Orthodontics Q&A

What is orthodontics?

At Championship Dental, orthodontic treatment includes traditional adolescent and adult braces. Metal brackets and wires help realign crooked teeth to give you a smile you’ll feel confident to have. The length of time you must wear braces to achieve the most desirable outcome depends on the severity of misaligned or crooked teeth.

The team of experts at Championship Dental specialize in orthodontics care and use the most advanced, state-of-the-art equipment and techniques when placing braces on you or your child’s teeth.

What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

You can reap numerous cosmetic and oral health benefits from getting braces at Championship Dental. Examples include:

  • Straighter teeth
  • Fewer gaps
  • Less teeth crowding
  • A better bite
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • More efficient teeth cleaning
  • An aesthetically pleasing smile
  • More self-confidence
  • Lower risk of tooth decay and gum disease

Whether you’re an adult or teenager, braces help you achieve the beautiful smile of your dreams.

What should I expect during orthodontic treatment?

Prior to getting braces at Championship Dental, your provider will complete an orthodontic consultation. They review your dental history, examine your teeth and mouth, and use X-rays to determine if orthodontic care is right for you.

If your mouth is too crowded, you might first require dental surgery to remove teeth that don’t fit well before your dentist applies braces.

During treatment, they use special cement to secure metal brackets to your teeth. Your dental provider connects the brackets with a wire, which they periodically tighten to slowly shift your teeth into proper alignment over time.

How long should I wear braces?

Your personalized orthodontic treatment plan is based on how misaligned your teeth are and how fast they shift into place. Your dentist lets you know what to expect. Many people require braces for about one to three years, and wear a retainer after that to hold their teeth in place long term.

Don’t live with crooked or misaligned teeth that make you self-conscious or cause difficulty keeping your teeth clean. Schedule an orthodontics consultation with Championship Dental over the phone or online today.
