Getting braces for your child can be a tough task at times. These pairs cost a lot these days and dental care can get a little expensive if you do not follow certain things. Nowadays, a pair of braces could cost you 5000 dollars or more. Many a time, even if you and your family members have insurance, braces could be outside the purview of the insurance cover.
You might be like many adults out there who have crooked teeth causes. Perhaps you would have liked braces when you were young, but your parents could not afford it. Now perhaps as a middle-aged individual you are wishing that you had somehow been able to have this done. Your confidence might need a boost that would help you in the workplace and even socially. Not only will it make others take notice, but it will just make you feel better about yourself as well.
Damaged Teeth: Excessive grinding or carbonated drinks can wear teeth down – or sometimes teeth are chipped or broken. Veneers can reshape these teeth back to their natural form.
Some unscrupulous dentists will try to trade you services or treatments you do not need. In this situation, go along with your gut instinct to get an extra opinion from another dentist if you are unsure that any treatment solutions are not best for your needs.
Today, braces are far more socially accepted than they were in the past. Again, think back to 20 to 30 years ago and imagine how many people had braces. The fact is that it was not that common back then. With recent advances in technology, treatment is much easier – smaller braces, clear braces, Invisalign and other totally clear options. And as a result, braces are becoming more and more common. This is true for both children and adults.
In some areas of the world, people have fluoridated drinking water – which means fluoride is put into their water. At very low levels, fluoride has been proven to help prevent cavities. When we don’t have fluoride in our water (like in Vancouver, Surrey, or Delta) – this preventative effect is not there. Additionally, many children these days are exposed to a diet high in sugar, with lots of sticky foods. These sticky sugars constantly ‘attack’ the baby teeth and create large cavities. This poor diet, in combination with poor brushing habits can lead to large cavities, which then require big fillings or an early removal of baby teeth.
Children are usually seen to resemblance their parents in their structure of jaw and mouth. We have seen children being born with the same defect as their parents. All these problems are found in case of adults as well.Along with these there are also spaces between teeth which the orthodontist will fill. This too is taken care of by the orthodontist. The problems are almost similar in the case of children and adults but the treatment however will differ. The reason is the nature of the jaw bone which is mild and soft in case of children and which is hard and fully grown in the case of adults.
