Your Braces
The main purpose of traditional metal braces is to straighten your teeth for a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing smile. This is one of the most common orthodontic treatments that are available, they work by gradually and carefully shifting the positions of your teeth until they are in their new, optimal place.

There are three main parts that make up your braces include:

  • Brackets
  • Metal wires
  • Bands

The brackets are connected to the front of your teeth and then our orthodontist will connect the brackets with wires and bands. Then the wires and bands are adjusted to cause the movements of your teeth.

Correct Orthodontic Problems
Your braces can be used to correct a number of different orthodontic issues with your smile including:

  • Teeth crowding
  • Teeth gaps
  • Teeth misalignment
  • Crossbite, open bite, underbite, overbite and other issues with your bite

After you begin treatment, you will need to make visits to our office for regular checkups in order to ensure that you are progressing correctly. Contact us today to learn more.
