It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving has come and gone and we are in the middle of the holiday season. This time of year is special to many of us. We spend time with family and friends, attend parties, and participate in the festivities. While we encourage our patients to enjoy the holiday season to the fullest, it’s important to remember to care for your orthodontic hardware to avoid damage or a delay in your treatment plan. Read on to learn more about navigating the holiday season while receiving orthodontic care.

We are happy to offer patients more than one option of orthodontic treatment based on their oral health needs. There are many patients who are interested in using clear aligners as their method of orthodontic treatment. Patients love clear aligners because of the many benefits this treatment can provide. With the popularity of clear aligners increasing, we want to share some common dos and don’ts to ensure that your treatment progresses as expected. We would hate for a complication to affect your treatment plan and lead to significant problems. Read on to learn more.
At The Best Braces, we often hear new patients explain that they want their smile to look perfect. Each person’s idea of perfection is different. When treating patients with orthodontics, we are looking to perfect a person’s bite. Your bite is the way your top and bottom teeth come together when the back teeth are touching. So, is there a “perfect” bite?
We cannot believe that Halloween is here! We know it can be challenging for some of our patients receiving orthodontic care to enjoy Halloween the same way they have other years. It is important to remember that wearing braces and other hardware is just temporary, and for many, all of the restrictions that may be in place now will be over by next Halloween. The good news is, there is plenty to eat and enjoy this Halloween even while wearing an expander, braces, or other orthodontic hardware. Read on to learn more.
At The Best Braces, we have a number of orthodontic treatments that can improve not only the aesthetics of your teeth but the state of your oral health as well. We want to help patients improve issues with their oral health that may be impacting their daily lives or leading to serious problems with their oral health in the future. One problem that patients may not realize can affect their oral health is an issue with their bite and the alignment of their teeth.
When our patients first get their braces or other hardware, we go over very specific instructions on how to clean the teeth and foods that should generally be avoided. Not only do we review these topics because we want to prevent your braces from breaking, but we also want to help prevent decay and other oral health problems from developing while you are wearing braces. Read on to learn more about how braces can lead to problems with decay.
When patients first visit our office to learn about orthodontic care, the majority of individuals, adults and children alike, are interested in learning how orthodontic treatment can enhance the appearance of their smile.

We offer various orthodontic treatments to fit the needs and desires of our patients. Every orthodontic treatment comes with hardware that is necessary to shift your teeth into the correct placement.
