Why You Should Invest in Braces

Many of our patients get braces to achieve their cosmetic goals, however many of them also utilize braces to correct a misaligned bite causing painful headaches, shoulder pain or TMJ problems. Straight teeth allow patients to feel more comfortable and confident. With the proper care that confidence will last and your smile will pay off for years to come. No more hiding your teeth—smile big and proud the next time someone pulls out a camera.

Along with straightening your teeth, braces at Sierra Dental are used to re-position the bite. If your bite is off it can affect your strength, balance and overall jaw function. It can also cause a great deal of head and neck pain. Without a proper bite, you may have difficulty chewing and consequently wear down your teeth, causing more dental problems. Braces are more than an investment in the look of your smile. They are an investment in your oral health and ultimately, in your best self.

When making that investment Sierra Dental will offer you all the necessary information to make an informed choice. Our team has been treating cases since 1985 and has completed over 3000 beautiful, healthy smiles. We are happy to answer all of your questions and show you previous cases just like yours so you know exactly what to expect.

Let us give you the braces Calgary customers have appreciated for years after their treatments. Give us a call today to schedule your consultation.

FAQs

How do I keep my teeth healthy with braces?



  1. Brush regularly

  2. Be careful with food

  3. Use floss threaders

  4. Use toothpaste with fluoride

  5. Don’t skip your regular dental cleanings


While it can be more difficult to keep up with your oral hygiene with braces, it isn’t impossible. If you are concerned about your oral health and have braces, be sure to speak with your dentist.

What common issues can braces fix?


Braces are used to correct a variety of alignment issues, including:



  • Overbite or underbite: Both are common orthodontic issues. If the top teeth jut out ahead of the bottom, that is an overbite, while the bottom teeth protruding is called an underbite. Both can vary in severity and cause not only aesthetic problems but structural issues that can deter jaw function.

  • Crossbite: This is when the top and bottom of the jaw do not correspond. The top or bottom row of teeth may then overlap.

  • Crowding/spacing: Overcrowded teeth may necessitate tooth extraction, while spacing can lead to functional problems.


As you can see, braces can help correct a lot more than simply appearance, although that too is important!


When is the best time to get braces?

The best time to get braces is usually during adolescence, as it is a growth period during which teeth can be more easily adjusted.

How effective are braces for adults?

For adults wondering if they’ll see the same results as children or teenagers when it comes to braces, you’ll be happy to know that age isn’t a factor when it comes to orthodontics. No matter how old you are, braces can tame your teeth, alter your overall mouth health for the better, and give you a smile you can be proud of!
