Braces Q & A

What are braces?

Braces are a type of orthodontic treatment that uses wires and metal brackets to shift your teeth into their ideal position over time. Braces can dramatically improve the function and look of your smile, giving you the confidence you desire.

What are the benefits of braces?

The many benefits you can expect after receiving braces at Wellness Dental Care include:

  • Better bite
  • Straighter teeth
  • Easier teeth cleaning
  • No more tooth gaps
  • Aesthetically pleasing smile
  • Self-confidence

Getting braces is a simple process that offers drastic improvements in the appearance of your smile. 

Are braces right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for braces at Wellness Dental Care, your dentist reviews your oral health history with you, examines your teeth and gums, and takes dental X-rays if needed. They discuss your desired results and personalize an orthodontics treatment that best matches your needs and preferences. 

You may need treatment for dental decay or tooth extraction before undergoing orthodontics treatment with braces.

Wellness Dental Care also offers Invisalign® treatment, which uses a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth without wires or brackets.

What happens when getting braces?

The process of getting braces is a simple, painless procedure. Your dentist strategically glues metal brackets to your teeth and attaches wires to each bracket. They then tighten the wires, allowing your teeth to slowly shift into their ideal position. 

As directed by your dentist, schedule periodic follow-up appointments so they can monitor your progress and tighten wires as needed to continue straightening your teeth. 

What should I expect after getting braces?

After you complete braces treatment, which could last about one to two years (or longer in some cases), your dentist removes the wires and brackets from your teeth. 

You might receive a permanent or removable retainer to keep your teeth in their new position indefinitely. Follow your provider’s instructions to ensure the best results, and see the Wellness Dental Care team every six months for routine dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
