How do they work?
Braces are an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve a smile that is straighter and healthier. One of the most common orthodontic treatments available, braces work to improve your smile by gradually, gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. Ceramic braces are also often available, which are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option.

What can you expect?
During your orthodontic treatment, you will visit our office on a regular basis so we can make sure that your braces are adjusted as needed to continue progressing toward a straighter, healthier smile. After your orthodontic appliance is applied or adjusted, you may experience some soreness in your mouth. This is to be expected as your mouth is beginning to align into a more straight position.

Our skilled orthodontist and his team will help you reach all of your oral health and appearance goals through personalized, high-quality care.
