Every Step Of The Way.
Orthodontic treatments are designed to straighten any crooked or misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatments can also wonderfully enhance one’s self confidence as well as improve speech and bite function in certain cases! Having teeth straightened by our Roseville Dentist is simple to do.
Advancements made in dentistry over recent years allow braces to be applied in a variety of ways. Braces can even be applied discreetly these days. Wire brackets can be applied behind teeth, or be completely invisible. These options are ideal for patients who fear any embarrassment from wearing traditional metal braces over the surface of their teeth.
It is essential to take proper care of your orthodontic appliances. In order to maintain a strong and healthy smile, you must keep up with your morning and night oral hygiene routine. Braces may require a bit of time to get used to. Flossing will feel different. Using an interdental brushes can assist you in eliminating food particles that get caught between braces and teeth. At Rocky Ridge Family Dental, we strongly advocate practicing preventative dentistry.
Braces consists of three fragments that include:
Brackets: small brackets that are attached to the surface of each tooth.
Bonding or band: the adhesive agent that fastens the bracket to the tooth. It acts as the “glue”.
Archwire: a metal wire that connects each bracket to the next.
Here at Rocky Ridge Family Dental, we also offer tailor made removable retainers. Retainers are used once braces are removed in order to hold teeth in their straightened position. Our custom made retainers may also be recommended to manage other minor orthodontic issues.
