If you’d like to straighten your teeth, traditional orthodontics are the time-tested solution for you! Patients have been aligning their teeth with traditional braces for years, and often get amazing results. This option can help you align a wide range of bite misalignments, including open bite, close bite, cross bite, underbites, overbites, and crowded teeth. Thanks to the versatility of the brackets and wires, even complex misalignment problems can be corrected. Our team is highly experienced in offering braces at our Old Greenwich, CT office, and look forward to helping you or a loved one enjoy a straight and healthy smile.
How Traditional Braces Work
Braces work through tension in a flexible metal wire that is held in place through brackets on the teeth. Depending on where the brackets are placed and the tension applied to the wire, our team can position teeth in almost any way, including pulling impacted teeth down or straightening severely crooked teeth. With regular orthodontic visits and proper at-home compliance, you’ll be able to significantly change the appearance and bite of your smile in just a few years, even for difficult cases!
Who Can Benefit From Traditional Braces?
Braces are an excellent option for people of any age, from children to adults. Since there is nothing to remove, the teeth are always being aligned as long as the brackets are firmly attached to the teeth. Many teens have trouble complying with the rules of Invisalign, but with traditional braces, they have a much easier time straightening their teeth. While some adults do not like the appearance of the metal brackets and wires, braces can still give them the look they desire. Modern improvements to the technology have also made braces smaller and more comfortable to wear than they were in the past.
