Braces have been transforming smiles for decades, and they continue to be a popular choice for individuals seeking comprehensive teeth straightening and bite correction.
Braces remain a cornerstone of orthodontic care for several compelling reasons:
We offer different types of braces to meet your unique preferences and needs:
Understanding the braces treatment process can help you feel confident and informed about your orthodontic journey:
Braces are orthodontic devices consisting of brackets, wires, and bands that work together to apply controlled pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into their desired positions.
Braces are suitable for individuals with various orthodontic issues, including misaligned teeth, bite problems, overcrowding, gaps, and more. An orthodontic evaluation will determine if braces are the right option for you.
The duration of treatment varies based on the complexity of your case. On average, treatment can last from one to three years.
You may experience some initial discomfort or soreness after braces are placed or adjusted. However, this discomfort is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
We offer traditional metal braces and ceramic braces. The choice of braces depends on your preferences and orthodontic needs.
While some dietary restrictions may apply to protect your braces, you can still enjoy a wide range of foods. Our team will provide guidance on foods to avoid.
You will need to visit our office for periodic adjustments, typically every 6 weeks. These appointments are crucial to ensure your treatment progresses as planned.
Proper oral hygiene is essential during braces treatment. We will provide instructions on brushing and flossing effectively and may recommend additional tools like interdental brushes.
While you may experience a short adjustment period, most people adapt quickly to speaking with braces. Any speech changes are usually temporary.
After your braces are removed, we will provide retainers to maintain your newly aligned smile. Consistent retainer wear is essential to prevent your teeth from shifting back.
