Braces are one of the most common orthodontic options available, and their popularity is a result of the versatility and reliability that this time-tested technology offers. Using a system of metal brackets, wires and bands, braces can gently correct even the most complex of orthodontic cases, leaving you with a straighter, healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile. The brackets, which are attached to the front of each tooth, anchor the metal wires in place and provide grip needed to shift each tooth into its proper position. The wires are then run through the brackets and used to slowly increase the tension on the brackets as your smile straightens, while the bands hold the wires in place and, in some cases, are used to correct the patient’s bite. Throughout your treatment, our orthodontist will meet with you to make minor adjustments, answer any questions you might have and monitor the progress of your smile.
With braces, our team is able to correct the following orthodontic concerns:
- Misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or slanted teeth
- Crossbites, open bites, underbites, overbites and other malocclusion
Before beginning treatment, our skilled orthodontist will help sit down with you to discuss your specific orthodontic needs and goals and make a personalized recommendation for the treatment that is best suited to your situation. For an aesthetic approach to traditional braces, we also offer ceramic braces, also known as clear braces.
