Dental braces are a device used in orthodontics to align your teeth into an ideal position. Braces apply gentle yet continuous pressure on your teeth until they move in a specific direction. We have on our dental team a talented orthodontist, Dr. David Adams, who will help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile. At Oceanview Dental, braces are used to treat multiple orthodontic conditions, such as:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Cross bites
In the past, braces were generally suggested for teenagers once all of their permanent teeth had grown in. Today, braces are for anyone who wants a straighter, more beautiful smile! There are many types of braces to fit all of your individual needs. Using braces, in fact, has never been easier. Traditional braces utilize small metal brackets and wires that are bonded to your teeth. Invisible braces, or clear braces, use a series of removable, plastic aligners to straighten teeth in a more discreet way. Invisible braces are especially popular among adult patients. Led by Dr. Adams, our skilled dental team will personalize an orthodontic treatment plan to meet all of you and your family’s needs.
