People with crooked, crowded or uneven teeth often feel self-conscious about their smiles. If this describes you, then you may want to consider receiving orthodontic treatment from a qualified orthodontist.

Braces are orthodontic devices that are utilized to shift the teeth back into their proper position. They are also used to adjust the underlying bone that exists beneath the teeth. No matter what your orthodontic issues may be, there is a treatment option that is right for you. You can contact our office for more information about orthodontic treatment. You can also continue reading this helpful guide to learn about how treatment works and whether or not it is the right option for you to pursue.

Can You Tell Me What I Need to Do to Get Braces?

If you want to have your teeth straightened, the first thing you need to do is to get in touch with a reliable dentist. The dentist you choose is an imperative medical and financial decision. Choosing someone you trust will help to keep your mind at ease while you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Our practice is full of dedicated dental professionals who are here to help you with every step of your orthodontic treatment. We provide all of our patients with a personalized treatment plan that will fix your orthodontic issues in a timely manner.

What Will Happen When My Braces Are Put On?

The process for having your braces put on is exactly the same no matter what type of materials you choose for your orthodontic treatment. Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and dried by your dentist or orthodontist. Then, bonding glue will be applied directly to the teeth. While this glue may taste unpleasant, it is completely safe. After the bonding glue has been applied, the brackets will be attached. Finally, your dentist or orthodontist will put in archwires. These are placed in the brackets and secured in place via elastic bands.

What Are the Different Kinds of Braces?

Our practice has an array of different kinds of braces for you to choose from. Metal braces are comprised of metal wires and brackets. They are a commonly chosen material to use for orthodontic treatment. Ceramic braces work in the same way as traditional metal ones do, only they are white or clear in color so that they blend into your teeth better and are less noticeable to the naked eye. Invisible braces utilize clear plastic trays that slide your teeth back into their proper positions. In addition, they can be removed during eating and drinking. No matter what kind of orthodontic treatment devices you are interested in, our staff is here to answer any questions that you may have. Contact us to learn more about the types of treatments that we offer to our patients.

How Much Do Braces Cost?

At our practice, we understand that you may be concerned over the cost of pursuing your orthodontic treatment. The cost of braces varies according to factors like the severity of your orthodontic problems, the type of dental insurance you have and the type of treatment method that you and your dentist choose to pursue. If you have dental insurance, contact your provider to learn more about whether or not orthodontics are covered by your insurance plan. In addition to accepting many kinds of dental insurance, we also offer our patients with flexible financing options. This will assist you in being able to afford the orthodontic treatment you need. Call us as soon as possible to book a consultation with one of our dentists so that you can find out how much you will have to pay for orthodontic treatment methods.

Will It Take a Long Time to Get Braces?

The length of time that it takes to put your braces on is usually one to two hours. You may experience a bit of soreness after your procedure, but this is usually managed via over-the-counter pain relievers. If you begin to experience excessive pain or soreness, you should call your dentist immediately.

Why Do I Need to Wear a Retainer?

Generally speaking, most people need to wear their braces for a period of one to two years before they can have them removed. When it comes time to remove them, it will usually take your dentist or orthodontist about an hour to take the brackets and wires off. Once this has occurred, your dentist may recommend that you wear a retainer at night while you are asleep. This will assist in ensuring that the alignment created by your orthodontic treatment is preserved properly. Retainers keep the teeth from moving around further. You may need to wear your retainer for multiple years to keep your teeth aligned properly.
