Straighten your teeth with our top-notch orthodontic services
We all know how important good dental hygiene is. This means brushing, flossing, regular dental visits, and taking care of potential issues before they become problematic. One of the most common issues many dentists see is crooked teeth, which can put pressure on certain parts of your jaw if left untreated. This could lead to more serious issues later in life. Not only can braces help improve your oral health but having a straight smile can also boost self-confidence. At the dental practice of Dr. James Moran in Fallbrook, California, we offer top-notch orthodontic services to straighten your teeth and have you smiling with confidence once again.
Braces are not just for kids!
According to Humana, over four million people in the United States wear braces. Of those, 25% of them are adults. Many adults can develop overcrowding or misaligned teeth (known as malocclusion) because of shifting or lost teeth. This shifting can put stress on the jaw and other areas of the mouth. If too many teeth are missing or misaligned, it may cause difficulty when eating and other health concerns if left untreated.
Many dentists find that thumb sucking and tongue thrusting can cause malocclusion in children. Also, some children may lose their baby teeth early, which can cause potential issues as they grow.
Many different kinds of braces available today
Most people visualize metal wires and brackets and a silver metallic smile when they hear the term ‘braces.’ However, there are many different styles available on the market today.
Some older teens and adults choose clear braces, which are virtually invisible. Newer styles favored by younger people feature ceramic brackets and wires of different colors. This enables them to integrate some of their own personality into their braces.
