Thousands of kids around the United States need braces. Braces are an effective orthodontic treatment for crowded or crooked teeth; they also correct bites or jaw misalignment. Knowing when your child needs braces isn’t always easily determined. Thankfully, the team at Steele Creek Orthodontics can help.
At Steele Creek Orthodontics, we provide orthodontic care for patients of all ages, including braces for teens. We use the latest orthodontic technology to straighten your teeth faster and more effectively. If your teenager has lost all their baby teeth and shows crooked or crowded permanent teeth, schedule an orthodontic appointment.
Are you nervous about wearing braces as an adult? You may feel a little self-conscious about having metal or colored brackets on your teeth and how the mechanism affects your smile. However, roughly 20% of orthodontic patients are adults, and they can tell you from experience that the treatment time can lead to a better bite and prevent further dental concerns.
Braces are a common corrective treatment plan for both kids and adults looking for straighter and healthier teeth. However, it’s common for patients to have questions and concerns before and during treatment. Below are some frequently asked questions about braces that we receive at Steele Creek Orthodontics.
When you have braces, it’s very important to brush and floss after every meal in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your orthodontic treatment.
