One of the best tools to fix your annoying overbite or misaligned teeth are braces! This effective treatment is one of the best solutions to aligning your teeth, improving your oral health, and is adjustable not only for children but for adults as well. This allows a person of any age to get the look and usability of their best smile, especially when it comes to chewing and speaking. Let Dr. Robert Seaman and our professional associates help you get this smile today, so you can have the best oral health tomorrow.
Applying braces may seem like an intimidating process, but it is actually quite simple. A polishing paste is first applied by our dentist to clean the tooth of any buildup or particles to ensure no future decay occurs. Then brackets are bonded onto the surface of the tooth enamel where metal bands formed around your arch are placed. To keep the metal bands down, rubber bands are placed in a color you prefer whether it’s clear or colorful.
You may experience some discomfort due to pressure on the teeth at first, but this is part of the process when moving your teeth into the correct position. The pressure is your teeth adjusting but should subside within a few days after adjustments. If you experience too much discomfort, feel free to contact our office here in Lenexa, Kansas.
Cleaning your braces thoroughly every single day is key to avoiding decay, infections, or buildup. This could lead to a long length of time for adjustments to be made if there is a need to remove the braces for a dental fix.
