Braces are one of the most common orthodontic treatments available and are an excellent option for nearly everyone. Braces work to gradually realign your teeth, gently moving them into their optimal positions to give you a straighter, healthier and more attractive smile. Our dentists may recommend braces to correct:
- Crowded and gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Bad bites
Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires and bands. When you receive this treatment, our dentists will attach the brackets to the front surfaces of your teeth and then connect them using the wires and bands. As your treatment progresses, our dentists will periodically adjust the wire to keep your teeth moving toward their ideal positions. We will schedule regular appointments with you throughout your treatment to make sure that your braces are adjusted properly and that your smile is progressing.
If you are considering orthodontic treatment but would like a more discreet treatment option, ask our dentists about alternative options. Advances in dentistry have made traditional metal braces smaller and more comfortable, but options such as ceramic braces are also often available to straighten your teeth while helping you maintain a more natural appearance during treatment.
