Braces are a non intrusive and non surgical way to make a difference to the most important part of your appearance your face - and more specifically your smile. After all, the smile is a total expression of your personality and if you have to part your lips to display a row of crooked and protruding teeth - it's no wonder you get a little depressed.
The presence of buck teeth or a bunch of too many teeth crowding into your gums and jaw, naturally will be a contributory factor to having your facial structure and profile out of alignment. This is certainly another justifiable reason for gloom.
Additionally, people who have these problems tend to have a lot of trouble with the biting, chewing and grinding of their food. The difficulty with your 'bite' can be not merely uncomfortable owing to the pressure not being evenly distributed when you bite in to something - it can develop in to a fully-blown painful complication, even finally requiring surgery.
The great thing about orthodontics braces is that these issues can be rectified without surgery over a period of time in a gentle manner by the consistent application of pressure inside the mouth. This is especially effective if the problem is dealt with while the patient is a child of around eight or nine years old when the bones are softer.
The jaw bones at this stage of growth are more clay-like and with the pressure of the brace - the jaw gets elongated and stretched. This makes room for all those bunched up teeth that couldn't find their own little niche in your mouth. The brace is adjusted by the orthodontist at this point to push those teeth - each into their correct position.
Now when you chew your food you don't have to contend with headaches, pain or discomfort any more. What is most important however, is the transformation this will work in your smile and overall appearance. You can flash a brilliant grin with no more reservations or awkwardness and be assured that you are looking good!
Additionally looking at your facial lines and bone structure in the mirror will no longer put you in to a state of despair. You can turn your face sideways and study your profile with aplomb - its looks great! And all this with a simple set of wires expertly wielded by a professional orthodontist. Go for it!
