How Do Traditional Braces Work?
Using traditional metal brackets and arch wires, your orthodontist in Roswell will bond each bracket to the front surfaces of your teeth. Once firmly in place, she will thread the arch wire through the brackets to allow the two components to begin working together to apply just enough pressure for your teeth to shift. The continuous pressure will ensure they move in the right direction.
Throughout your treatment, you will be required to visit Dr. Podray-Donovan to have the arch wire adjusted and tightened, as this will help to move everything into place. If necessary, she will employ additional orthodontic gear to assist with the process, such as elastics, a palate expander, Propel, AcceleDent, and even clear aligners.
What Smile Problems Can Be Treated with Traditional Braces?
When compared against other, more modern orthodontic solutions, traditional braces continue to offer versatility and proven results. Patients of all ages can achieve the smile of their dreams thanks to these metal brackets and wires. No matter the issue, there is a good chance traditional braces can address the issue.
When teeth are sitting too close to each other, it can increase the likeliness for food and debris to become trapped. This makes it more difficult for you to brush and floss adequately, resulting in plaque-causing bacteria to form and eat away at your tooth enamel. This can lead to cavities as well as gum disease. Fortunately, traditional braces can move your teeth to create the necessary space and make it easier to maintain your oral health.
Spaces Between Teeth
Gaps between teeth can do a number on your self-esteem as well as make your smile more vulnerable to gum disease. To avoid the potential for red, swollen, or bleeding oral tissues, and to keep you from hiding behind your hands each time you talk, traditional braces can bring your teeth closer together and eliminate unnecessary space.
Incorrect Bite Alignment
If your teeth are not aligning as they should, traditional braces can be used to correct an overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, and even dental midlines. These common problems can cause everything from excessive wear and tear on your tooth enamel to chronic jaw pain to negatively impacted your facial aesthetics.
Benefits of Traditional Braces
When choosing traditional braces, Dr. Podray-Donovan and our team will go over the array of benefits you can expect to enjoy during and after you’ve completed treatment, some of which include:
- Versatility: Metal braces and wires can fix various orthodontic problems other solutions cannot.
- Customizable: For younger patients, braces can be a fun way to express their personality. Whether it is adding color to brackets and/or elastics, or creating a more subtle look for self-conscious adults, traditional braces can be customized based on your needs and wants.
- Bonded Into Place: The metal brackets that makeup part of your traditional braces are bonded to your teeth, and the arch wire is threading through them, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to “put your braces on” like you would with clear aligner systems.
- Affordability: Traditional braces are known for being much more affordable than other orthodontic solutions (i.e. Invisalign).
Understanding the Cost of Traditional Braces
During your initial consultation with Dr. Podray-Donovan, she will go over what you can expect regarding the cost of your orthodontic treatment. While each patient is different, the cost may not always be the same. It is best if you check with your insurance company to find out if they offer any orthodontic coverage. No matter their stipulations, you can trust that our team will help you get set up with alternative ways to pay for treatment, such as our in-house financing plan.
