What are Braces?
Braces are helpful in correcting issues with misalignment and overcrowding. It is not uncommon to have a smile that is not perfectly straight. Unfortunately, a misaligned smile might cause you to feel insecure about your appearance as well as have a hard time keeping your teeth clean. Your teeth will be easier to care for and more beautiful once you’ve undergone orthodontic treatment.
Why are Braces needed?
Braces are suitable for patients of all ages and can be beneficial to your confidence and your ability to clean your teeth properly. It is never too early or too late to consider braces for yourself or a child. Some of the different problems that braces can fix include:
- Misaligned teeth
- Spaces and gaps
- Under and overbites
Who is a candidate for Braces?
Because most people will have slight orthodontic problems, most patients are good candidates for braces. Regardless of age, you are more than welcome to come into our office to seek treatment using braces. We offer a range of different orthodontic options to fit your needs. We will perform an examination as well as a consultation to determine if braces are right for you.
What happens during the treatment of Braces?
In order to begin orthodontic treatment, we’ll consult with you and discuss the different options we have available. When you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, it is absolutely critical that you come into the office every few weeks for adjustments. If you fail to continue with your treatment, this only prolongs the time it takes for treatment to be complete. When orthodontic treatment using braces is complete, we will fit you with a retainer that should be worn regularly to maintain your results. With a straighter and more beautiful smile, you will find that you feel more confident in yourself and are more likely to show off your pearly whites to family and friends.
If you think you might need or benefit from braces, call our office now and one of our staff members can get you in for a consultation.
