Traditional Braces

Traditional Braces are some of the most well tested and longest-lasting dental treatments that a person can have. Braces can be used to fix a wide variety of issues ranging from overcrowding to gaps and crooked teeth.

How Braces Work

Traditional braces work by slowly migrating your teeth into the correct position over time by using metal wires and mounts attached to your teeth. This system can take anywhere from 6-24 months to fully work depending on your overall tooth health.

Modern materials and advances have made braces more comfortable and less noticeable than ever before. We recommend that people try to get braces as young as possible once they get all of their adult teeth in order to take advantage of the natural movement of your teeth at this time. That is not to say that if you are an adult that you can’t get braces, far from it! Traditional braces can work just as well for adults as they do for teenagers, the only difference being that the treatment times can be a bit longer.

Traditional braces can help treat a number of different dental needs including:

  • Overcrowded or crooked teeth
  • Too much space between teeth
  • Upper front teeth that overlap the lower teeth too much — either vertically (overbite) or horizontally (overjet)
  • Upper front teeth that bite behind the lower ones (underbite)
  • Other jaw misalignment problems that cause an uneven bite
