Braces in Massachusetts and Connecticut

Dental braces can make a lot of difference if your teeth are not normal or aligned correctly and sharp. We can help align misaligned teeth and improve your speaking. Fixing your teeth and braces can give you a solid smile that makes an impression. Treatment generally refers to brackets and wires on your teeth that gradually move them into the correct position. This will also prevent any issues from arising in the first place. Braces can last for months or years, but the results are great. Contact a dentist or orthodontist and see if braces are good for your teeth.

What are dental braces?

Orthodontists use braces to slowly push teeth in the appropriate direction through brackets and wires. We can help to make your teeth look better and function well. Braces can correct dental problems that include teeth being too close to each other or having spaces between them. They also correct overbites and underbites. Furthermore, they adjust for incorrect positions of the higher front teeth against the lower ones, referred to as crossbites. Our team of experienced orthodontists would be able to design a unique treatment plan that will target your various needs and goals. If you want to know what brace choices are available for your case, please call us today.

How do braces work to straighten teeth?

Braces apply gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into their desired positions. Braces consist of brackets glued to the teeth and connected by wires or bands.

Here’s how braces work to straighten teeth:

Brackets: The brackets are cemented onto teeth with a special glue. They support the ropes and bands.

Archwires: Archwires are inserted into the brackets and pressed on teeth to assist in their desired movement. The specialist who fills the teeth will regularly adjust the wires in the mouth to align them as they should.

Bands: Bands can secure archwires near the bigger teeth, known as molars. They are commonly placed on the back teeth to reinforce braces.

Elastics or rubber bands: These small groups could use greater force on certain teeth or how the jaw aligns. They connect to the hooks of brackets and assist in moving teeth where we want them.

Bone remodeling: As teeth move, the bone next to them changes, changing shape to accommodate the new teeth’ locations. We ensure that the effect persists and remains powerful.

Retainers: Sometimes, when the braces are removed, a retainer is used to hold teeth in their new positions and prevent them from reverting.

Braces are generally replaced quite often to bring teeth into the proper places gradually. So, the amount of time spent wearing braces depends on how severe your teeth are out; therefore, every mouth heals differently.

How Much Does it Cost to Get Braces?

The cost of braces may vary depending on a few factors. Their normal price may also depend on where you live and the severity of your case – meaning how serious it is taken to be. What insurance coverage do you have, and from which material brace are made? If you are in Massachusetts or Connecticut and have braces on your mind, then visit us to learn how much this alternative will usually cost. We make short and easy presentations, so you know how much braces cost. This way, you can make the best choice for yourself. Contact us now for further information!

How Long Does it Take to Get Braces?

Installing braces usually takes anywhere from one to two hours on average. There is no unusual discomfort after the procedure, which generally passes within a week. Any discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. If continuous soreness persists, however, you should contact and receive a consultation with one of our dentists.
In general, patients anticipate their desired outcomes within one to two years after the braces are set in place. Period, regular adjustments and check-ups will be scheduled to see progress made so that necessary changes can be effected on the braces.
Our professional team will give you comprehensive guidelines for managing braces and treating pain throughout treatment.
We will always have our dentists ready to give you advice and help should there be any issues or queries during treatment with braces. We are aiming to assist you in accomplishing your desired outcome and creating a perfect, healthy smile that will last for life.

Will I require retainers once my braces are removed?

We are often asked about retainers by patients after the removal of braces. Retainers are also an important tool that should be used along with braces to keep the results gained from their use.
It’s also imperative to wear retainers, as your orthodontist advises after removing braces. Retainers aid in keeping your teeth within their new positions and stop them from going back to the previous ones. Braces are removed, but teeth on their own want to shift again; retainers ensure they return to the proper alignment.
Your case and orthodontist recommendations will dictate the type of retainer you need and how long they should be worn. There are different kinds of retainers, such as removable and fixed retainers. Removable retainers are often worn at night, and fixed ones have to be attached to the back of your teeth, where they provide ongoing support.
Retainer cost is also variable depending on the type and material used. Detailed information about the types of retainers recommended for you and their price tags will be provided by Our Gorgeous Smiles Dental team.
