If you would like to straighten your teeth and have a healthier, more radiant smile, braces may be right for you. Braces work by applying consistent, gentle pressure to the teeth, thus moving them into the desired positions. Dr. Howard Nguyen may recommend braces to correct:
- Tooth misalignment
- Overbites or underbites
- Crowding of the teeth
- Gaps and spaces between the teeth
Braces are one of the most common orthodontic treatments available and are an excellent option for almost all patients. Braces work by using a system of metal brackets, bands and wires to gently realign the teeth and move them into their optimal positions. Traditional braces are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth, and as the connecting wire of the braces is adjusted, the teeth are gradually moved into their proper positions.
We are happy to provide orthodontic treatment to individuals of all ages at Nguyen Dental Practice. In many cases, the desired results can be achieved in just one or two years of treatment. During your initial consultation, our dentist will be able to provide you with an estimate of how long your treatment will take to complete.
