A lot of people when they are in their early teens get braces put on their teeth. Your dentist will recommend wearing braces in order to correct an overbite, under bite, or some other jaw misalignment. The idea is to gradually move the teeth to a better position to improve your physical appearance and to prevent a variety of diseases such a tooth decay, gum disease, and chewing and speaking problems. Braces can help improve your smile and confidence as well. Unlike times past, braces come in a variety of types, including ceramic, plastic, and the traditional metal wire. Orthodontists recommend that braces be worn as early as possible to correct misaligned teeth to prevent various dental conditions before they crop up. For young people, the course of treatment takes between 12 and 24 months. For adults, the period is a little longer. Because of the obstruction presented by braces, you have to pay special attention to your oral health.
