Orthodontics and Braces
If your teeth are crooked, crowded, or gapped, our dentists may recommend orthodontics. Orthodontics focuses on correcting irregularities in how the teeth and jaws fit together. We offer braces so you can achieve a smile that is straighter, healthier, and more beautiful. Braces work to straighten your teeth by using a system of brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are bonded to the front of the teeth, and the wire is attached to the brackets to link them together.
Benefits of Braces
By adjusting your braces over time, we can gently guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. Dr. Dave may recommend braces to correct:
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Issues with the alignment of the bite, such as overbite, open bite, crossbite, or underbite
Consider Braces for Orthodontic Treatment
While the average treatment time with braces is 18-30 months, your individual treatment time will depend on your specific needs. Braces are a good choice for patients of all ages, from teenagers to adults. Now is a great time for orthodontic treatment; thanks to advances in technology, techniques, and materials, braces are now more comfortable, effective, and discreet than ever before!
