Our Traditional Orthodontic Treatment
Our orthodontists are happy to provide an affordable and traditional treatment plan for patients needing to straighten their teeth, fill gaps, or repair overbites/underbites. Metal braces have been commonly used since the 1950s.
They’re made from stainless steel and attached to each tooth with dental cement with metal wires linked to each other. Some braces require elastics to help move the jaw and teeth into the desired position, but not every patient will require this.
How Long Will I Have Braces For?
What Age Is Best To Get Braces?
The best age to receive braces is anywhere from ten to 14, though this doesn’t mean adults can’t get braces! Ten to 14 is more ideal because the head and jaw are still growing, therefore, it’s easier for teeth to move and treatment may not take as long (depending on the severity).
We’ll stay up-to-date with x-rays and discuss with parents when they should consider having their children begin orthodontic treatment. Our orthodontist always remains open and honest and strives to help make your decisions easier.
