Metal braces are one of the most common orthodontic treatments available today. They are typically used by our dentist to improve the alignment of teeth that are crowded, gapped or crooked. But we can also use braces to correct problems with a patient’s bite. These are often referred to as malocclusions and include issues such as a crossbite, open bite, underbite and overbite. In addition, braces can be used in conjunction with jaw surgery to aid in the correct alignment of a patient’s oral structures.
Braces are made up of metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and connected to each other with metal wires and elastic bands. The wire is adjusted by Dr. Holden Correll gradually. This slowly straightens your teeth, guiding them into their ideal positions. Braces can be beneficial to all ages, too, ranging from preteens to adults.
To make sure your orthodontic treatment is going as planned, visit our practice on a regular basis. During these visits, we will make necessary adjustments to your braces and check in with to ensure they feel comfortable and are working effectively.
