look. Because they are more attractive, having a straight smile can give you a boost of self-confidence in your everyday life. Besides this, however, straight teeth can also benefit your oral health. They are easier to clean, allowing you to reach the spaces in between the teeth more easily. This lowers your risk of developing cavities or gum disease. One last benefit of straight teeth is that they distribute biting forces when you eat more evenly, helping to prevent premature wearing on the teeth.
There are several options available in orthodontic treatment, but they all essentially work the same way. A system is placed on the teeth that apply slight and steady pressure. The movement of the teeth will be carefully planned out by your dentist, and adjustments can be made to the orthodontic system as needed to keep the pressure steady on the teeth as they move into their new position.
Traditional braces: This is a system of metal brackets and wires that are placed onto the teeth. They have been a popular treatment for years because they are very effective, but treatment time can be lengthy, and the braces can be uncomfortable.
