Braces are custom orthodontic appliances that encourage healthy tooth and jaw alignment. They place mild pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into the optimal position.
In addition to making your smile more aesthetically pleasing, braces help lower the risk of cavities and gum disease. That’s because when your teeth are straight and correctly spaced, it’s much easier to brush and floss them.
Braces can correct various alignment issues, including:
You might also benefit from braces if you have visible spaces between your teeth.
At Esthetic Partners Dental Group, the team offers several types of braces, including:
Conventional braces use metal wires and brackets to straighten your teeth. Your orthodontist bonds the brackets to your tooth enamel and adjusts them throughout treatment as necessary.
Clear braces appear similar to conventional braces. The only real difference is that they use ceramic brackets that blend in with your teeth, allowing for a more discreet treatment option.
Partial braces are affixed to a child or teenager’s upper or lower front teeth. They serve as a prerequisite to conventional braces or Invisalign® and address problems like crowding, crossbites, or spacing issues. By undergoing treatment with partial braces first, it’s possible to achieve a more satisfying outcome.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to straighten your teeth and jaw. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are removable, allowing you to eat your favorite snacks, including seeds, nuts, and fruit slices.
To determine the type of braces that will most benefit you, the team conducts an oral exam and takes a series of oral X-rays. After assessing the condition and position of your teeth, they develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
