Very few people have naturally straight teeth. Straight teeth look brighter because they do not cast shadows and because they are easier to clean and bleach. Straight teeth also function better and are easier for the general dentist or dental specialist to maintain.
Over a period of time, your teeth will shift if constant, gentle pressure is applied. Brackets are bonded to the front surface of each tooth and wires are attached to the brackets with elastic bands. The slight tension on the wire is gently transferred to the teeth through the bracket and the teeth align themselves to the configuration of the wire.
Our Orthodontist Dr. Ferzin Turner offers orthodontic treatment as a fundamental component of the extreme makeovers. For aesthetics, we offer invisible ceramic braces that blend in beautifully with the teeth.
Braces are not just for kids anymore. Teeth can be moved at any age if your gums and bone structure is healthy. We offer braces for different age groups including adults.
Many adults are now opting for orthodontic treatment. They realize that improving the health of their mouth and the attractiveness of their smiles and facial appearances can result in changes in their personal, social and professional lives. The treatment usually last for a period of 12 months to 18 months.
