If you need orthodontic treatment but don’t want traditional metal braces, consider treatment with mini-diamond braces. People opt for this form of treatment for various reasons.
If your teeth do not line up properly, you may have problems with biting and chewing. In addition to making it more difficult to eat, the problem could cause you to be more susceptible to damaged teeth because they may hit together due to the misalignment.
Misaligned teeth can also interfere with the appearance you desire. Crooked teeth might make you feel self-conscious when you smile. As a result, you may get to the point to where you find yourself refusing to smile, which can further damage your social life. If you are struggling with the appearance of your teeth, you should definitely consider having them straightened.
You may have teeth that are straight relative to the adjacent teeth, but you have an overbite or an under bite. This is when the upper teeth do not match up with the lower ones as they should; they either hang too far over the lower teeth or the lower ones stick out further than the upper ones. This condition can impact the appearance as well as the biting and chewing activity.
Whether your teeth need to be moved forward or backward to correct an overbite or they need to be straightened, our orthodontist can help you select the right method. If your teeth are not extremely crooked and you are concerned with the way the braces look, you might be a good candidate for mini-diamond braces.
Mini-diamond braces are effective for both children and adults. They are smaller than traditional braces, and they are also more comfortable. This is a safe and effective treatment that offers more discretion and convenience than traditional metal braces.
Not everyone is a good candidate for mini-diamond braces. Sometimes, traditional metal braces are necessary in order to make the corrections that are needed. This is why it is so important to schedule a consultation with our team before deciding whether or not mini-diamond braces are right for you.
