Traditional Braces

Crooked teeth can be a source of frustration, impacting not only your appearance but also your self-esteem. This self-consciousness can affect how you talk and feel when photographed. Fortunately, there is a solution to correct crooked teeth and address related dental concerns like bite alignment. BrightCraft Dental and Laser provides traditional metal braces, offering patients the opportunity to enhance their dental aesthetics and rectify bite issues.

What are traditional braces?

As in all cases of dental intervention, the first step is consulting a dentist.

Traditional braces are the most widely used orthodontic treatment method. Comprising metal brackets adhered to your front teeth and interconnected by wires, they effectively address a variety of dental issues. Whether you have crooked or misaligned teeth, overcrowding, noticeable gaps, protruding teeth, or bite misalignment, traditional braces offer a proven solution that yields lasting improvements.

Once affixed to your teeth, these braces apply pressure to specific areas of your bite, gradually repositioning your teeth. Through periodic adjustments and wire replacements with progressively sturdier ones, your teeth straighten, and your jaws align. This meticulous approach ensures a durable and enduring correction.

How do traditional braces work?

The process of getting traditional braces commences with an initial consultation to determine their suitability for your specific needs. During this visit, we perform a thorough examination and gather essential information through X-rays, impressions, and mouth photographs.

Upon returning for the subsequent appointment, your teeth should be clean and free of cavities. This is when we affix the braces to your teeth, securely adhering the brackets with specialized glue. We attach wires, elastics, or other metal components like bands, strategically positioning them to facilitate tooth movement.

Throughout the treatment, regular check-ups are necessary to monitor progress and make any required adjustments. The braces remain in place until treatment completion. BrightCraft Dental and Laser utilizes high-quality stainless steel brackets and wires. Notably, we offer a variety of color options for the elastic bands, enabling you to personalize the appearance of your braces.

How long do I wear braces?

If you plan on wearing braces to fix a dental issue, it will take quite some time before you can see the desired results. How long you need to wear braces varies between people depending on their goals and oral health condition but the average duration is anywhere from 12 months to 30 months. Once the braces are removed, you will need to wear a retainer to ensure the teeth don’t move back to their original position.

Do braces hurt?

Braces typically do not cause pain, particularly when applied by skilled professionals. However, it’s common to experience some initial tenderness around your gums and cheeks after the procedure. Over time, as you acclimate to braces, these sensations should diminish.

While waiting for this adjustment period, we may recommend pain relievers to alleviate any discomfort. It’s important to remember that braces, though they may initially feel like an inconvenience, ultimately yield a beautiful new smile, underscoring their worth.
