Braces use constant, gentle pressure, applied to your teeth over time, to move them into proper position. Your braces are at work every moment of your orthodontic treatment. While braces are available in a variety of styles, including metal, plastic and ceramic, they all have the same goal: To correctly align your teeth and jaws for enhanced aesthetic appeal and for better oral health.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease. Bacteria found in plaque produce toxins or poisons, which irritate the gums and cause gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums. They cause the gums to turn red, swell and bleed easily. Gingivitis can usually be treated successfully with routine professional dental cleaning, followed by home periodontal maintenance. If this irritation is prolonged, the gums will separate from the teeth, causing deep pockets (spaces) to form.
