If you are looking for traditional metal braces or clear braces for your teeth in Elk Grove and Sacramento, look no further than New Dental Images.
Many people want to position and straighten their teeth. Dental braces are used to straighten teeth based on a person’s bite. Misaligned teeth, underbites and overbites are common dental problems. At New Dental Images in Elk Grove and Sacramento, we use the proper orthodontic equipment that will improve the individual outline of the teeth and jaws.
Our Elk Grove and Sacramento orthodontists use customized dental treatments and high-tech tools such as robots, 3D images and software. This type of treatment shortens the treatment time and improves the end results.
There are many different types of braces available. Traditional or metal braces are the most popular. They are used to help adults and children. Brackets are attached to the front of the teeth, and the molars are fitted with bands that surround them. It is still possible to eat and drink with the supports on, but it is necessary to stop consuming certain foods that get stuck in the devices, like gum.
The length of treatment with traditional dental braces varies from as short as six months to about 2 1/2 years. The time needed depends on how severe the issues are that are being corrected. We always try to make sure that the very best results are accomplished for our patients in the shortest possible time and with the least amount of discomfort possible.
Metal braces are made of stainless steel and sometimes combined with titanium. Ties and self-ligating brackets are used to hold the structure in place. Movement is made whenever the wire applies force to the teeth and brackets. The various bands and springs are used in metal braces to carry out movements in certain directions. The rubbing contact of the wire and bracket is decreased with the self-ligating brackets, which creates therapeutic effects.
In addition to traditional braces, now there are clear, removable devices that move teeth slowly. New Dental Images is an authorized provider of Invisalign (clear braces). We invite you to explore your options and see if clear aligners like these would work best for your lifestyle.
Whatever type of dental braces you decide to go with, our dental professionals will be there to assist you. We look forward to helping you get your teeth straightened out so you can enjoy that beautiful smile.
