We Hear This Question All The Time

“Why do I have to get my braces tightened?” is a question we commonly hear from our patients. While it may feel like your braces are tightening around your teeth, we are actually adjusting the wire. It’s important to keep up with these routine adjustments for a number of reasons, including monitoring your teeth to ensure they’re moving into their desired position, and making sure the braces are functioning correctly. Read on to learn more about the importance of keeping up with regular visits.

Set Up Your Child For Success

If you love having healthy and beautiful teeth as much as we do, you’ll be happy to know that February is Children’s Dental Health Month. At The Best Braces, we work hard to provide people of all ages with orthodontic care that will improve both the look and function of their teeth. Good dental health begins at an early age, and if you have children at home or care for children, we have some fun tips on how to teach them the importance of taking care of their dental health, (and we think adults can always use a refresher on the subject, too!).

Positive Outcomes With Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are an effective solution for straightening crooked and crowded teeth. The most obvious reason people choose this type of treatment is that they are not noticeable, unlike traditional metal braces. Regardless of appearance, there is an adjustment period when you first start wearing aligners. We want to make you aware of common experiences that patients have when they first start wearing aligners.

Ceramic or Metal?

Happy New Year from our team at The Best Braces! We hope 2020 is off to a great start for you and your family. It’s a great time of year to set goals — ours is to help as many patients as possible achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. However, we often find people hesitant to use traditional braces because they are self-conscious about wearing metal braces and wires. Fortunately, we offer a solution that is less noticeable while straightening teeth. Click here to learn more about this orthodontic treatment.

Do You Know If You Have a Deep Bite?

Patients don’t typically come to us because they have concerns with a deep bite, also known as an overbite. It may or may not bother patients, but that doesn’t mean a deep bite doesn’t present dental issues.

A deep bite is the most common malocclusion, or bad bite. It occurs when the top teeth excessively overlap the bottom front teeth while the back teeth are closed. It can be caused by a large top jaw, small lower jaw, or missing lower teeth. The good news is that it can be easily corrected with one of many orthodontic and restorative treatments.
