For younger patients and those patients with extreme crowding, spacing, or misaligned teeth, traditional braces are still the most common choice for tooth straightening. Braces can correct the most crooked smile and achieve the correct bite.
While fast, discreet orthodontic options now exist, they often are not suitable for patients who are very young and already need orthodontic treatment, or adults who have serious misalignment of their teeth. Traditional braces are proven to permanently correct tooth alignment and create stable arches in the upper and lower jaw.
Traditional braces treatment consists of five basic steps.
The treatment of full arches of teeth takes longer than other forms of orthodontic treatment, but provides longer lasting results and a smile that is both functional and brilliant. Your teeth, when in proper alignment, support each other and issues like jaw pain caused by an incorrect bite can often be corrected.
