Orthodontics Q&A

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the dental specialty focused on correcting the position of teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment at Ace Dental Specialties often consists of braces, or metal brackets and wires, that slowly move crooked or misaligned teeth into their ideal position over time. Ace Dental Specialties also offers clear Invisalign aligners to perfect your beautiful smile.

What are the benefits of braces?

Some of the many benefits you can experience after undergoing orthodontics treatment at Ace Dental Specialties include:

  • Straighter teeth
  • Elimination of gaps and crowding
  • Better-positioned bite pattern
  • Easier cleaning
  • Improved overall oral health
  • Renewed self-confidence

Getting braces is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that produces superior, cosmetically pleasing results.

Am I a good candidate for braces?

Your Ace Dental Specialties provider lets you know if you’re a good candidate for braces after examining your teeth and gums. They review your oral health history, discuss your desired outcome, and take dental X-rays to tailor a personalized orthodontics treatment just for you. Unless you have severely crooked teeth or misalignment, Invisalign might also be an option.

What should I expect when getting braces?

When getting braces, you relax in a comfortable dental chair while your dentist bonds a bracket to each tooth requiring treatment. They allow the dental adhesive to dry, securing the brackets in place long term. Your dentist attaches a wire, and rubber bands as needed, to each bracket and tightens the wires periodically until your teeth reach their ideal position.

How long will I have to wear braces?

Every patient is different, which is why the time it takes to complete orthodontics treatment at Ace Dental Specialties varies. Your treatment might last anywhere from 18 months to two years or longer. 

Care for your braces by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing daily, and not chewing on sticky foods, ice, or other hard objects. See your dentist at least every six months for professional teeth cleanings and dental exams.

Don’t live with imperfect, crooked teeth when simple orthodontics treatments at Ace Dental Specialties can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Schedule an appointment over the phone or online to find out if braces are right for you.
