Braces Q & A

How can I get straighter teeth?

Fortunately, if you’re unhappy with the look and alignment of your teeth, they aren’t stuck in their current position. Modern orthodontics has allowed for easier and more comfortable ways to move and realign your teeth, so you can achieve a truly beautiful smile.

Many different types of braces and teeth-straightening methods are available at Smile with Style Orthodontics, including traditional metal braces and nearly invisible ClearCorrect aligner trays. Both treatment strategies can gradually move your teeth into position over time.

What are braces?

Braces are special dental appliances used to correct:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Overbites
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Underbites

Metal braces

Traditional metal braces are still a popular choice and involve wire-based appliances. Dr. Buchsieb places metal brackets on your teeth using an adhesive and connects with wires. Traditional braces require periodic tightening to enable a steady pressure to gradually align and straighten your teeth.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces involve composite materials and varying levels of transparency to mimic your natural teeth color. Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces.

ClearCorrect

ClearCorrect aligners are removable, nearly invisible, and specially designed just for you in a dental lab. Dr. Buchsieb takes photos and X-rays of your teeth and typically uses a convenient in-office scanner or impressions to capture the precise shape of your teeth before submitting your prescription to ClearCorrect.

With ClearCorrect, you wear a series of aligners that are customized to apply pressure to your teeth. Dr. Buchsieb checks your progress periodically and you start wearing a new set of aligners every two or three weeks. 

Make sure you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day. You can take them out to brush your teeth and eat. 

The ClearCorrect treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a year or two depending on your unique situation.

What is the best age to get braces?

Braces can help you achieve your dream smile and straighten your teeth at any age. No matter your age, Dr. Buchsieb evaluates your teeth each time, even if you’re only in the office for your routine cleaning.
