If you are considering orthodontic treatment, our dentist may recommend traditional metal braces to align your teeth and smile. Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment available, and are an excellent option for nearly everyone receiving orthodontic treatment. They are a tried-and-true method for improving your smile, and have helped countless individuals achieve a more beautiful, balanced smile.
Braces can correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Bite problems, including crossbites, open bites, underbites and open bites
Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires and bands. The brackets are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth and then connected to each other using the wire and bands. As the wire is adjusted, your braces will gently and gradually guide your teeth into their ideal positions.
You will meet with our dentist and team regularly throughout your orthodontic treatment to ensure that your braces are properly adjusted and that your smile is progressing as planned. We also encourage you to contact us as soon as possible if you have an orthodontic emergency, such as a broken bracket or a poking wire. We can resolve this issue and make sure that your treatment stays on track. Our dentist will also provide you with instructions on how to brush and floss while wearing your braces so that you can maintain good oral hygiene, as well as tips on adjusting with life to braces.
