What are braces, and how can they help?
Dental braces are a device Orthodontists use to align teeth and their position with regard to a person’s bite.
They are often used to correct cosmetic and structural malocclusions such as underbites, overbites, cross bites and open bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws. Orthodontic braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to widen the palate or jaws or otherwise shape the teeth and jaws.
The ADA recommends every child at the age of 7 should have an orthodontic consultation to ensure healthy mouth development as your child grows. While most orthodontic patients are children and teenagers, adults use them too. It’s never too late to get the beautiful smile you want!
There are a few different treatment options such as traditional metal braces, traditional ceramic braces, and Invisalign clear aligners. At your free consultation, your doctor will explain your options and help you decide the best treatment plan for your personal situation.
