Many of our patients are self conscious about their smile but don’t want to go through the hassle of wearing braces.

What types of braces are there?
Modern Metal Braces are smaller and far less noticeable than the clunky, wire-frame braces that most adults remember seeing as kids. New technology, such as heat activated wires help straighten teeth more quickly and painlessly than years ago.
The next step up from metal brackets are Ceramic Braces. Ceramic braces maintain the same general technology as traditional braces, but are made with a clear or matching tooth colored ceramic brackets, which appear far less noticeable to the patient and to those around them.
Lingual Braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except they are installed on the backside of the teeth, rather than in the front. This provides the advantage of having your braces be invisible from the outside, though they can be slightly more costly and may not work in severe cases.
Invisalign aligners are slightly different than traditional braces. Invisalign inserts consist of a series of mouthguard like aligners that are custom molded at different points over the course of teeth straightening treatment.
How long does it take for braces to work?
Fixed braces typically take anywhere from 12 to 24 months to achieve the desired teeth straightening results. Our Detroit dentists will be happy to schedule a free consultation with you to give you a better idea of how long treatment would take, as each case will differ on an individual basis. Removable braces, such as Invisalign, may achieve desired results within a shorter course of treatment, though they are not recommended for everyone.
How do you know if you need braces?
During your child’s regular dental visits, our Detroit dentists will be able to determine when it is time for a mild intervention or evaluation for a full set of braces. Early, late or irregular loss of baby teeth, difficulty in chewing or biting and/or crowded, misplaced or blocked out teeth are all early warning signs that your child may be in need of evaluation for braces.
Don’t wait on your child’s oral health! Corrective teeth straightening treatments are much easier and less expensive the earlier the treatment is recommended. However, it is never too late to get the perfect smile you deserve.
