If you are thinking of taking orthodontic braces, then it will be the best decision for your teeth. Braces for teeth can straighten your smile properly day by day. With the advancement in technology orthodontic treatment for straightening crooked teeth has become more innovative. Detachable invisible braces that are used nowadays, apart from straightening the teeth, also rectify almost all dental orthodontic irregularities.
These include irregular bite problems such as overbites, under bites, cross bites, and correcting problems related with widely spaced and overcrowded teeth. The various orthodontic braces that can be used to reposition teeth include the most modern clear invisible plastic braces, ceramic tooth colored braces and conventional metal braces.
However, over the last few years, our jaws have got smaller as eating has got easier. Now the ideal time for teeth straightening is when young people are in their early teens but it is never too late to reward yourself with a perfect smile. There are two principal reasons why young people enter adulthood with crooked teeth and the first is simply cost unless the teeth are really bad and straightening can be undertaken by the National Health Service, it costs families quite a lot to straighten a teenager's teeth, which can be prohibitive especially if there are several children within a family.
The second reason why young people become adults with crooked teeth is that they are too embarrassed to wear train track style metal braces or simply found them too uncomfortable to wear. It may also have been jokes about braces for teeth made by their peers that also put them off, whereas, if they had been able to wear invisible braces they could have enjoyed seeing their teeth gradually come into line.
Metal orthodontic braces straighten teeth quite quickly and then retainers help to keep them straightened until the jawbone has reset the root in its new position. Teenagers and adults of all ages that dream of a straight, sparkling smile often feel ridiculous wearing "Ugly Betty" style braces that are more usually seen on teenagers.
Fortunately, there is a solution and that is the development of clear braces called Invisalign; the approach is quite different to traditional train tracks in that an ultra clear and ultra lightweight plastic aligner slips over the bottom or top row of front teeth and through constant pressure gradually realigns them.
Once the teeth have moved as far as they will go, a fresh, clear braces for teeth is slotted over the teeth and the process continues until the teeth have been straightened. A retainer is then used, usually at night, to ensure that the teeth do not revert to their old crooked ways. Once they are firmly set in their new position, the retainer can be used less and less often.
