When it comes to adjusting the alignment of teeth, nothing beats using traditional braces. Orthodontists like Dr. Steven Ricci can install traditional braces to create a functional system for correcting misaligned teeth. With time and consistent adjustments, the orthodontic components can gradually provide you with a more appealing smile. Corrected teeth are also at reduced risk of suffering from tooth enamel attrition, chipped tooth enamel, and dental fractures.
All About Traditional Braces
Each of your regular schedule adjustment appointments is very important. Each of these sessions will apply a modest amount of tension to gradually alter the periodontal ligaments anchor your teeth in the sockets.
It is very important to maintain healthy gums and teeth throughout the realignment process. Periodontal inflammation could cause mild discomfort after an adjustment. Brushing each morning and night, as well as thoroughly flossing your teeth at least once each day will help maintain healthy gums and prevent cavities.
If you are struggling to clean one or two areas around your braces components, it might be helpful to use waxed dental floss or a floss threader. Working the strand of dental floss in-between teeth and along the gumline can help remove plaque and residual particles.
Be sure to also remember to floss behind each of your rear molars. Bacterial deposits can easily build up in these areas and could significantly impact the health of your gums.
