Discovering the Benefits of Braces

dca-blog_caring-for-braces-retainers

No matter your age, you are probably interested in having the best smile possible, and with braces, you can! Able to correct crooked teeth and various types of misalignments, braces can be a terrific solution for many dental patients. If you are among those who could benefit from this type of treatment, your general dentist in Ocoee will refer you to one of many area orthodontists who specialize in several types of dental braces.

Because braces apply constant, slow pressure to the teeth over time, they help them move in the desired direction. Braces are comprised of brackets attached to the tooth front, spacers, arch wires, ties, tubes, tiny rubber bands and sometimes springs. Among the available types of dental braces are new “mini” braces, which are a good solution for some patients, as well as removable retainers made of plastic. Your orthodontist will recommend the best solution and most affordable braces for your specific situation.

The time braces will need to be worn depends greatly on how serious your crowding or bite problems are and the type of dental braces you have. Generally speaking, however, the average period of wear is between one and three years. Once the braces come off, you will likely need to wear a retainer for a period of time, primarily at night. This ensures that the newly straightened teeth will settle into their permanent positions properly.

While you have your braces, you will need to see your orthodontist roughly every month for progress checks and adjustments. Braces wearers can continue to play sports throughout their treatment, though it may be necessary to wear a specially designed mouthguard to protect against direct hits to the mouth.

The cost of braces can sometimes give pause to potential patients, as typical courses of treatment can range anywhere from $1,800 to $5,500. However, many insurance carriers offer partial coverage to help defray the cost of such treatments, and many orthodontists are willing to work with patients to develop treatment plans that will put affordable braces well within their grasp.
