Getting braces can save you money in the long run

If you have a smile with teeth that are crooked or out of alignment, the best thing to do would be to contact a dentist to see what kind of help is available to you. Not only does having a straight set of teeth have cosmetic advantages, it can also improve your dental health, saving you money.

If your teeth are out of alignment due overcrowding, a traditional brace is the tried and tested method of getting your teeth straightened and your smile back again. However there are now lots of other options when considering braces. In Camden Ace Dental can tailor a treatment plan for braces that meet your needs.

Getting started

If you are considering braces in Camden, in some cases, your dentist will have to remove one or more teeth before beginning your treatment. This could be due to overcrowding or damaged teeth. Another factor that has to be taken into consideration is the presence of gum disease. If you have gum disease, then teeth straightening treatment can’t take place until the problem is resolved.

Your options

There are two types of braces in Camden that we offer: removable braces and fixed braces. For more severe cases, a fixed brace is usually most effective. With advances in technology these types of braces are now more comfortable and discreet than ever before, with clear brackets, tooth-coloured wires, and more gentle forces applied. For mild to moderate cases of misalignment, a removable brace could be more suitable. One of the biggest advantages of removable braces is that they can be cleaned easily, as can your teeth, by simply taking off your braces.

If you do get fixed braces, it is important that you continue to look after your oral hygiene, which may take more effort than before due to the metal fixtures getting in the way. Your dentist will give you the advice you need to effectively clean your teeth during your treatment.

Long-term benefits

Straighter teeth are easier to clean, which reduces the chances of plaque and tartar building up. This in turn reduces your chances of developing gum disease and tooth decay. That’s where the money saving comes in, as you will need fewer visits to the dentist to resolve such dental problems.
