Why Braces?

Braces are an orthodontic treatment used to correct an abnormal bite or straighten misaligned teeth. Without correction, crooked teeth or an abnormal bite can lead to various dental health issues including:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Tooth Loss
  • Gum Disease
  • Jaw Problems
  • Adverse Wear to Tooth Enamel

Traditional Braces – Proven Success Time After Time

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used in orthodontics, as they are the tried-and-true method to straightening teeth, regardless of the severity of the case. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and utilize brackets, small rubber bands, and archwires to straighten your child’s teeth during the course of their treatment process. They have progressed a long way in the past decade, so they can now ensure better comfort while you wear them. Metal braces are also a great way for your child to customize their smile by using different colored rubber bands. They can be customized at each visit according to their personal preference.
