What are Braces?

Braces are devices used by orthodontists to straighten teeth and to achieve a beautiful smile and a healthy bite. When properly used, braces shift the position of your teeth by applying gentle pressure over time. Straightening a crooked, gapped, or misaligned bite can improve your overall dental health, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful, and healthy smile for many years to come.  Thanks to modern orthodontic technology, bulky and uncomfortable braces are a thing of the past! It’s never been easier to enjoy braces with options like traditional metal, clear braces and Invisalign. Schedule a free consultation to find out which treatment is right for you.

Benefits of Braces Treatment

There are many reasons why our people get braces. While a prettier smile can give you a confidence boost, there are other benefits beyond the cosmetic enhancement!  People are often surprised to learn that crowded teeth are more challenging to clean. Poorly aligned teeth create areas where food can be trapped. Over time these trapped food particles can cause plaque to build-up, leading to undesirable dental conditions like tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment with braces can help you avoid these outcomes.  By investing in braces treatment now, you can avoid dental health issues and costly procedures in the future. Schedule a free consultation today and see how braces can give you a happier, healthier smile.

How Do Braces Work?

All treatment with braces operates using the principle of gentle pressure applied to your teeth and supporting tissues. While many people think of their teeth as set in their jaw, your teeth are actually attached to the periodontal membrane. The periodontal membrane connects your jaw to the surrounding bone. Gentle pressure to the periodontal membrane remodels the bone around the teeth, allowing the teeth to move into their new positions.

Throughout your treatment with braces, the gentle, consistent force gradually moves your teeth into alignment. While we offer numerous different treatment options, they all observe this fundamental principle.

Since metal braces are not removable, they are working around the clock to straighten teeth, making treatment reliable and more efficient. Metal braces are also often a more affordable option for many people. 

While metal braces often get a bad rap for being clunky and noticeable, modern metal braces are more inconspicuous than ever. They can also be a stylish accessory to your look! The elastics that secure the wire in place come in many different colors to customize your appearance.

How Long Does Braces Treatment Take?

Since everyone’s orthodontic needs are different, the total treatment time will vary from person to person. It isn’t easy to know anyone’s exact treatment time without consultation. That said, the average treatment time for braces in our practice is usually between 16-20 months. Even though treatment takes some time, you will be surprised at the amount of improvement you see in the first few weeks!  Getting optimal results requires a unique treatment plan tailored to your needs. Dr. Lazzara is an orthodontic specialist with years of experience. He knows how to factor in other considerations like age and overall dental health that can affect your treatment plan.
