Discover The Benefits Of A Beautifully Aligned Smile

Crooked, misaligned, or overcrowded teeth can make it difficult to take confidence in your smile. You may also experience difficulty chewing and speaking with comfort, along with other potentially painful symptoms.

Fortunately, orthodontic treatments from River Birch Dental can help straighten your smile and improve your oral health. Dr. Vargas is proud to offer braces for patients of any age so they can enjoy the beautiful smile they deserve.

Braces for Every Age Group

Aside from the benefits to your oral health, braces can improve how you feel about your appearance. Even patients who wore braces as a child can have misaligned teeth as adults, as teeth can shift back to their original positions after orthodontic treatment.

Braces apply constant, gentle pressure at strategic points in the mouth. Over time, the teeth will shift into a proper state of alignment. With traditional braces, metal brackets are permanently affixed to the front or back of the teeth with a wire threaded through them. Each month, the wire is tightened to apply pressure and coax the teeth to shift in the coming weeks.

Patients may also need to use bands or other accessories, depending on their personalized treatment plan. Treatment timelines will vary, but the average course of orthodontic treatment lasts about 24 months.

What Conditions Can Braces Correct?

If you have misaligned teeth, braces can help straighten your smile and get your oral health back on track. Dr. Vargas will likely recommend braces to patients struggling with:

  • Overcrowding
  • Teeth that overlap
  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth with gaps
  • Bite problems (overbite, underbite, cross bite, open bite)
