What are Braces?

Bracket Orthodontics is based on attaching the braces, small pieces made of metal or porcelain, to your teeth with wires that guide the movement of your teeth. It is very effective to straighten the teeth and treat misalignment and malocclusion problems. We use the most advanced auto-ligated braces, which achieve quicker results and allow less frequent office visits.

Why are Braces needed?

Braces are ideal for teenagers and older-ages patients and can fix a variety of orthodontic issues. We often recommend traditional braces to our patients needing extensive care. Some problems that braces can fix include:

  • Overcrowding
  • Crooked, misaligned teeth
  • Malocclusion problems
  • Uneven spacing and gaps

Who is a candidate for Braces?

It is not uncommon to have teeth that aren't perfectly straight. With severe crowding and misalignment, it can even be difficult to keep your teeth clean. We can perform an exam to determine if you might benefit from braces. Braces are affixed to the teeth until they are professionally removed.

What happens during treatment with Braces?

Orthodontic treatment begins with a complete consultation that involves x-rays, impressions and an exam. We want to get to know you or your child as well as the smile that needs to be straightened. We then affix metal brackets to the teeth and place a thin metal wire across these brackets.. You will come in every few weeks in order to have the wiring adjusted to continue with treatment. With our advanced braces, the treatment time can be reduced drastically if compared to the traditional braces. We do everything possible to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable and quick as possible while obtaining beautiful, straight results that will last.
