Candidates for Braces

Patients (children or adults) might be a candidate for braces if they’re dealing with any of the following:
  • Overbite – Occurs when the top front teeth extend too far over the bottom front teeth
  • Underbite – Occurs when the bottom front teeth extend too far over the top front teeth
  • Crossbite – Occurs when the upper teeth come down more than just slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting down
  • Crowding – Occurs when there is not enough space in the mouth to accommodate all the teeth
  • Gaps / Spaces Between Teeth – Occurs as a result of an accident, injury, lost teeth, or extractions that leave open spaces or cause teeth to shift

What to Expect

While the promise of straight teeth is exciting, it’s important to understand the scope of treatment before a patient fully commits. Care begins by examining the mouth to determine the best course of care, which may include traditional metal braces clear aligners, or Six Month Smiles®.

Then, discussions will begin relating to all options available so that there aren’t any surprises. The full financial cost of care will also be presented. As braces generally take months or years to finish treatment, the practice is happy to accept payment plans that can be discussed at a consultation.

When treatment begins, the dentist will cement brackets to the teeth and connect them with a wire that will bring them into proper alignment over the course of the care plan. Every few weeks, the patient will visit the practice so the wire can be tightened. Each time this happens, a beautiful smile gets closer.
