A beautiful, white, bright smile can still a room, turn heads, and make jaws hit the floor. Unfortunately, not everyone has the “perfect” smile. Many teens and adults are stuck with crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth. Understandably, many are self-conscious about their smiles, because of the pattern their teeth formed. Instead of feeling embarrassed of your teeth, why not elevate your smile and achieve the perfection that filled your dreams? With the phenomenal care and technique of the Avanti Dentistry team, you can finally feel comfortable showing off your ideal grin.
Are You Talking About Braces?
We are talking about braces. Now, don’t let the idea scare you away. With the latest trends in the dental world, braces are not the metal face-gear they once were. When you come in for your consultation, or doctors will examine your mouth, map it out, and make a mold. Our team will then decide how our five-star orthodontic treatment can help you. If you decided to proceed, we will answer any questions you have and fit you for braces. Of course, we will provide you with an estimate of the time it will take to complete the treatment.
How Does It Work?
Small metal squares, called brackets, are bonded to the front of the teeth. The brackets act like handles, holding wires that connect each one. The wires apply continuous, fixed pressure to the teeth over a period of time, which forces them to slowly move into the proper position. If a very specific movement is needed for a tooth, or a group of teeth, spacers or springs may be fastened to the wires or teeth to further push or pull in a certain direction. Periodically, you will check in with your dentist or orthodontist to make sure the progression is on track, and if needed, the doctor will adjust the wires, spacers, springs, etc.
