There are few dental advancements that are more valued than modern braces. Teeth straightening hardware of the past had many drawbacks. It typically involved a whole orthodontic toolkit—full metal bands, headgear, elastics, spacers, and wires poking every which way. Ask anyone who had traditional braces, it was a challenge. That’s why you should be looking into clear braces in Jefferson City.
Some orthodontic patients found their traditional braces uncomfortable, bulky, and downright ugly. They also created many hidden nooks and crannies for bacteria to quietly drill into your enamel.
If you are too young to remember old school braces, you can’t truly appreciate the state-of-the-art ceramic braces, clear braces, and Invisalign aligners available today. Even standard metal braces are now smaller, less noticeable and more comfortable.
The advancements in orthodontic treatments and shortened treatment times are two reasons that many adults have chosen to have their teeth aligned with clear braces in Jefferson City, especially if they were unable to when they were younger.
Does that mean you don’t need to have your child seen by an orthodontist if you suspect tooth alignment issues? Absolutely not! The American Association of Orthodontics counsels parents to have their child evaluated by an orthodontist when they are young. It is important to identify problems with teeth and jaw development early. Your orthodontist or pediatric dentist will know the proper age to begin treatment if necessary.
At Jefferson City Dental Care, we provide several cosmetic dental procedures at an affordable price. Did you know that porcelain veneers can solve some less-extreme tooth alignment issues? If your teeth are fairly straight but your smile is compromised by a couple of damaged or chipped teeth, cost-effective porcelain veneers may be your one-visit solution.
