What Are Braces?
Orthodontic braces are fixed appliances that gradually and gently move your teeth into the correct place for an improved smile and better bite. Are you imagining a gleaming, protruding mouth decked out in metal? Think again. Traditional metal braces are smaller and more comfortable than they were in the past and we also offer clear braces, which are much less visible.
Braces can treat a wide variety of cases including overjet teeth, crowding, spacing, underbites, and crossbites. This can lead to a boost in your overall health thanks to improved speech, chewing, and oral hygiene. Having straight teeth will also enhance your self-esteem and allow you to smile with confidence.
Type of Braces
The most common type of braces. However, they are not your grandmother’s braces. They’ve come a long way with comfort advancements. Made of high-grade stainless steel, the metal braces straighten with metal brackets and wires.
Made from crystal, each crystal is honed then heat polished for a superbly clear and strong bracket. Once bonded, they are less visible than their metal counterparts and are often requested by older teenagers and adult patients. It is important to note, they do require more oral care then metal braces.
