At Dental Health Associates, P.A., orthodontic treatment with braces is highly individualized. Your treatment plan is unique and specific to you. The type of orthodontics worn and the length of time that they are worn depend on several factors, including the complexity of your bite problems.
There are a variety of orthodontic types to choose from. Today’s braces are more discreet than ever. Braces can be metal, clear plastic, colored plastic, or both.
Our orthodontists are certified to provide the orthodontic treatment of your choice, including Invisalign® aligners.
What to Expect
Traditional orthodontics (braces) are attached to teeth with a bonding agent. Your orthodontist will periodically monitor your progress and adjust your braces as needed. You may experience temporary discomfort after your braces are adjusted.
Be sure to follow your orthodontist’s instructions while wearing your braces. Carefully clean and floss your teeth to avoid tooth decay. Avoid chewing on sticky foods, such as gum and candy, and hard or crunchy foods to prevent breakage. Wear a mouthguard during sports to prevent injuring your lips during impact.
When the desired result is achieved, the braces are removed from your teeth. Your orthodontist will make another mold of your teeth. This mold is used to create your retainer. Retainers are removable plastic pieces that are worn for various periods of time to help your teeth retain their new alignment after your braces are removed.
