Reasons Why You Might Need Traditional Braces

Traditional braces can address both mild and major orthodontic problems. It includes any difficulties with proper chewing, biting, or speaking, and helps to keep your teeth clean. It consists of brackets, wires, and orthodontic bands that each have a unique role in moving the teeth.
Crowding of teeth:
Crowding occurs when your teeth overlap and there isn’t enough space in your mouth. Poor alignment of teeth can result in poor oral hygiene since it is difficult to effectively clean your teeth when they are overlapping. Orthodontic treatment can help you enhance the health of your teeth and gums.
Bite problems:
Malocclusions or uneven bites may cause more severe problems. Braces aid in the correction of malocclusions by applying gentle pressure to the teeth and jaw to align them in their proper position. Depending on the severity of the malocclusion, there are many orthodontic alternative treatments. Braces, on the other hand, can help with overbite, underbite, overjet, and crossbite issues.
The opposite of crowding is spacing, which occurs when there is excessive space in your mouth such that there are gaps between teeth. Food might become trapped between the teeth, causing dental hygiene issues and gum disease. Fortunately, orthodontic treatment can easily fix this.
Misaligned dental midlines:
Dental midlines are the cross-sectional lines that separate your upper and lower jaws. The line may be uneven at times, affecting your jaw position and face shape. Metal braces help to straighten your teeth. Which can result in a symmetrical dental midline and improved intercuspation. As a result, teeth become properly aligned, resulting in comfort and a perfect smile.

There are signs that you may need to check whether you need braces, but there are other factors that need to be considered too. Typically, it varies depending on your oral health, age, and the severity of your orthodontic problem.

  • If you have moderate to severe crooked teeth, you can benefit more from traditional braces than removable aligners. This is because typical braces have metal brackets applied to your teeth that can apply more pressure to certain teeth and move them into the correct position.
  • If you’re having trouble flossing and brushing between crowded teeth.
  • If you notice your uneven bite affects the proper alignment of your jawbone. Most malocclusions are treated with traditional braces. In contrast, invisible aligners may be used for minor malocclusions without jawbone issues.
  • If you experience difficulty pronouncing certain words or sounds due to the position of your tongue under your teeth.
  • After chewing food, you may experience discomfort or fatigue in your jawline.
  • It takes a lot of force to move teeth with braces, yet healthy teeth can withstand the pressure. If you haven’t taken care of your teeth in the past, you may have chips, cracks, cavities, and fillings. In this case, traditional braces or even clear aligners may cause tooth fracture. You can talk to our dentist about alternative options to having straighter teeth.

The brackets attached to each tooth hold the archwire in place, applying pressure to the teeth. They move them into the desired position over time, and your jaw slowly adapts to this pressure.

We believe that our teeth are directly linked to our jawbone, making it difficult to imagine how they can be moved. However, under your gums lies a membrane that is surrounded by your bones and connects your teeth to your jaw. This membrane keeps your teeth in the right place and responds to the pressure from braces.

Generally speaking, straightening teeth with dental braces may take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Since every smile and case is different, the treatment time may vary. Your dentist will be able to provide you with an accurate estimate of how long your braces treatment may take

The process of getting dental braces is not painful. However, during the first few days and weeks, you may expect to experience some soreness as your teeth begin to gradually move as planned. This discomfort may last a few weeks or longer, depending on how well your teeth and gums adjust to the constant pressure.

If there isn’t enough space in your mouth for all of your adult teeth, you’re likely to have a crooked smile or poor bite. The teeth may be forced to erupt in an irregular position depending on where they can find some space.

In some orthodontic cases, extracting one or more teeth can assist in making enough space. It will allow the remaining teeth and jaw to be properly aligned through braces. The dentist can evaluate your mouth to develop a treatment plan. This process will determine whether tooth extraction may be necessary.

Your teeth should be very clean before your dentist applies your braces. They will place the braces on your teeth after they have been properly cleaned and dried.

Following that, the brackets will be applied to your teeth with a special adhesive to keep them in place. A blue light hardens the adhesive and seals the bond. Finally, the dentist will run the archwire through the brackets. Then, secure it with ligature bands (unless you have self-ligating braces, in which case no further bands are required) and done!

The estimated cost of traditional metal braces in Australia may range between $4,500 and $8,000. The expense of your treatment may vary depending on several factors, including what type of braces you may require or prefer and the length of treatment. Typically, ceramic braces may be more expensive than traditional metal braces.
