Damon & Metal Teeth Braces
Dental braces are wire-based devices used to align and straighten over-crowded and misaligned teeth. The goal of braces is to properly align the teeth and jaws to produce an even bite, whilst also working to improve dental health. There are many variations on the market, and fortunately in recent year’s dental braces have become much more comfortable, and less intrusive to wear.
Many people choose braces to enhance their appearance, but braces also serve a crucial dental health role. Poorly aligned teeth can make teeth difficult to clean, which can result in tooth decay and gum disease, as well as contributing to speech and chewing difficulties, and excessive wear to certain teeth. Braces can prevent these types of problems before they become severe.
Frequently Asked Questions
- WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
During treatment we will teach you how to keep your braces clean by brushing and flossing. It’s important to practice good oral hygiene while wearing braces so that the surface of your teeth and your gums stay healthy. We will also explain how to cover a wire or bracket with wax if it is irritating your cheek or gums.
- HOW DO I GET STARTED?
