Braces are a common type of orthodontic treatment. We can use braces to straighten teeth that are misaligned, overcrowded, or crooked. In addition, braces can be used to correct a number of issues with the alignment of the jaw, including overbite, open bite, underbite, and crossbite. Braces work by utilizing metal brackets and wires; the brackets are attached to the front of the teeth and are linked together by the wire. As your seasoned dentists adjust the wires, your teeth are gradually and gently moved to their proper positions in your mouth. Braces are now more discreet and more comfortable than ever before, and they can help you gain the straight, attractive smile you deserve. The average treatment time with braces is 18-30 months, but your individual treatment time will depend on your specific dental and orthodontic needs.
By straightening your teeth with braces, you can not only enhance the beauty of your smile, but also improve your oral health and function. Properly aligned teeth fit together for optimal chewing and speaking, and they are typically at a lower risk for conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease.
