Traditional Dental Braces at Aspen Smile Dentistry
If you are familiar with orthodontics, the diagnosis and correction of crooked teeth, and misaligned bites, you have heard of braces. Traditional braces consist of multiple metal dental appliances that work together to move your smile into its correct position.
Braces have many components that contribute to the overall design, but the brackets and the archwires are the two main components.
Brackets: we will bond small metal cube-like pieces to the center of the outer surface of each tooth. These brackets provide a way for the teeth to be moved individually.
Archwires: We attach a wire formed into an arch through each bracket on either the lower or the upper part of your braces. The archwires pull or push each bracket into the desired place when tightened according to your treatment plan.
Personalized Treatment at Aspen Smile Dentistry
Each treatment plan differs for each patient depending on the state of their teeth and overall mouth anatomy. Placing traditional braces usually takes around two visits to our office in Aspen, Colorado.
The first stage in receiving braces involves working closely with the orthodontist to gather information and data about your teeth. To conclude this information, we collect the following:
- Pictures of your face and jaw
- X-rays of your teeth and jaw
- Impressions of both your upper and lower arches
This information helps Dr. Jeremy Lowell or Dr. Ian Lowell design your personalized treatment plan. Once we have worked with you to develop the best treatment plan and your braces, we will start the braces placement process.
The braces are put into place at the second visit and adjusted to achieve the desired results. On average, a traditional braces treatment takes 1-2 years.
Who Can Get Braces?
Generally, traditional braces have been popular among the teenage and young adult groups but have recently gained popularity in the adult population. If you wonder what the right age is for your child to start orthodontic treatment, we suggest sometime between 10 and 14. All adult teeth have grown in, and the jaw and teeth are still malleable. That being said, we also recommend braces to anyone above the age of 10 who would like to straighten their smile.
