At Landry Family and Orthodontic Dentistry, we provide traditional metal braces to help you straighten your teeth, correct your bite and achieve a healthier and more beautiful smile. Thanks to advances in orthodontics, braces are now more comfortable and effective than ever before!
Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment available, and are the “tried-and-true” method for correcting misaligned teeth and bad bites. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires and bands. Braces are used to correct orthodontic problems such as:
- Crowded and crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Malocclusion (bad bites, such as crossbites, open bites, underbites and overbites)
When you receive braces, our dentist will bond the brackets to the front surfaces of your teeth. The brackets will then be connected to each other through the use of the metal wire and bands. As the wire is adjusted, the braces gently reposition your teeth into the correct places in your mouth.
You will meet with our dentist regularly throughout treatment to ensure that your braces are adjusted correctly and that your treatment is progressing as planned. We strongly encourage you to practice good oral hygiene throughout your entire treatment. Brushing and flossing regularly are more important than ever while wearing braces in order to keep your mouth free from tooth decay, gum disease and other problems. Our team will be happy to provide instructions on the best ways to brush and floss while wearing braces, as well as any other tips and tricks for life with braces.
