Manhasset Braces Treatment
It’s not uncommon to require braces—very few individuals are born with a perfect smile. At Luccarelli & Barrese Orthodontics, we have plenty of experienced professionals delivering dental braces treatment to Manhasset residents.
Why You Should Get Manhasset Braces?
Generally, braces are suggested to improve your orofacial look, which could be crooked teeth, inaccurate positioning of the jaw, overbites, and other problems. While it’s common for patients between the ages of 11 to 16 to get dental braces, as their teeth can be more effortlessly straightened, more adults are using braces to treat their oral issues and to get the beautiful smile of their dreams.
How Do Braces Work?
In a nutshell, braces work because they continuously apply force over an ample period, slowly shifting the teeth in a precise direction. The bone will likewise change shape over time due to pressure. Braces have many components, including the brackets that connect directly to the front of each tooth, and the bands cemented to the teeth. Despite seeming easy, braces are very complex mechanisms that play a crucial role in changing your facial form!
What Kind of Braces Do We Offer?
Metal or ceramic bands are put on the front of a patient’s teeth and then attached with wires that are periodically tightened to drive the teeth into their planned positions. The disadvantages of traditional braces contain the fact they are visible to others, sometimes awkward to wear, and you can’t eat some of the foods you enjoy.
Lingual braces are like traditional ones, except they’re worn on the back of the teeth instead of the front. They are less apparent for that reason and popular among adults, but not every orthodontist is trained to operate them. However, lingual braces come with some patient challenges, including cost, talking and eating difficulties, and the fact they don’t work for extreme over or underbites.
Although they’re the same size and shape as metal braces, they use clear or tooth-colored brackets and braces for a more modest look.
