Advantages of Getting Braces
There are many reasons why getting braces may greatly benefit you. Contrary to what most people think, the reasons are more than just aesthetic. Braces ensure good oral health, especially concerning your jaw.
The biggest problem that braces are designed to address is overcrowding in your mouth. This is a condition where your teeth grow all over the place instead of in an orderly line. As a result, your teeth become misaligned. Even worse, some teeth may grow in an abnormal direction, even parallel to your jawbone.
Children and teenagers are told that braces are meant to give them that perfect smile by straightening their teeth, but there are actually health concerns that can be avoided by getting braces.
You can say that braces are an investment towards a great smile and good health. Here are some of those conditions that you can potentially avoid with the help of orthodontics:
This is a condition where the person is unconsciously breathing through the mouth instead of the nose. This can lead to sleep apnea, difficulty in sleeping, and/or snoring.
Teeth misalignment can also cause the jaw to develop abnormally. Over time, misalignment causes stress to the jawbones. Soon after, development of jaw pain will likely follow.
Difficulties in chewing and swallowing
Teeth that erupt into the jawbone and cheeks make it difficult to bite, chew, and swallow food.
Gum disease and tooth decay
When teeth are not aligned properly, it is difficult to clean the interproximal or “in between” spaces, especially with the third molars. This can lead to tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.

Pure Orthodontics use latest technology with the metal braces that are self-ligating clear braces and lingual braces; meaning shorter treatment time and less painful. It is important to note that all of these options are highly effective, and the decision depends on individual dental problems, as well as personal preference.
Self-ligating braces use special little metal clips to move teeth into place, which can make them more efficient in the first stage of alignment. They also hurt less and are easier to clean.
Lingual braces work in the same way as other braces with the difference being that they are placed on the inner side of the teeth. They are more common among adults than children, and have an advantage of being invisible.
Invisalign is an option for those looking to get clear aligners that are less visible to others. These plastic aligners are custom-molded for each patient and are removable, which makes dental hygiene a lot easier.
