Whether you should wear braces is a question that many people in Syracuse often find themselves asking.
The purpose of braces is to adjust the position of your teeth slowly over time and create a more desirable appearance. Many people choose braces because they have a twisted teeth or issues with their bite.
But how do you know whether braces are right for you?
The first questions to ask is, “how severe are my tooth alignment issues?” If your tooth alignment issues are mild, then you can often use a treatment like Invisalign. If however, they’re more serious, a wire-and-post approach of traditional braces is the way to go.
Many people choose braces because you don’t have to remember to put them in or take them out. One of the reasons some people struggle with systems like Invisalign is because it requires them to remember to wear their retainers for 20-plus hours per day for the treatment to work. Braces, however, are fixed in place in your mouth with dental cement and cannot be removed. Braces, therefore, are ideal for people who believe that they might struggle with the discipline of other tooth alignment correcting systems.
