When Dr. Simeone and Dr. Bruck straighten a patient’s teeth, they don’t just give them a more beautiful smile, but a healthier one as well! Properly spaced teeth experience less wear and tear as the years go by, plus they are much easier to clean while brushing and flossing, dramatically lowering someone’s risk for cavities and gum disease.

How Misaligned Teeth Affect Your Oral Health
Often, it is believed that misalignment issues are only cosmetic concerns; however, this is not true! When your teeth are not properly aligned, it makes them more difficult to clean, increasing your risk for gum disease and tooth decay.
Not to mention, a poorly aligned bite can also cause issues with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects the jaw to the skull. You can even have a heightened risk for dental emergencies, especially if you have protruding teeth. To prevent these complications, metal braces in Thorndale can provide the solution you need.
Straighten Your Teeth with an Effective Solution
Due to several advancements in orthodontics, metal braces are still one of the most effective and reliable options to treat even the most complex bite and alignment issues. No matter if you have gapped, rotated, tilted, or overcrowded teeth, metal braces can offer a solution. They can even align your bite to improve your oral function.
By attaching brackets and wires to the surface of the teeth, they are gradually shifted into their ideal positions. Now, braces can be made to look less noticeable thanks to smaller brackets and wires to deliver a more discreet treatment.
What to Expect When Getting Metal Braces
First, you will need to schedule an orthodontic consultation. In addition to a visual examination, impressions and digital images are needed to create a treatment plan to move your teeth. The brackets and wires will be placed on the teeth, and small adjustments will be made over time to move them into position. On average, your treatment will take about 18 to 24 months to complete; however, that time will vary from person to person. After your braces are removed, you will need to wear a retainer for a short time to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions.
While your braces are in place, it is important to maintain your oral hygiene and regular appointments for checkups and adjustments. In addition, there are certain foods you will need to avoid to prevent damage to your teeth and the braces, like overly sticky foods and those that contain sugar.
