Why Choose New Haven Dental Group for Traditional Braces?

How Do Traditional Braces Work?

Traditional braces consist of brackets that are bonded to the teeth and a wire that connects the brackets. As the braces get tightened little by little at periodic appointments, they apply gentle pressure to the teeth and gradually move them into their proper positions. In many cases, braces work alongside other orthodontic appliances in order to ensure the best results possible. The average total treatment time with braces is 18 – 36 months.

What Smile Problems Can Be Treated With Traditional Braces?

Traditional braces are a versatile treatment that is able to correct most types of dental alignment, from the mild to the severe.

Crowded Teeth

Teeth that overlap can pose challenges for oral hygiene, negatively affect occlusion (how the bite works), and pose an aesthetic problem. Traditional braces, along with possible extractions, are often able to correct crowded teeth.

Spaces Between Teeth

Gapped teeth may make chewing and speaking more difficult than they need to be — and that is in addition to their unattractive nature. Braces may be able to reposition the teeth and close those unsightly spaces.

Incorrect Bite Alignment

An overbite, underbite, or crossbite can endanger the health of teeth and lead to problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Traditional braces often play a key role in addressing such issues and contributing to a harmonious bite.
