Are Braces Right for Me?
Candidates for Braces
Traditional metal braces are one of the most versatile methods of orthodontic correction. They are very powerful and are able to shift teeth that are severely crooked, rotated, overcrowded, or gapped. If you have more serious orthodontic issues, metal braces may be the best way to correct the position of your teeth.
What to Expect
The Metal Braces Treatment Process
After Dr. Mindy approves you for treatment, she will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. During your first appointment, a series of low-profile metal brackets will be bonded to your teeth. Then, a metal "archwire" will be run through these brackets. This arch is then secured in place by closing the door on the bracket or a series of colorful elastic rubber bands.
Every 4-8 weeks throughout your treatment, you’ll come back to our office for an adjustment. Over time, these regular adjustments will shift your teeth and correct the position of your bite and jaw.
