Traditional Braces

Dental braces are among the most common orthodontic appliances. They are cheap and efficiently straighten teeth. Not only that, traditional metal braces can also improve smile and correct bad bite problem among children.

The traditional metal braces have come a long way over the years. These days your kids can have braces with colorful bands and smaller stainless steel brackets.

Why Traditional Braces are a Good Choice for Your Children

Traditional metal braces are less expensive than the alternatives. They are often covered by insurance being the most common orthodontic appliance. They are strong and will correct the most difficult orthodontic problems.

The only problem with these braces is that they tend to be uncomfortable compared with the other alternatives. It’s difficult to brush and floss, making it difficult to keep teeth and gums healthy and clean.

You can also choose ceramic braces for your children. These braces retain many of the advantages of traditional braces and offer some additional advantages as well. They are more attractive than traditional metal braces and they are easier to clean.

What to Know About Traditional Metal Braces

Orthodontic treatments improve your smile and give you a boost of self-confidence. You learn to tackle the problems head-on with a wide and bright smile.

With traditional metal braces, your dentist will correct your teeth to give you a perfect smile. Here are a few things you should know about these braces for the best results.

Eat Braces-Friendly Food Only

The biggest problem with metal braces is that you have to make smart food choices. You can’t eat everything, especially anything that’s hard or sticky.

Don’t eat chewy foods such as soft candies and caramels. It will be extremely difficult to clean your braces afterwards.

Similarly, avoid eating crunchy or hard food as it could easily damage your braces.

Finally, make sure you cut vegetables and fruits into small pieces so that they don’t stick in your braces.

Regularly Brush and Floss Your Teeth

When it comes to implant anchored dentures, you can choose between two types.

Follow Your Dentist’s Instructions
