Braces treatment with your local expert
Before we begin your braces treatment, our team will collect digital x-rays, photos, and a model of your mouth to plan a customized treatment based on your specific orthodontic needs. Dr. Johnson will determine how your brackets are placed and will insert a wire to provide customized pressure on all teeth that need to be moved. Through a process called remodeling, this pressure and bone remodeling will slowly move teeth into their correct position. We recommend using a retainer after your braces are removed to prevent your teeth from drifting back toward their old positions.
What your Millville braces expert offers
Today's braces are actually better than ever. We offer a variety of treatment options that are excellent and can correct a variety of oral issues, from simple to complex. Traditional metal braces often work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments might, which can shorten your overall treatment time, and also represent a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. The strength, durability, and affordability of traditional braces are a big part of why they've withstood the test of time and are still the top orthodontic treatment year after year.
The most common type of braces is the tried-and-true traditional metal braces system. These are normally constructed with high-grade stainless steel. Braces work to straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Today's metal braces are more comfortable and also more fun than ever - you have the option of choosing colored elastics to add a punch of personality to your treatment! If you prefer a more subtle approach, we also offer clear or tooth-colored elastics.
Ceramic braces are another great option for straightening your teeth. They work the same way metal braces do, but feature brackets made with a clear ceramic material rather than metal. This treatment is especially popular with our older teen and adult patients because it's such a discrete treatment option. Since these brackets tend to be a bit larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts, we normally won't recommend them for our younger patients. Ceramic braces tend to be used on the upper front teeth more often than the lower teeth.
Using traditional braces, you can often see visible signs of improvement quickly, which can help increase your confidence in both your smile and the orthodontic process!
