5 Things You May Not Know About Orthodontics

Even though braces are very common, few people fully understand the requirements of wear. Discover what you need to know about orthodontic treatment.

  1. Orthodontics Can Help Your Bite as Much as Your Teeth

If you think that braces only straighten teeth, think again. See, orthodontics can also be used to properly align the bite. An orthodontist will evaluate the bite by having the patient open and close their mouth. This will show whether the upper and lower teeth are properly aligned. If not, then braces are recommended to correct the concern.

  1. All Ages Can Wear Braces

Most people think orthodontics are only for teens, but the truth is that family orthodontics practices offer braces for the whole family. Today, adults of all ages are correcting long-time orthodontics concerns, while braces for kids have become more and more popular.

  1. Braces Call for Cleaning and Care

The way you treat your braces will determine the results of your treatment. The better you care for them, the better your outcome. The basic requirements of care include gently brushing teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush numerous times a day, flossing daily as instructed by the orthodontist, and visiting orthodontists in Virginia for regular check-ups and necessary repairs.

  1. Retainers are Needed to Retain the Position of Teeth after Braces

Once braces are taken off, you’ll need to wear a retainer to ensure that teeth don’t move over time. While retainers are prescribed to all ages after treatment, they are especially important after braces for kids because their jaws may continue to develop after treatment.

  1. Costs are Based on Care

There is no standard price for braces because their cost depends on the dental problems needing correction, the type of treatment, and the location of the orthodontist. Fortunately, most family orthodontics practices offer payment plans, take insurance, and accept dental discount plans like DentRite that make affordable braces a reality. If cost is a concern, consult with several orthodontists in Virginia to find affordable braces near you.
