Braces

What are Braces?

Orthodontic treatment is ideal for patients of all ages. Braces are helpful in correcting issues with misalignment, crowding and even malocclusion (bite) problems like under and overbites. We offer a range of options when it comes to your unique orthodontic care and treatment. It’s never too soon or too late to begin correcting the look of your smile. 

Why are Braces needed?

Braces work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth, causing them to shift into more uniform alignment. They are suitable for teens and adults alike, as the benefits of having a straighter smile is evident when it comes to caring for your teeth. Some of the reasons you’d need braces include: 

  • Severe crowding (crooked teeth) 
  • Malocclusion problems (underbite or overbite) 
  • Unevenly spaced teeth and asymmetry 
  • Speech difficulties 
  • Gaps between teeth 
Who Is A Candidate For Braces

Who is a candidate for Braces?

To determine if you might need braces, we’ll perform an exam as well as take photos, x-rays and impressions of your teeth. This allows us to determine if you can benefit from braces and if so, the best way to go about providing you with treatment. Orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from a year to three years depending on how severe your teeth are misaligned. We recommend that children come in for an orthodontic consultation early because it shortens treatment time, but, you’re never too old to consider correcting your smile.

What can you expect during treatment with Braces?

Treatment begins with a consultation so that we can get to know you. We then offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options to determine which one you’d benefit from the most. It is important that you make regular trips into the office while undergoing orthodontic treatment. During the course of treatment, you’ll need to have your braces adjusted and tightened as well as other appliances used in conjunction with the braces being worn. A straighter smile isn’t just more beautiful, it’s healthier and easier to care for as well. 

If you think you might benefit from braces or have a child who needs treatment, request an appointment or call us today!
