Braces are an excellent orthodontic treatment option for almost all patients. They are one of the most common orthodontic treatment options available, and they work by gently and gradually realigning your teeth until they are in their optimal positions. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires and bands that are attached to your teeth and connected to each other. As the wires are adjusted, the braces will guide your teeth into position. Braces are typically recommended to correct problems such as:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Malocclusion (bite problems), including crossbites, open bites, underbites and overbites
You will visit our dentist regularly throughout your treatment to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.
After completing your treatment, our dentist will use our 3D printer to create a custom-made retainer. This retainer will help keep your teeth in their newly straightening positions, preventing them from shifting out of place so that you can maintain a beautiful, straight smile.
