Braces​

Braces

Braces are dental devices responsible for straightening crooked teeth or malocclusion for the most part. They are recommended to people who have overcrowded teeth, misplaced teeth, uneven teeth, or any set of teeth that’s not functionally well and/or aesthetically pleasing. Braces work by taking advantage of the teeth’s ability to shift and move whenever there’s a gap present. It uses pressure applied continuously to each individual tooth to accomplish this task. As the teeth move, the bone changes shape while pressure is being applied.

Types of Braces

Metal Braces

They are made of high-grade stainless steel. They are more comfortable today than ever before. The ability to change colors at each appointment can be a fun bonus of treatment.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are less visible on your teeth. It is a great aesthetic alternative to metal braces. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than metal braces. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is designed for comfort, convenience and discretion. It is a series of custom-made clear plastic trays (aligners) that help to straighten teeth and correct your bite. It may be an ideal option for anyone who is image-conscious. These clear aligners can give you the same healthy and beautiful smile that braces can, but without the same kind of commitment.
