A Look At Dental Braces – Anaheim, CA

Anaheim bracesEveryone should visit a dentist. It’s one of the annual elements of good health and wellbeing that should not get ignored. While a good dental professional can help with cleaning, maintenance, whitening, and more, it can be important to also visit an orthodontist. This becomes especially true if one has teeth that are in need of straightening. Overbites, deep bites, open bites, and other issues could cause serious problems for people. With flaws in place, there’s a lot of things that can be helped by an expert. Orthodontists work with teeth and help improve overall dental health beyond what a dentist might do. One of the things that they do best is found with dental braces.



The Process of Braces

Braces help move teeth in the correct place. In the past, there was only one type of solution for this, and it was metal. Metal wiring would be placed along the teeth, connecting them, and then slowly turned until the teeth were straightened. This is still widely used, but there are many other options that can be utilized.

The process of fitting braces requires an individual to visit a specialist. A specialist will measure the jaw, teeth, and placements, then place the braces in place in a custom fitting element. Orthodontists will then check in on the changes, and continue to tighten, adjust, and help improve the alignment of the teeth overall.

Several types of braces can be recommended. This depends on many factors, but often you’ll find metal wiring, clear, gold-plated, lingual, titanium, and multi-loop edgewise archwire solutions to be the most common. A professional can determine what route is going to work best for the patient’s needs. There is no “one” solution that fits all.


After Braces

Braces aren’t permanent. They are used to correct oral issues. Retainers are given to those after braces are removed. Once they are removed, in order to ensure that the teeth do not go back to misalignment, retainers are used to keep things in place. Headgear may be needed as well, and that again is something that an orthodontist will be able to prescribe and suggest.


Finding A Good Orthodontist For Braces

Not everyone will need braces. However, upon visiting a dentist, they may recommend that you find a good one.
