Braces are a smart investment in your smile and dental health. They straighten crooked teeth, correct bite and jaw issues, repair gaps between teeth, improve speech and chewing abilities, and give you a healthy, attractive smile to last a lifetime.
If you're considering braces, you might be concerned about the expense. The good news is that insurance frequently covers a large portion of the cost, and many orthodontic practices have payment plans to make braces more affordable.
What conditions can braces treat?
Orthodontic treatment can:
- Help with crowding. Crowding occurs when the teeth are too big for the mouth, leading to difficulties in chewing and speaking.
- Treat any spacing concerns between your teeth. When your smile has spacing issues, It can be challenging to brush and floss correctly. This can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
- Straighten teeth that are misaligned. People with crooked teeth may find it difficult to smile confidently, speak clearly, or chew adequately.
What types of braces are available?
The type of braces best suited to your needs will determine the total treatment cost and the length of treatment time required.
We offer a variety of treatments to make your smile its best, with treatments that include:
- Traditional metal braces. Metal braces are typically made of stainless steel and are the most popular type in the United States.
- Invisalign® clear aligners. Invisalign clear aligners are a popular, modern alternative to traditional braces, thanks to custom-made aligners that discreetly straighten your smile at any age.
- Radiance® clear braces. Clear aligners are one of the most popular options for straightening teeth. Although Invisalign is still the most inconspicuous way to straighten your teeth, Radiance clear braces are an excellent option for people with more complex treatment plans or those who prefer braces to aligners.
