Conventional braces are often used as a solution to misaligned and crooked teeth. It is a treatment that has been around for many years and offers effective results within just a few years. At Southside Family Dental we can use braces as a treatment option for issues with alignment of teeth, although we do understand the cosmetic disadvantages of using metal braces. Therefore a quick chat with your dentist will help to establish if braces are the right treatment for you, or if there is another treatment which may be more suitable.
- Braces help to make subtle modifications to the alignment of the teeth through the application of small amounts of pressure over a period of time.
- When modifications are made to the amount of pressure on the teeth there can be a small amount of discomfort, although this is normal and will subside.
- Braces can come in a variety of types and colours and once you have seen your dentist they can establish which of these are best for you
- Some people may be hesitant to get braces for cosmetic reasons, in this case we also have a registered Invisalign provider, which is another option you can discuss with your dentist.
