What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the area of dentistry focused on the alignment of your teeth. The on-site orthodontist at Miracle Dental Implants & Orthodontics treats a variety of alignment problems, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Jaw alignment issues

Braces that straighten your teeth are the primary orthodontic treatment.

What are braces?

Braces are devices that fit on the surface of your teeth to gradually move them into a new position. There are several types, including:

Metal braces

Metal braces use wires connected to bands that you wear for months or years. Your orthodontist adjusts the braces at intervals to encourage your teeth to shift into a better position.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are more discreet. The brackets consist of clear or tooth-colored materials, making them less noticeable than braces made entirely of metal.

Invisalign clear aligners

Invisalign aligners are made of clear, durable plastic. The aligners are custom-made to fit securely over your teeth, and you wear each set for several weeks before changing to the next set. Gradually, the aligners move your teeth into their new position without it being obvious you’re undergoing treatment.

People often find that Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than traditional metal braces. They're also easier to look after and removable when you want to eat or clean your teeth.

Which braces are right for me?

To determine the type of braces that are most suitable for you, your orthodontist at Miracle Dental evaluates your teeth and jaw position. They use advanced technology to create an orthodontic treatment program based on their assessment of your teeth and your esthetic goals. 

In many cases, newer kinds of braces, like Invisalign aligners, will be suitable, enabling you to take advantage of their discreet convenience. Sometimes, other kinds of braces might be a better choice. Your orthodontist can explain their recommendation with you in detail.
