Benefits of Braces Treatment at EM Orthodontics
Braces have evolved over the years and continue to be one of the most trusted solutions for teeth misalignment and malocclusion. They are ideal for addressing moderate to severe dental irregularities, ensuring that patients from Conroe and surrounding locations like River Plantation, Woodloch, Chateau Woods, Oak Ridge North, and Harper's Landing get the smile they've always dreamt of.
What are the types of braces?
While traditional metal braces remain popular, advancements in orthodontics have introduced various types. The most commonly known is the conventional wire and bracket system, but there are other kinds as well tailored to individual needs. During your consultation at EM Orthodontics, our team can guide you through the best options for your specific concerns.
How do braces work?
Braces are designed to apply consistent pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into their ideal position. This is achieved using brackets that are bonded to the teeth, connected by a thin metal wire, which is adjusted during your orthodontic appointments. Over time, this consistent pressure realigns your teeth, resulting in a straighter and healthier smile.
How can I take care of my teeth if I’m wearing braces or a retainer?
Maintaining oral hygiene becomes even more essential when you have braces. Regular brushing, using a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, is recommended. Additionally, flossing between braces using an orthodontic flosser can help remove trapped food particles. Lastly, routine check-ups with Dr. Mejia can ensure that your braces or retainer are in perfect condition and that your oral health is impeccable.
Do braces hurt?
The process of attaching braces is painless. However, it's natural to feel some discomfort or mild pain after the procedure or during adjustments. This is because your teeth are adjusting to the newly applied pressure. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help, and the discomfort typically subsides after a few days.
Do I need to brush my teeth more often if I have braces?
Yes, maintaining oral hygiene is paramount. With braces, food particles can get trapped, leading to bacterial growth. It's recommended to brush after every meal or snack to prevent cavities and gum disease.
