Most kids and adults aren’t overjoyed at the prospect of wearing braces. However, Denver braces dentist Dr. Robert Rudman often wins reluctant patients over with the prospect of achieving a new smile once treatment is complete.
For many patients, braces are the most effective option for adjusting the look, health, and function of the mouth. If you're thinking about New Year’s resolutions, now is a good time to consider the benefits of braces for self-improvements such as:
- A beautiful smile made up of straight, symmetrical teeth
- Better access to tooth surfaces, making brushing and flossing easier and more effective
- Pain relief from broken or worn teeth and bite misalignment
- Proper jaw function for better speaking and eating ability
Treatment with braces in early life can play a crucial role in helping a child’s teeth and mouth structure grow properly. Healthy development and function in early life could save time and money and reduce the necessity of orthodontic treatment in adulthood, not to mention self-esteem and social awkwardness during the difficult teenage years.
If you or your child is worried about the appearance of metal braces or the length of time you’ll have to wear the apparatus, Dr. Rudman can recommend multiple types of braces to speed up the orthodontic correction process. This approach can reduce treatment time by as much as 30%.
