Conventional Braces

At Riverbend Family Dentistry, we offer both conventional orthodontics (metal braces) and Invisalign. A straight smile not only looks good, but enhances your entire oral health. Straight teeth allow for better cleansing leading to a decrease in the potential for cavities and gum disease. Also, a properly aligned bite will maintain jaw joint health and decrease tooth wear due to grinding and clenching.

 

Am I A Candidate?

Most patients are a candidate for metal braces. We offer a free orthodontic consultation to discuss if this is the best treatment option for you.

 

What Should I Expect at My Visit?

At your consultation, we will start by taking an iTero® 3D digital scan and photos. After reviewing your scan and photos, your dentist will discuss the ideal orthodontic option for proper tooth movement, as well as length of treatment and estimated costs. 

If you would like to move forward with the proposed treatment then your delivery appointment will be scheduled to place your braces. Occasional visits will be necessary for adjustments and movement tracking. Following treatment, your attachments or brackets will be removed and any final adjustments to your bite, tooth shape, and polishing will be completed.

Traditional Orthodontic Case

This patient was not happy with her asymmetric and “gummy” smile.  Using traditional metal braces, we were able to intrude (push in) the teeth and gums on the right side creating a beautiful smile. Patient completed orthodontic treatment within 1 year.
