Make the Changes You Want With Proven Orthodontics

Metal braces have helped people improve their smiles and their oral health for centuries. Over time, this orthodontic system has improved and become more effective at fixing many issues, such as:

  • Teeth that are crooked
  • Teeth that have gaps between them
  • Teeth that are crowded
  • Teeth with open bites or crossbites
  • Teeth with overbites or underbites

Whether you are looking for something to help your teen or are an adult interested in a straighter smile, our modern braces can work wonders. Most adults who choose this option take a standard approach. Teens often enjoy choosing the color of the bands used with their braces. Some even mix and match colors as a way of expressing themselves during their treatment.

For many people, creating a pleasant smile is a big reason they want braces. At the same time, you should consider the oral health benefits of having straight teeth. When teeth are crowded or overlap, you may not be able to remove food particles, harmful bacteria, or plaque buildup when you brush and floss.

By getting your teeth in line, you can clean them more easily and reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum infections. In other words, you can be healthier by upgrading your smile.

Take Advantage of Our Advanced Technology For Great Results

One of the ways you can improve your experience with braces is by using the advanced technology we offer:

  • Our archwires are made with durable nickel titanium, the same material NASA uses for its satellites. This is combined with copper to create thermal NiTi wires.
  • These wires have “shape memory,” which means they naturally try to return to their original shapes with the heat from your mouth. That process assists in moving your teeth more gently and requires fewer wire changes at our office.

Most of the time, metal braces can correct your issues on their own. In some situations, surgical orthodontics may be needed to create conditions for a better smile.
