Brace Yourself: Debunking Myths About Dental Braces

Dental Braces

Do Dental braces only straighten teeth?

While straightening teeth is one of the primary purposes of braces, they can also correct various orthodontic issues such as bite alignment, spacing problems, and jaw misalignment.


Will Dental braces make my teeth weaker or more prone to cavities?

Braces themselves don't weaken teeth, but inadequate oral hygiene while wearing braces can increase the risk of cavities. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are essential to maintain dental health during orthodontic treatment.


Dental Braces

Are braces only for teenagers?

No, braces are not only for teenagers. While many people associate braces with adolescence, adults can also benefit from orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic procedures can be effective at any age.



Do braces have to be visible?

Not necessarily. While traditional metal braces are visible, there are also options like ceramic braces, lingual braces, and clear aligners that are less noticeable. Your orthodontist can help you choose the best option based on your preferences and treatment needs.


Will wearing braces affect my speech?

Initially, you may experience some minor changes in speech patterns as you adjust to wearing dental braces. However, with practice and time, most people adapt quickly, and any speech impediments typically resolve as you become accustomed to the dental braces.
