Improve Your Smile With Dental Braces and Denture Braces
Dental braces New Orleans can correct a wide range of issues, from minor bite problems to severe malocclusions. They’re an effective orthodontic treatment for crooked or overcrowded teeth that can cause jaw pain, speech problems, and swollen gums.
Improved Health & Digestion
When teeth are misaligned, they can become infected and inflamed because bacteria from the food we eat can easily reach the roots of our teeth and jawbone. Bacteria is the enemy of healthy mouths, and it can lead to a variety of oral diseases, including periodontitis. When your teeth are properly aligned, it’s easier to keep them clean, and you can prevent these conditions from occurring.
The braces can help you improve your smile, as well as your overall oral health. We offer both traditional fixed and removable braces, with both types providing a variety of benefits to patients.
Our traditional metal braces consist of a series of small, square-shaped brackets that are attached to your front and back teeth by a wire called an archwire. The brackets are made of stainless steel or a specially-designed ceramic material that closely matches the color of your teeth. We also offer a special type of braces, called “power and energy chains,” which resemble chain links.
Each ring in the chain moves the teeth closer together and helps close spaces between them. Power & energy chains come in grey, clear, or many fun colors.
In addition, braces can alleviate jaw pressure and help your bones heal. When you have misaligned teeth, there’s extra pressure on your jawbone that makes it easy for microbes to thrive and cause bone loss or erosion. When your teeth are correctly aligned, the extra pressure is reduced and your bone will repair itself naturally.
We can help you decide which kind of braces New Orleans to get based on the severity of your dental issue and the recommended treatment length. We’ll help you find the right solution for your needs and goals, so you can feel confident about your smile again!
If you have missing teeth, dentures can provide a permanent tooth replacement option. They’re available in both fixed and removable varieties, and they can be used to replace a full set of teeth (full or complete dentures) or just a few.
They’re the only permanent tooth replacement option that doesn’t require surgery, but they aren’t as natural-looking as dental implants. The dentures are molded to fit the shape of your jawbone and they’re held in place by metal clasps that secure them in place.
Unlike dental implants, dentures aren’t removable so they must be cared for and cleaned frequently to prevent bacteria from developing on them and affecting your health. You’ll need to floss and brush them regularly and visit your dentist for checkups and cleanings.
You’ll want to make sure you don’t chew on hard or crunchy foods with them, as they can irritate your gums and increase your risk of developing gingivitis or other types of gum disease. You’ll also need to avoid foods like caramel, apples and corn on the cob that can trap food and create an environment for bacteria to grow.
