Conventional Braces

At Riverbend Family Dentistry, we offer both conventional orthodontic care (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.



Cases that work best for conventional braces include:

  • Crossbite: One or more of your top row teeth aren’t aligning properly with your bottom row of teeth.
  • Open bite: The top and bottom rows of your front teeth don’t align as they should.
  • Overbite: Your top front row of teeth extend beyond your bottom row of front teeth.
  • Overjet: Your upper front row of teeth protrude outward.
  • Underbite: Your top row of teeth sit behind your bottom row of teeth rather than in front of them.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 to Expect during an Orthodontic Care 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 the 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.

To learn more about conventional braces and other treatment orthodontic care options available at Riverbend Family Dentistry, schedule your complimentary Smile Design. Your Smile Design will include an iTero® 3D digital scan and orthodontic treatment consultation.  Call 561-701-9700 to get scheduled today!
