Braces

Efficient treatment for permanent teeth

Braces are used to gradually reposition teeth. Composed of metal or plastic plates that are glued to tooth’s outer surface, they are connected by wire band. This band is adjusted and tightened regularly for the gradual and gentle repositioning of the teeth until the desired results are achieved. Intensive and correct dental hygiene is essential during this treatment. To additionally protect teeth from cavities or demineralization (white spots) we recommend sealing the tooth surface before applying brackets as well as coming in for regular professional cleanings.

For patients who prefer orthodontic treatment that is less visible, we offer ceramic (tooth-colored) or lingual braces (affixed to the inner surface). Alternatively, we offer called Invisalign®, the virtually invisible method that relies on customized clear BPA-free plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth into the perfect bite.
