What Are Dental Braces?

Posted on 11/7/2022 by SmileCOS Dentistry
What Are Dental Braces?Dental braces are orthodontic devices for correcting a misaligned jaw or crooked teeth. They work by putting pressure on the teeth for a long period to move them into the right position. When you wear dental braces, the bones of your jaws will move, allowing the teeth and roots to move. Apart from aligning your teeth and jaw, dental braces provide other benefits such as:

Prevent Gum Disease

When you have crowded teeth, it can be challenging to clean between them by brushing and flossing. Besides, it becomes easy for food particles to get trapped between the teeth. This creates a good place for plaque to build up. Over time, the bacteria will multiply and infect the gums. The good thing is that you can prevent this by wearing dental braces. Dental braces will realign your teeth, so they are easy to clean. This means removing the food particles and disturbing the bacteria will be easy. Hence, there will be fewer chances of gum diseases.

Aid in Digestion

Teeth misalignment affects how you eat and digest food. For instance, a crossbite, underbite, or overbite can prevent you from biting and chewing properly. This results in large pieces of food getting into the stomach, making it longer to digest. Poor digestion can cause issues such as bloating, irritated bowels, and pain. A good way to improve digestion is by aligning your teeth, which you can achieve by wearing dental braces.

Improved Comfort

Dental braces can enhance your comfort and overall well-being. When you have misaligned teeth, you'll likely bite your tongue and the inside of your cheeks. Besides, you can experience pain and increased jaw and mouth strains. When you wear braces, the teeth will move to a comfortable position, reducing the likelihood of biting your mouth and jaw strains. Do you want to consider braces and enjoy the numerous benefits?
