Braces for Children and Adults
Adjusting and straightening teeth is best done early. If your child or teenager needs braces, our dentists are here to help you make the right choice by ensuring that you have all the information you need regarding this vital dental procedure. Make sure your child stands out for the right reasons by providing them with a perfect smile that can only be attained through braces.
Your child will receive the highest level of personal care from our dentists and will make sure they understand the procedure of braces and how long they can expect to have them on. The complete treatment usually lasts an average of two years. Despite the teeth becoming straight before the two years is complete, it is best to keep the braces on for the duration of the recommended time than to take them off too soon. If braces are removed too soon, it increases the risk that the teeth may become crooked again. As with any medical procedure, you only want to have to do it once.
Also, our 3M metal braces come with various color band options so that you can show some extra personality with your smile.

For children, teens, and adults, wearing braces shouldn’t be a daunting task. In fact, wearing them has become a near rite of passage in American society.
For various reasons, braces have become an essential part of healthy dental hygiene. Braces ensure the straightness of teeth. Crooked teeth can often cause problems with chewing or removing food particles from the mouth. Creating hard to reach areas around teeth can create plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease.
Adjusting crooked teeth can lead to correcting irregular bite patterns, which can cause undue stress on the crowns of teeth. This stress can cause a breakdown in molars and other teeth, quickly leading to cavities.
Along with assisting in oral hygiene, when teeth are straightened and correctly aligned, it can improve speech as well as improve your personal confidence. Never shy away from business or social settings again.
