Do you have crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth? Perhaps you have big front teeth which tend to stick out, causing you to cover your mouth when you smile?
Braces will allow us to reposition your teeth and align them into an aesthetically pleasing state. By using a series of devices and applications over an extended period of time, braces may be just what you need to get that optimal smile for life!
Your dentist will begin by creating a series of records including dental impressions, photo images and two different types of X-rays. These preliminary records, based on your teeth, will enable your dentist to calculate precisely the measurements needed, to formulate an individual treatment plan for you.
Quite often, in the case of crowded teeth, a tooth will need to be removed to gain space. Obviously, you will be informed if this is the case. Braces are usually worn for a period of one to two years. If however, only minor corrections are required, then five to six months could be sufficient
