Traditional braces consist of multiple metal dental appliances that work together to move your smile into its correct position. Not only are braces a great option to improve the aesthetics of your smile, they are also highly recommended for improving your oral health. [/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Personalized Treatment” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]Each treatment plan differs for each patient depending on the state of their teeth and overall mouth anatomy. The first stage in receiving braces consists of working closely with the dentist to gather information and data about your teeth. To gather 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 the dentist design your personalized treatment plan. 


Once your treatment plan has been decided, you will be set with braces. Braces as a whole have many pieces that contribute to the result, but the two main components are the brackets and the archwires. 


Brackets: small metal cube-like pieces are bonded to the center of the outer surface of each tooth. These brackets provide a way for the teeth to be moved individually. 

Archwires: a wire formed into an arch, is attached through each bracket on either the lower or the upper part of your smile. When tightened, the archwires pull or push each bracket into the desired place according to your treatment plan.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
