Orthodontic treatment improves your smile.
A beautiful and happy smile can create a lasting impression on the minds of people and some of us are born with beautiful teeth that add to the beauty of the smile. Unfortunately some of us have a defective tooth that mars the smile, but don’t lose heart; we have a range of Orthodontic treatments will make your smile look fantastic every time you smile.

Health advantages of Orthodontic treatment

Chewing is the first part of digestion. If you do not food properly, the rest of your digestive system will have to work harder. Moreover, when your teeth are crooked, they are harder to clean and will wear unevenly. As a result, your gums can get inflamed and your teeth hurt. Orthodontic treatment can inhibit gum problems and prevent tooth loss.

Are there any age limits?
No, there are no age limits! Orthodontic treatment goes slower when you are older, and it feels different. People as old as 90 are getting braces. People who live to 90 know how important it is to take care of them, and orthodontic treatment is part of it.

How is adult orthodontic treatment different than teenage orthodontic treatment?
As you get older, you heal more slowly. Therefore, the treatment takes longer since the orthodontist needs to be gentler with his treatment and he can only move your teeth slowly to let your mouth heal between tightening appointments. This changes the treatment slightly because the orthodontist may have to remove some teeth to make everything fit whilst he could have stretched your jaw if you had come in for treatment when you were a teenager. The treatment is, therefore, basically the same with only minor differences and still works at an old age!

Different types of braces
Metal braces are most popular with kids and teenagers. They love using different colours of ligature ties. These braces are much smaller than ever before. Translucent clear ceramic braces are the most popular with adults. You have to stare closely at someone to notice their presence. They are made of ceramic material. Gold braces are the newest. They are stainless steel braces coated with 24 karat gold. They have the strength of metal, but match better with the colour of the teeth. Lingual orthodontics is particularly recommended for adults who often want to improve the look and the function of their teeth, without letting anyone noticing the treatment.
