Most people are aware of the perceived disadvantages of dental braces – metal mouth and discomfort. But are you aware of all the benefits that accrue from a year or two spent wearing them? It is quite a long list, and keep in mind that in these days of modern dentistry there are many more choices as to what type of braces you wear. There is even the Invisalign choice of correcting tooth alignment without using braces at all.
If you bite the bullet, so to speak, and wear braces for a short percentage of your life, you can achieve positive results and avoid potential problems.
