CONVENTIONAL BRACES WITH A TWIST
For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of wearing braces. After orthodontic therapy, people feel more confident and can’t wait to show their smile! But that’s not the only reason. A straighter smile is also more likely to be a healthy smile. With the help of our on-site, board-certified orthodontist, we can help make your straight smile a reality.
EFFICIENT CARE AT ADVANCED DENTAL ARTS
Dental technology has dramatically progressed, providing our patients with more care options than ever. Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. Wires are less noticeable and methods move teeth faster, with less discomfort.
Orthodontics may be recommended for correcting problems like overbites, under bites, cross bites, deep bites, crooked teeth and misalignments impacting the TMJ.
Many of the reasons patients choose traditional braces are due to:
- Ability to address moderate to severe corrective needs
- No temptation to remove them, or forget to put them back on
- They cannot be lost or misplaced
Your appointment will begin with a consultation where our orthodontist will conduct a clinical exam, take impressions of your teeth and capture a series of diagnostic x-rays. Treatment options will then be discussed based on the analysis of your exam. Every four to six weeks, the orthodontist will make slight adjustments to your braces to move your teeth into proper alignment. Typically, our patients wear braces for about a year. We can give you a more accurate estimate of your treatment duration during your consultation.
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they utilize tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in with the color of your smile. These braces are popular among adults and teenagers as they provide a more discrete appearance than traditional metal braces.
