Surrey Straight Wire Braces
Straight wire braces are traditional metal braces, used in orthodontics to line up teeth and remedy a person’s functional bite and cosmetic appearance. There are many types of incorrect bite positioning, such as underbites, overbites, crossbones, and openbites, or misaligned teeth. Because teeth have an essential function in our physical health, making corrections to alignment is extremely beneficial.
Without treatment, orthodontic problems can result in dental cavities, gum disease, bone loss, speech impairment, unnecessary tooth loss, and other dental issues. At our Surrey dental practice, straight wire braces use gentle, constant pressure to move teeth into their proper positions gradually. Because they are a semi-permanent appliance, they work around the clock, including during sleep. The result is a beautiful, healthy, sensational smile and an enhanced self-image.
The phase of treatment for our Surrey straight wire braces typically lasts between 12-24 months, depending on the amount of tooth motion necessary to align the teeth and to establish a proper bite. It is important to remember that treatment time is approximated. Our dentists have certain treatment goals in mind and will continue treatment until these goals have been achieved, consulting with you each step of the way. Patient cooperation is the best way to keep on track with your treatment. Be sure to take care of your braces and to wear your rubber bands as instructed and we will achieve your desired smile in no time!
You are never ever too old to enhance your smile. While braces are generally used on kids and teenagers, they can also be used on adults. If you have jagged teeth or you don’t like your smile, come in for an examination to see exactly what treatment options are possible.
