No matter your age or gender, having straight teeth has long been a desire of many. From kids to adults, the desire for perfect teeth has been around for centuries.
Orthodontic treatment has come a long way. For years, braces have been used to correct crooked teeth, jaw alignment issues and more dental conditions.
Aesthetics are an integral part of dentistry, ensuring your treatment not only feels comfortable but looks fantastic too. When you come in for your appointment with our orthodontist, they’ll perform a comprehensive evaluation of the aesthetics of your teeth and face; this includes looking at micro- and nano-aesthetic features like texture, shade, and light. This allows us to craft a personalized treatment plan that gives you optimal results.
After your teeth separators (brackets) are placed, you may experience discomfort or pain from the forces exerted on your mouth. It’s normal for lips and gums to take some getting used to this force, but eventually it will lessen as confidence grows with your smile. To help with this discomfort, try placing orthodontic wax over any wire that pokes you or causes cheek discomfort. If that doesn’t work, have a trusted adult use sterilized tweezers gently push the wire back into its bracket – if insured under extras part of policy!
