Braces

Modern dental braces are available in a variety of materials depending on a patient's needs and preferences.  This orthodontic device can be either cosmetic or structural and is used primarily to correct a misalignment of teeth that may result in gaps, uneven spacing, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, many patients wonder, is it worth it? What results will I see? What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment? These are all perfectly normal questions. 

Braces can straighten teeth, close gaps, and correct spacing, all resulting in a more comfortable, functional, confident smile. The assumption is that braces are primarily about improving appearance, but that's only one of the many benefits of straight teeth. A correctly aligned bite and properly spaced teeth can...

  • Alleviate unnecessary wear and grinding that can lead to TMJ and even neck pain or headaches.
  • Prevent ineffective chewing and digestion problems.
  • Form a dental profile that is less prone to tooth injury.
  • Improve oral health; evenly spaced teeth are easier to brush and floss.
  • Lead to healthier gums, better prevention of cavities, and prevention against periodontal disease.
  • Contribute to a positive self-image, which in turn, encourages effective dental hygienic habits that preserve your beautiful smile.

When you come to Crossroads Family Dental Care for a consultation about braces, your dentist will conduct a comprehensive exam and discuss whether or not braces are right for you, and if so, which kind can best serve your dental needs.

Clear Ceramic Braces

Clear ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces in design and size. However, instead of metal brackets and wires, they feature clear brackets that blend in better with your teeth and are less noticeable while retaining their durability, stain resistance, and function. Some even have tooth-colored wires as well. Ceramic braces are well suited for many patients who do not have severe misalignments. Your orthodontist will let you know if you're a good candidate after they examine your teeth.

Damon Metal Braces

Damon metal braces are similar to traditional braces, but instead of having brackets that tighten, Damon braces use a slide mechanism that moves naturally with the teeth as they realign. This makes them more comfortable, better looking and able to provide strong results in a shorter time.

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-litigating braces are similar to traditional braces, but they use special clips and brackets to hold the teeth in place rather than elastic, rubber bands or metal ties. The clips allow greater tooth movement, reducing the discomfort sometimes associated with traditional orthodontics.
