Braces Q & A

Should I consider braces? 

If you’re not satisfied with your smile, braces can vastly enhance the appearance of bite issues, spacing problems, and crooked teeth. The wearing of braces is widespread and helps enhance the smiles of millions of men, women, and teens. Beyond the cosmetic reasons, you should consider braces for health reasons. 

It’s important to remember that straighter teeth are much easier to keep clean and healthy than crooked teeth. Misaligned teeth are far more likely to have buildups of plaque around the gum line, no matter how well you brush and floss. You’re never too old to use braces to improve your smile and oral health. Straightening crooked teeth accomplishes this and can give you a boost in confidence. The team at K Street Dental & Orthodontic Group offers different options to accommodate your specific circumstances. 

What types of braces are offered? 

At K Street Dental & Orthodontic Group, the team offers a variety of options when it comes to braces, including: 

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Self-ligating braces
  • Clear braces
  • Lingual braces
  • Invisalign®

Each option provides unique benefits. For example, Invisalign®, clear ceramic braces, and lingual braces are more discreet and allow you to smile with confidence during orthodontic treatment. Traditional braces can be affixed with colorful brackets, which may be fun for younger patients. 

How long do I need to wear braces?

The specifics of orthodontic treatment vary widely. Depending on factors such as the state of your smile, your age, your desired results, and the type of braces you opt for, treatment takes anywhere from 1-3 years. However, in some cases, treatment with braces only takes a few months. 

The team at K Street Dental & Orthodontic Group discusses the specifics of your treatment plan with you during an initial consultation. This helps you gain a better understanding of what to expect with your orthodontic treatment.
