Reasons for Braces:
- Breathing or swallowing problems – Mouth breathing can lead to snoring and sleep apnea.
- Crossbite – One or more upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth.
- Crowding – Involving extra teeth or malpositioned teeth.
- Deep Overbite – The lower front teeth bite into the upper tissue of the upper teeth.
- Disfiguring of the face & mouth – Affects the development of the jaw and position of the teeth.
- Jaw & jaw joint pain
- Missing or extra teeth – Due to tooth decay, injuries, or inherited problems.
- Overjet – Upper teeth that protrude beyond normal and are usually associated with a short lower jaw.
- Self-image – An attractive smile can boost a person’s self-image and confidence.
- Spacing between teeth – Teeth are missing or may be too small or too large.
- Speech, chewing or biting problems
- Underbite (lower jaw protrusion) – Lower jaw is longer than the upper jaw.
- Teeth erupting out of position – Can be guided to proper alignment.
What are Traditional Braces?
Traditional (metal) braces are made out of stainless steel or titanium. Modern metal braces are smaller, flatter, and more lightweight than they used to be. Oftentimes when people think of metal braces, they think of the old school “metal mouth” type images, however braces have come a long way since then!
Traditional metal braces consist of small brackets that are attached to each tooth with a special dental bonding adhesive. A dental wire (called an arch wire) is attached to each bracket, connecting them together. Elastic bands, also called O-rings, are used to attach the arch wire to the brackets.
After braces have been applied, periodic follow ups are required so that they can be adjusted. This involves repositioning the arch wire which puts subtle pressure on the teeth to slowly move them into their correct position. As the teeth move over time, the bone surrounding the teeth changes shape which allows the teeth to stay firmly anchored into their correct alignment.
Metal braces can be used to correct all types of conditions. They are the most durable option because they don’t break easily. Additionally, they are usually the least expensive type of braces and they provide the shortest treatment duration compared to other types of braces.
Invisalign: A Clear Braces Option
How Does Invisalign Work?
The Invisalign teeth straightening process is nearly identical to that of traditional braces, in that the molded aligners gently push the teeth from their current position to their ideal position over a period of time. The difference lies in their incredible comfort, and lack of interference in your daily life!
The Clear Aligners are Removable
When you eat you may remove the clear aligners and eat anything you chose. Or if you have an important speaking gig, you can just take them out.
They’re Practically Invisible!
The best part about Invisalign Clear Aligners is that most people can’t even tell you are wearing them!
Extensive Safety Protocols in place
To help prevent the transmission of all respiratory infections, including COVID-19, our office is taking additional infection control steps to ensure patient safety.
We are following universal precautions and new guidelines set forth by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
We have placed sneeze guards in our reception welcome counter and 99.9% True HEPA filters in key areas throughout the office. We will also be taking strict hygiene steps to protect our patients and staff. We look forward to seeing you. Thank you and stay safe.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment often go beyond the obvious physical changes of an improved bite and straighter teeth; it’s also a great way to improve a person’s overall self-image. While having beautiful straight teeth is important, even more important is the need to alleviate any potential health problems associated with the teeth or jaw. Crooked teeth or jaw problems may contribute to improper cleaning of teeth, leading to tooth decay and, possibly, gum disease or total tooth loss. Orthodontic problems that go untreated can lead to chewing and digestion difficulties, speech impairments, and abnormal wear of tooth surfaces. Over time, excessive strain on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth can affect the jaw joints leading to problems such as headaches or face and neck pain.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7. Though orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, timely treatment ensures maximum dental health.
With all of the recent advancements in orthodontics, wearing braces has never been easier. State-of-the-art appliances and treatments are now available. Some patients may even be candidates for treatment with Invisalign, a revolutionary way to straighten teeth using clear, retainer type aligners that require no braces or wires!
We will thoroughly discuss which treatment option is best suited for you!
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few of the most common questions we are asked.
What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics (also referred to as dentofacial orthopedics) is a specialized form of dentistry focusing on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial abnormalities.
Who Is An Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a dental specialist who has received two to three more years of additional training and experience than a general dentist. Your orthodontist is able to straighten teeth, correct misaligned jaw structure, and improve the function of your smile.
What Are Braces?
Braces are used by your orthodontist to help you improve the look and feel of your smile. There are several different types of braces to choose from, including Invisalign Clear Aligners and Traditional metal braces.
What's The Best Age To Visit The Orthodontist?
If you want to improve the look and feel of your smile, then any age can be a great age to see the orthodontist. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children first visit an orthodontist around the age of seven; however, orthodontic treatment is not exclusive to children and teens, with about one in every four orthodontic patients being an adult. Whether you’re considering treatment for yourself or for a child, any time is a good time to visit the orthodontist.
Do Braces Hurt?
Braces do not often hurt though you may feel a small amount of discomfort for a couple days as your teeth, gums, cheeks, and mouth get used to your new braces.
How Long do I have to Wear Braces?
The amount of time spent in braces will vary depending on the individual patient, because every smile responds differently to treatment. Treatment times can take anywhere between six and 30 months, but most standard treatments take about 22 months.
Will My Braces Interfere with Activities?
Speech, School Activities, Sports, Playing An Instrument, Singing – are these a problem? Initially it may require some adjustment when you first get your braces, but wearing braces will not stop you from participating in most activities. If you play a contact sport, it is recommended that you wear a mouthguard to protect your braces or appliance.
