TREATMENTS

 

Braces are applied to teeth for various reasons, including poorly aligned jaws, crooked, crowded and missing teeth, or a bad bite (also called malocclusion).


 

Traditional Braces   

 
Traditional braces are made of high grade stainless steel and have metal brackets that are attached to each tooth using a type of cement.  The brackets staighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. You have the option of choosing colored elastics to your bracets. 

 

Ceramic Braces


Ceramic braces are made up of transparent ceramic materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth. They are popular among clients who have cosmetic concerns. Ceramic braces require more attention to oral hygine as they are larger and more brittle than metal. 
 

Damon Braces


Damon Braces are self-ligating braces which uses a slide mechanism instead of elastics or ligarues to hold arc wire in placce. They provide gentler treatment and cause less friction on the teeth, therefore movement is less painful. They require less dental vists and produces fater results becuase the teeth can move on their own withour needing to be adjusted. They are also easier to clean. Shortened treatment time and fewer visits to your orthodontist saves you time and money. This is a popular choice among adults.

Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth. The metal appliances are created uniquely for you to match your teeth. They are a very good option for atheletes, models, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals. 

 

Orthopedics

Orthopedics is considered the first step along the path of orthodontics. Mainly focused on children whose teeth, jaw structure, and facial growth are still developing. Orthopedics aims to straighten or align the teeth. Orthpedics typically involves short-term services like retainers or other removable devices. Orthopedic treatments have proven to work in both cases of genetic and enviornmental malocclusion including crowded and crooked teeth and help children to avoid potentially damaging behaviors (like mouth breathing) before they become a habit. 
Your child will move to orthodontics if further treatments are necessary. Orthodontics, different from orthopedics that are removable, are braces that may remain in place for months or year, gradually aligning the teeth using braces that are bonded to the teeth. 



 

Space Maintainers. 

Space maintainers help teeth grow normally following tooth loss or injuries. This device can help ensure there are proper space for permanent teeth to erupt. If your child loses a baby tooth, his/her teeth could shift and fill the vacant space. This results in not enough room for the permanent teeth, resulting in crooked teeth which affect chewing and speaking.
