Braces Q & A

Am I a candidate for braces?

Braces shift your teeth in a straight, uniform manner and give you a proper bite. Braces might be right for you if you have:

  • An overbite
  • An underbite
  • An open bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • A speech impediment

Today’s technology offers methods of orthodontic treatments that can straighten your teeth in less time with more visual appeal. 

During your consultation with our experts, we work with you to determine what type of braces will likely provide the best solution based upon your unique anatomy and desired outcomes.

What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners made for teens and adults who want straight teeth with a convenient option. 

Our team creates your aligners from an original mold of your teeth. These clear aligners then fit over your teeth and slowly shift them. You can remove them while you eat, brush your teeth, and floss. For the maximum benefit, you should wear them 20-22 hours a day.

You typically move on to a new set of trays every two weeks, and our team evaluates your progress every 6-8 weeks. Depending on the severity of movement necessary to achieve the results you want, your treatment can take about a year or less.

What are Six Month Smiles braces?

If your smile only needs minor adjustments, then Six Month Smiles might be the right choice for you.

Six Month Smiles is a system that features clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, focusing on your front teeth. They gently move your teeth into a straight position within 4-12 months, depending on your orthodontic needs.

Do I need a retainer after wearing braces?

To maintain your straight teeth and a confident smile, our team fits you for a removable retainer to keep your teeth in their desired position. This custom-made appliance helps your newly aligned teeth settle into your gums and jawbone. 

Our care team may recommend that you wear your retainer at all times for several months. After that time, we may determine that you wear it only at night. 

Your retainer can last a lifetime if you keep it in its case when you’re not wearing it and clean it well by brushing it or soaking it in a recommended cleaning product.
