The Tried and True Path to Straighter Teeth

Dental misalignment contributes to a slew of problems, including tooth decay, jaw pain, and more. They can also have a negative effect on facial aesthetics. Orthodontic treatment can help to correct all such issues. While modern dentistry has seen the emergence of a number of remarkably innovative methods for straightening teeth, traditional metal braces remain one of the most reliable, effective, and affordable ways to do so. If you would like to learn if braces are a fit for your circumstances, contact us schedule your consultation with our on-staff orthodontist.

The Braces Process

For some patients, we must do a little preparatory treatment, such as extractions, to make sure the braces are able to achieve the desired results. After your mouth is ready for braces, we will place them on your teeth.

Traditional braces consist of brackets that are bonded to the teeth, as well as a thin wire that connects the brackets. Together, the brackets and wire apply constant, gentle pressure to the teeth. Over time, that pressure moves teeth closer and closer to their proper positions. Throughout your treatment period, you must visit us regularly so we can tighten the braces and thereby keep your teeth on the path toward correct alignment.

Exactly how long you will need to wear your braces will depend on the extent of your orthodontic problems. The average treatment time is 18 – 36 months. Our team will always be ready to support you if you have questions or concerns while you are on your journey toward straighter, healthier teeth.
