Before and After
No matter which type of braces you choose, you’ll find that our affordable braces options will successfully align your smile with dramatic results. Our Carson City orthodontists are experts at helping you achieve a beautifully straight smile regardless of your age or the severity of your misalignment. Just take a look at some of the result you might expect from braces:
How Do Braces Work?
All types of braces have the same ultimate goal: to align the teeth for a straighter smile, stronger bite, and better overall function. Basically, braces are handles that are placed on the permanent teeth in a specific order. These handles are then used to move the teeth into ideal positions in relation to each other, your face and jaw. Braces can be used on patients of all ages, but are most commonly seen in teenagers and young adults.
Fix Crooked or Misaligned Teeth
There are several reasons why your teeth can become misaligned. Maybe the growth of your wisdom teeth crowded your mouth, or simple genetic factors caused your teeth to grow in at less-than-perfect alignments. Braces from Absolute Dental work to correct these misalignments by pulling or pushing them slowly into a more ideal position. This creates a more uniform and comfortable smile you can feel confident about every day.
Correct Overbites & Underbites
When the top and bottom rows of your teeth do not align properly or comfortably, you may have an overbite or underbite. These types of misalignments can affect how patients bite, chew, and talk, causing long-term discomfort if not corrected. Our Carson City orthodontists can apply reformative techniques using braces that help to align the teeth and jaw, effectively eliminating this issue.
Improve Overall Oral Health
When teeth are not properly aligned, other health issues can be the result. There could be hard-to-reach places where plaque and tartar start to build up, increasing the risk of cavities. Patients may also have bad breath, problems with teeth grinding, and lowered self-confidence. Braces will correct these issues simply by aligning the teeth. Consult your orthodontist if you suspect your teeth misalignment may be causing these oral health problems.
Am I a Good Candidate for Braces?
Braces are the perfect solution for many of our patients who are unhappy with the look and function of their teeth. If you’re considering braces to improve your smile, you’re the ideal candidate if you:
- Are in good general health
- Have no significant dental issues
- Would like to improve overcrowding
- Want to close gaps between your teeth
- Want to fix crooked teeth or misalignments
- Need to correct an overbite or underbite
- Are willing to play an active role in your treatment
When patients do not follow instructions from their orthodontists, which may include avoiding certain foods, attending follow-up appointments, and replacing Invisalign® trays immediately after eating, the length of treatment may be longer than usual.
This is why our caring orthodontists will give you all the tools and resources you need to make your treatment a success.
What are the Estimated Financial Costs?
As a rule of thumb, the cost of braces will vary based on the severity of the problem you’re addressing and how long it takes to correct. They may even be much more affordable depending on the type of braces you are using (i.e. metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, etc.)
Rest assured that braces may cost much less than you think! Our orthodontic specialists can help you determine the right path to ensure that you get the results you need. If you’re ready to find out more, make an appointment at the location nearest you to get on the path to straighter teeth!
FAQs About Braces at Absolute Dental
It’s important to our orthodontists that you feel comfortable and confident while wearing your braces! For this reason, we offer a variety of colors for metal braces, including blue, purple, green, red, yellow, pink, magenta, and many kinds of neon colors too! You can mix and match any combination of several colors, to help you be expressive with your smile! We even offer clear bands if you prefer a more neutral look.
Additionally, you can always ask your Absolute Dental location in Carson City what colors are available ahead of time if you are looking for something specific.
There may be some initial soreness and mild discomfort with some types of braces, but it will quickly pass as your teeth and mouth adjust to the equipment. Braces align the teeth by applying a slight amount of pressure. This pressure is often felt for a few days after the wire is tightened (metal or clear braces) or a new plastic tray is inserted (invisible braces). You should not expect severe pain or discomfort while wearing braces, so consult with your orthodontist immediately if this occurs.
In general, braces are worn for a period of time to correct misalignments of the teeth while a retainer is worn after braces are removed to ensure your teeth do not move back into their misaligned position. Retainers are removable and are often only worn at night to prevent the teeth from shifting. Retainers will help to stabilize the teeth after the desired results are reached with braces. The tissue in the mouth will eventually conform to the new alignment of your teeth, so retainers are only worn temporarily following the removal of your braces.
The answer really depends on which type of braces you choose, the patient’s age, the severity of the misalignment, and patient cooperation. On average, you can expect to wear metal or ceramic braces anywhere between 18 to 36 months to reach the desired results. Invisible braces, such as Invisalign, are generally worn for 12 to 24 months because they are an excellent option for less severe dental misalignments. Again, how well the patient cooperates plays a crucial role in how long the orthodontic treatment will be.
