Are you struggling with teeth that are crooked or crowded? If you’re dreaming of a straighter smile that boosts your confidence, dental braces can help. Braces are orthodontic devices that help align and straighten your teeth, improving your bite and enhancing your overall oral health. They consist of different components, all working together to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions over a period of time.
At Purity Dental, we help our patients get straighter, healthier smiles using advanced orthodontics and custom-fitted braces. Our dentists are equipped with years of experience that allow us to work on your smile and give you the best solution for straighter teeth.
Our dental braces and other orthodontic appliances are a great way to straighten a crooked or misaligned smile. They work by consistently placing pressure on your teeth in order to move them into the ideal position for your smile. As your bite changes, you’ll have to come in for follow-up appointments to have your braces tightened.
Ever thought braces are just for kids? This treatment is applicable for patients of all ages for a range of reasons (in fact, adults show some of the best success rates too). Here are just a few of the most obvious signs that you may need braces:
As far as advantages are concerned, you can expect much more than an aesthetically pleasing smile! These are some of the ways choosing braces will help you:
We have 3 main types of braces available, depending on the severity of your needs, your budget and lifestyle.
For simpler cases, straighter teeth can be achieved in as little as 6 months! Commonly we often see 12-24 months. In more complex cases, this can extend up to 3 years, so it’s quite necessary to learn how to adjust to braces.
Firstly, daily flossing and brushing after each meal using fluoride toothpaste is very important as food particles tend to get easily stuck in the wires. Our dentist will help outline how to efficiently brush and floss your teeth during your appointment. We recommend staying away from sugary, sticky or hard foods that will easily get caught in your braces and will be hard to remove.
If you take part in sports, we do recommend investing in a mouthguard to wear during to prevent any abrasions. We offer custom-fitted mouthguards at Purity Dental so feel free to bring this up with our dental practitioners if you feel like you may need one. Once your treatment period is over, you will have a fixed retainer wire, and a removable retainer for nighttime wear. You’ll be able to enjoy all the perks and confidence of a straighter smile.
