Traditional orthodontic device
When wearing classic metal or ceramic braces containing ligatures and arches, many people complain of persistent discomfort.
Injuries caused by metal elements of the braces, difficulty in oral hygiene, discomfort in eating, bits of food left in the braces, discoloration and enamel damage – the list is really long.
The discomfort associated with wearing braces and the long duration of the entire process are often one of the reasons why many people keep postponing the decision to start an orthodontic treatment or abandon the idea completely. As dentists, we can understand these fears.
Maybe it’s better not to treat bite defects at all?
It is often the case that despite being dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth and smile, patients hesitate and postpone starting an orthodontic treatment. Because “it’s not that bad”, “it doesn’t bother me at all” or “it’s just a matter of aesthetics”.
The final decision belongs to you. However, as experts, we are always aware of the risks brought by failure to act at the right time. Untreated bite defects often turn into serious dental problems and general health problems with age. That is why we always educate our patients and encourage them to consult an orthodontist. Sometimes one visit can change your whole life.
