Braces have been used for thousands of years to improve dental alignment of patients of all ages. They are one of the most common orthodontic treatments available.

How Do Braces Work?

Braces are essentially a system of metal wires, bands and brackets that slowly moves your teeth into their proper alignments. Our dentists will cement the brackets to the front of your teeth and connect them using the wires and bands. During your treatment, we will adjust the wire to move your teeth into their optimal positions. Braces can be used to correct:

  • Improperly aligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Tooth Crowding
  • Crossbites, overbites, underbites and open bites

Things You Need to Know

On average, you will wear your braces from 16 to 18 months or longer, depending on your needs. It is important that you follow our instructions when it comes to brushing and flossing and the foods that you should avoid. When you have reached the end of your treatment, we will give you a retainer to wear that will keep your teeth in their new positions.
