Many people are lucky enough to be born with perfect teeth. For those who aren’t, orthodontic treatment can make a vast difference to the appearance of your smile.If you are considering braces for yourself or your family, you may have a lot of questions as to which would be the best choice from the numerous options available. After a consultation, our dentist can recommend which type of braces or dental appliances would be best to help correct your orthodontic issues.
With the latest advancements in dental technology, traditional braces are now smaller, sleeker and more comfortable than ever before. They can effectively correct crooked or crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and other jaw problems. Traditional braces consist of standard metal or ceramic brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by a wire. With periodic tightening, they provide steady pressure that will gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
Most patients wear braces between one and three years, followed by a retainer to ensure your teeth stay in their desired position.
