Why Choose New Haven Dental Group for Traditional Braces?

How Do Traditional Braces Work?

Traditional braces use brackets and wires to move the teeth. The brackets are bonded to the teeth, and a wire connects the brackets. Over time, the braces apply consistent, gentle pressure to the teeth to reposition them. In many cases, braces work alongside other orthodontic appliances to ensure to the best possible final results. The treatment time varies from patient to patient, but on average, braces take about 18 – 36 months to complete their job.

What Smile Problems Can Be Treated With Traditional Braces?

Traditional metal braces are a versatile treatment that can address most types of dental misalignment, including both mild and severe issues.

Crowded Teeth

Overlapping, crowded teeth can make oral hygiene a challenge, and they can interfere with occlusion (bite). They also negatively affect facial aesthetics. Traditional braces, potentially along with extractions, are able to relieve overcrowding.

Spaces Between Teeth

Spaces between the teeth can make speaking and chewing more difficult than they should be — and that is in addition to their unattractive appearance. Braces may be able to move the teeth and close those unsightly gaps.

Incorrect Bite Alignment

Various types of malocclusion (bad bite) can put the health of the teeth at risk and even lead to problems with the jaw joint. Traditional braces are often able to correct many kinds of malocclusion, including overbite, underbite, and crossbite.
