Let’s face it, traditional braces have a bad reputation for being painful and noticeable.
They are actually not as bad as you’ve been led to believe, which is why they are a common treatment option for a variety of bite and alignment issues. They are useful for correcting overcrowded, tilted, or rotated teeth, as well as poorly aligned bites.
An arch wire is held in place by brackets that are attached to your teeth. Adjustments to the wire are made over the next 12 to 24 months to gradually move your teeth into their ideal positions.
At Gateway Dentistry, we serve patients of all ages looking to improve their smile with our dental clinic in Kanata.
You will start with an orthodontic consultation to develop your personalized treatment plan. To map the movement of your teeth, photos, X-rays, and impressions are taken. You will return to our office to have brackets placed. Elastics are wrapped around the arch wire and attached to the brackets.
Dr. Saran at Gateway Dentistry, will see you every few weeks to monitor the movement of your teeth and make the necessary adjustments. Your treatment will finish before you know it, and you will have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.
