One of the most common orthodontic treatments available is what we call traditional metal braces. They work to improve your smile by gradually, gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. Ortho 360 also offers you the choice of ceramic braces, which are sometimes referred to as “clear” braces. These are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option and are sometimes considered more aesthetically pleasing.
If you have ever wanted your smile to be straighter and more attractive, braces may be right for your smile. With braces, we are able to correct orthodontic issues such as:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Problems with the bite, including crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite
