    How Do Braces Work?

    You may have seen braces in your teenage family members and friends. While it is great that they are fixing alignment, and braces are common for younger patients, this procedure can actually be conducted on people of all ages. Braces are the most common orthodontic procedure because they can correct any number of mild, moderate and even more severe cases of malocclusion. Braces use brackets in the shape of small squares. These brackets are typically made of nickel, silver, or porcelain and the dentist cements them in place directly to the surface of your teeth. Next, Dr. Carl Medgaus places an arch wire to bind all of these square brackets together and properly align teeth.

    What Are The Benefits Of Braces?

    TMJHaving misaligned teeth can cause some serious problems. Malocclusion is the medical term for an improper bite. This can be caused by anything from misaligned teeth to just having a chipped tooth. Malocclusion can also happen by missing teeth or natural shifting as your jaw develops and teeth wear down. A common symptom attributed to malocclusion is pain, specifically jaw pain. However, there are other identifiable symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, ear, back, and neck pain. If not treated immediately, more severe problems can occur such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ disorder). This occurs when the muscles in the patient’s jaw are out of alignment. All of the ligaments and muscles are not securely aligned with each other causing severe pain. With TMJ disorder you might notice clicking and popping sounds of the mouth closing and opening, and also if you notice any oral spasms or cramps when yawning. Braces prevent these problems from occurring or help correct the alignment of the jaw to relieve symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. If you have any concerns about malocclusion or TMJ disorders, contact our office right away.
