There are several orthodontic treatments out there, but fixed braces have stood the test of time and remain a very popular choice, despite the arrival of newfangled, high-tech appliances. We recommend fixed braces for teenagers for a number of reasons:
Benefits of fixed braces
Fixed braces are a tried and tested method and they have helped to create millions of beautifully straight smiles all over the world. Fixed braces are guaranteed to work, as they are in place constantly and do not carry the risks of unsuccessful treatment posed by removable braces, which are successful depending on the patient’s dedication to treatment. Fixed braces can achieve a lot more movement than some other appliances and they are suitable for patients with complex needs. The components of the brace support the teeth during treatment and prevent the teeth from slipping out of position.
Modern fixed braces
Modern fixed braces are lighter and less cumbersome than braces used in previous decades and they are available in a range of colours. They use advanced technology to reduce pain and they have minimal impact on your ability to speak and eat as normal. Initially, like other treatments, when you first start fixed wearing braces it is common to develop a mild lisp, but this will subside after a couple of days and your speech will return to normal.
Orthodontic treatment can be hugely beneficial for teenagers; it has aesthetic benefits, as well as the ability to correct oral hygiene problems and improve the function of the mouth and it is often best to intervene at an early age, rather than waiting.
