Braces 101

Braces are a metal bracket and wire system that moves teeth over time. Braces can be used to treat both kids and adults. If you’re not crazy about the idea of having a mouth full of silver metal, don’t worry. We also offer tooth-colored brackets for a more discreet appearance. For patients wanting to have some fun with their braces, they can choose the color of the rubber bands that wrap around each bracket. The look of your braces is up to you!

Traditional Braces FAQs

Braces are a versatile orthodontic treatment that can treat mild to more complex alignment cases, including:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Gaps Between Teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • & More

One of the many benefits of braces is that they can correct even the most severe orthodontic cases, unlike other orthodontic treatments that really only cover mild to moderate straightening needs. They are also known to be one of the most cost-effective orthodontic treatments.

This varies on a case-by-case basis. Since each patient is different, we’ll need to have an in-person consult and exam before providing a time estimate for your orthodontic treatment. Ready to schedule your consultation? Please get in touch with our office today!

Since braces move teeth, it’s normal to experience some mild discomfort during the teeth straightening process. We recommend patients using over-the-counter pain medication to manage any tooth sensitivity they may have as well as sticking to soft foods for a few days while their teeth adjust to any wire tightening and brace adjustments.

How much do braces cost?

The cost of braces depends on the patient, estimated treatment time, and severity of the case. At your exam, we’ll be able to provide you with an estimated cost breakdown based on your specific needs. Then, we’ll go over our flexible financial options to help you fit a straighter smile into your budget. Our team will do everything we can to make your braces as affordable as possible!
