Metal braces are ideal for patients of all ages and can fix various orthodontic issues. We typically recommend traditional braces for patients who need more extensive care.
Some issues that traditional braces can fix include:
- Crooked, misaligned teeth
- Uneven spacing and gaps
Correcting these issues gives patients a more symmetrical smile while improving speech and comfort while eating.
What to Expect with Braces
Orthodontic treatment begins with a complete consultation that involves X-rays, impressions, and an exam. We take the time to get to know you and/or your child while assessing your orthodontic needs and goals.
When treatment begins, we affix metal brackets to each tooth and connect the brackets with a thin metal wire. We hold the wire in place with small rubber bands (fun colors optional!). After the initial appointment, you will return to see us every 6-8 weeks so that we can adjust the wiring.
Treatment with traditional metal braces can take months or several years, depending on the needs of each patient. We do everything possible to ensure your treatment is as comfortable and quick as possible while attaining beautiful results that leave you smiling bright.
Are Braces Right for You?
Many people desire to have perfectly straight teeth. Yet, few are born with them. Severe crowding and misalignment are common issues that can make dental hygiene difficult. During an initial free consultation, our team will determine if braces are right for you. The benefit of traditional braces is their durability. Although adjustments are needed, braces remain affixed to your teeth until professionally removed, so they're ideal for patients of all ages.
Absolutely amazing and friendly staff. Very thorough about what they need to do. Explains everything in detail. Love everyone at this office.. both the kids and I go here. Hands down best of the best..
The staff and medical professionals handled my granddaughters examination with great care. She is going to get braces and they answered all our questions and I know they will continue their great treatment of my granddaughter during her treatment.
Gentle during cleanings, high tech equipment and imaging the patient can actually see, clean office and kind staff. I would also recommend their pediatric dept. My 4yo went in for a filling and from the time he sat in the dental chair to the time we left the building only 15 mins had passed. Dr. Stephanie was very fast and efficient and having the nitrous helped my little one to stay calm. He said the procedure didn't hurt at all!
Worth the 45 minute drive for us. Will be returning. Their special care for my son who has autism and extreme anxiety is beyond amazing! Would highly recommend to all parents!
