Braces

Who can benefit from braces and why?

 

We believe children, teenagers, and adults deserve beautiful, healthy smiles.  Crooked teeth can make brushing and flossing difficult leading to cavities and unhealthy gums.  A “bad” bite can lead to jaw joint problems, chewing problems, and affect how we look.

 

What is the difference between ceramic and metal braces?

 

Metal braces use brackets and wires to apply pressure to teeth causing them to move.

Ceramic (clear) braces work like metal braces, using brackets and wires to move teeth but are less noticeable than metal braces.  Ceramic braces usually cost more than metal braces.

 

What is an aligner?

 

An aligner is a custom made, clear, plastic tray.  Aligners can be a great option for someone who does not want to wear metal braces.  The trays can be removed when you eat and brush your teeth.  You will be given new aligners every few weeks as your treatment progresses. 

 

 

Phase 1 Orthodontics

What is Phase 1 Orthodontics? 

 

Sometimes, braces are started before all baby teeth have fallen.  In these cases, when bite problems or crowding issues are corrected early, more severe problems can be avoided in the future.  An orthodontic consultation can be done as early as age 7 to determine if Phase 1 Orthodontics is needed.
