If you have misaligned teeth, you may be thinking about getting braces to straighten them. That is an excellent idea! Traditional metal braces have already helped countless individuals to achieve more confident smiles and improve their oral health — it is likely that they can help you as well. On this page, you will learn more about braces, how they work, and how they may benefit you.

Why Choose New Haven Dental Group for Traditional Braces?

How Do Traditional Braces Work?

One of the first steps in the treatment process with traditional braces is when we bond a series of brackets to the fronts of your teeth. Then, we attach a special wire to the brackets. When you visit us for periodic checkups, we will tighten the wire little by little. With each adjustment, your teeth will move closer to their ideal positions. The total amount of time you spend with braces will depend on the extent of your dental misalignment, your age, and other factors.

What Problems Can Be Treated With Traditional Braces?

Traditional braces are capable of treating virtually any dental misalignment issue. Whether you are suffering with mild crookedness or much more severe problems, this treatment might be right for you.

Crowded Teeth

Teeth that are overlapping or too close together pose a threat to your oral health. Traditional braces, along with a few possible extractions, can give your teeth the space they need to thrive.

Spaces Between Teeth

Having too much space between the teeth is embarrassing and uncomfortable. Braces can bring the teeth closer together to improve your smile’s aesthetics, promote your oral health, and give you a more functional bite.

Incorrect Bite Alignment

An open bite, overbite, underbite, or other type of malocclusion (bite problem) can put excess stress on your jaw and cause many other problems. Braces can play a big role in correcting bite alignment and giving you a healthier, more functional mouth.
