Traditional braces for teeth continue to be our most popular option for correcting bite problems and straightening crooked or overlapping teeth. Traditional braces are effective, efficient, incredibly durable, and very easy to clean. Although there are several other options available today for enhancing smiles, traditional braces are sometimes still the best option.
Metal braces may be exciting for some kids, especially if they equate braces with a sign of growing up! However, not everyone is always enthused about having metal braces. Keep in mind, however, that if you don’t like the idea of metal braces, you can get clear braces that are not very noticeable when attached to the front of your teeth.

Today’s dental braces are smaller and sleeker than yesteryear’s braces. Because they are designed with comfort in mind, they feel better yet work just as effectively as ever. You’ll be smiling with the knowledge that your clear brackets are perfecting your teeth!
Once brackets are attached to your teeth, wires will be slotted through and the braces will be regularly adjusted. The adjustments of the wires helps nudge the teeth into place with the necessary amount of pressure. Over time, each adjustment gradually affects the desired result of the perfect smile!
