Braces By Our Cleveland Orthodontist At A2Z Dental & Braces
Healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment are the foundation of good oral health. Braces work to improve dental health by aligning and straightening teeth, as crooked or crowded teeth are hard to clean and can result in gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. At A2Z Dental & Braces in Cleveland, TX, children, teens and adults can achieve their best smile through our comprehensive orthodontic services.
Functional Benefits of Braces
Orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints. These can lead to chronic headaches and face or neck pain. Whether removable or bonded directly to your teeth, metal, ceramic or plastic braces work by placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction to slowly move teeth into a corrected position. As your bite transitions to the proper alignment your dentition will be relieved from excessive wear and discomfort.
Our orthodontic options include:
Traditional Braces - Metal braces are a tried and true orthodontic option to move your bite into a predictable position. Standard braces use metal wires, brackets and bands to move teeth into proper alignment, achieving a healthier, cosmetic smile.
ClearCorrect – The cosmetic alternative uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently shift teeth into the desired position. The clear aligners give adults and teens a cosmetic smile during treatment for those who are apprehensive to wearing metal braces for an improved smile.
Phase Orthodontics - Phase 1 braces are used to intercept problems in children between the ages of 7-10. Depending on the condition of your teeth, phase one braces may consist of retainers, expanders, spacers and sometimes metal braces to correct and hold adult teeth until the remaining secondary teeth erupt. Phase 2 braces begin once they have lost all of their baby teeth. This final brace treatment will continue the process of moving adult teeth into the proper place.
