Many adults shudder at the thought of wearing braces Tamarac even when their orthodontist gave them the go signal. The main reason why adults aren’t huge fans of braces is that they feel embarrassed over the idea that they will be walking around with a mouth full of metal wires and brackets. You have to realize that once your braces are removed and the orthodontic treatment is complete you’ll not only have a beautiful smile you’ll also have a healthy mouth! What can braces fix? Let’s find out.
Is there such a thing as too many teeth? The answer is yes, and it’s called overcrowding. When a patient has too many teeth orthodontists usually suggest they wear braces. Your orthodontist will first extract some of your teeth to make room for the rest to move. Teeth movement is achieved once braces are installed. When you have overcrowded teeth, you are more prone to develop cavities and gum disease because food particles are more likely to get trapped in between teeth causing plaque buildup.
The term used to describe an excessive tooth gap is called diastema. This is one of the most common reasons why people seek orthodontic treatment. While there are celebrities that look beautiful despite their tooth gap, case in point Madonna, most people feel embarrassed about the odd space between their two front teeth. The easy fix to this problem is to wear braces.
