Conventional braces allow our dentists to gradually straighten your smile. This treatment is common in orthodontics and have been effective for many of our patients, both old and young. Plan a braces consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Chung and their associates today to learn more!
Braces are a series of metal wires, brackets and bands. When you come in for your braces, our dentists will attach a bracket to the surface of your tooth. This is a small piece of metal that the wire will be threaded through. Rubber bands keep the wire in place and prevent it from slipping. Once these are attached, our dentists can adjust the wire to guide your teeth into place. During the next appointments, we will slowly tighten and readjust your braces, gently moving the teeth. Over time, patients will see their smile slowly straighten and improve, until they are in the ideal position.
If you suffer from any of the following issues, braces may be right for you.
- Crowding issues
- Gapping or large spacing between teeth
- General misalignment or crooked teeth
- Bite issues – including an open bite, crossbite, overbite or underbite
