Our braces patients can apply health funds or enjoy flexible payment plans on every treatment.

Benefits of Braces

When teeth are crooked or crowded, it can interfere with jaw alignment and oral hygiene. By correcting tooth alignment with braces, it’s possible to promote a healthier and more attractive smile. People with significantly misaligned teeth are more likely to experience

  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • TMJ concerns
  • Irregular tooth wear
  • Dental emergencies
  • Broken dental work

Who is a Candidate for Braces?

Adults and children alike may be ideal candidates for braces if there are concerns of crooked, crowded or gapped teeth. The average case takes anywhere from 6-24 months to complete, depending on the individual. With earlier intervention, we can limit the extent of bite concerns later on.

Depending on your age and bite concerns, treatment options include:

  • Traditional Braces: Conventional bracket-and-wire systems are effective for all ages of patients.
  • Clear Aligners: Removable orthodontic systems like Invisalign trays or ClearCorrect are a discreet alternative to braces. Adults and teens make excellent candidates.

Early Intervention for Children

Around the ages of 6-8 is the perfect time to assess your child’s oral development. At this stage, we can evaluate eruption patterns of their adult teeth and screen for bite discrepancies before they start.

Sometimes, early orthodontic intervention is necessary-especially if there is premature tooth loss, an impacted tooth or visible crowding.

Early orthodontic intervention helps correct growth patterns and tooth eruption while your child is still growing. That way if they need braces, the length and complexity of their treatment are kept to a minimum.
