Orthodontic Braces for Straighter Teeth

Orthodontics focuses on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. If not corrected, tooth misalignment can lead to a host of troubling dental issues, from excessive tooth wear to eventual tooth loss, and more. By straightening teeth with orthodontic braces, we can help you avoid unnecessary dental issues while improving your smile’s cosmetic appearance. Orthodontic treatment is now faster, more comfortable, and more effective than in years past, can also be very beneficial to your oral health and function, making now a great time to straighten your smile

There are several orthodontic treatment options available.

What to Expect with Orthodontic Braces

  • Braces consist of carefully-designed brackets that are attached to your teeth, and an arch wire that maintains necessary tension to gently reposition your teeth.
  • Your treatment plan will be designed to gradually move your teeth into straighter positions while allowing the surrounding tissues and bone to reposition along with them.
  • Because the brackets are bonded to your teeth, special care must be taken to avoid damaging them and preventing food from becoming lodged between them. Dr. Correa will discuss necessary dietary changes, as well as special hygiene tools to make cleaning your teeth and braces easier.
  • From beginning to end, orthodontic treatment may take up to two years to complete, and you will have to attend periodic maintenance visits so Dr. Correa can adjust the braces, if needed.

Aren’t Braces for Children?

Braces are often prescribed for children who exhibit malocclusion early to correct the growth and development of their teeth and jawbones. Otherwise, more significant restorative treatment may be necessary later in life, including oral surgery, to correct more serious problems. However, many adults who don’t correct malocclusion as children, or who exhibit tooth misalignment later in life, often need orthodontic braces to improve the alignment, function, and appearance of their smiles.

Clearcorrect

ClearCorrect is a clear aligner system used to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces.  ClearCorrect straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually move teeth a little bit at a time, eventually correcting the teeth and smile to elicit a new, revitalized look.
