If you have teeth that do not line up correctly, the condition can impact your appearance and even make you self-conscious about your smile. In some cases, misaligned teeth can also interfere with your bite and ability to chew your food. If your life is impacted by crooked teeth and you want them straightened for either of these reasons, you should have a consultation with our orthodontist to determine which method of orthodontic treatment will be right for you.
People may often try to stay away from traditional braces because they do not like the appearance of metal on the front of their teeth. Instead, they may choose something like aligners as a less noticeable teeth straightening method. However, not everyone is a candidate for this method. The teeth may be misaligned to the point that they are beyond the capacity of treatments like aligners. In these situations, traditional braces may be the most viable choice.
At other times, people may choose traditional braces because they are not all that concerned with the way they look. All they care about is getting that perfect smile, and traditional braces are often the most feasible means of achieving their goal.
The best way to determine if traditional braces are right for you is to simply talk to Dr. Runnels about your options. Not only will you be able to learn in more detail about all the available teeth straightening methods, but you will also be able to understand how well each of these methods will likely work for you. Every situation is different. Because of this, it is only after having your teeth properly evaluated that an informed decision can be made.
If you need traditional braces to correct your smile, you are not alone. Made out of exceptionally strong, durable metal, traditional braces often provide the best orthodontic treatment for many people. Many improvements have also been made to these braces over the years. They are often much smaller than they once were, making them more comfortable and less conspicuous. They also prove to be the most cost-effective option for many situations.
If your teeth are so misaligned that they are negatively affecting your oral health, traditional braces may be the best course of action for you.
