Dr. Jeffrey Chung and associates offer traditional metal braces to straighten your teeth and correct your bite. Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment available and have helped countless patients over the years to improve their smiles.
Braces use a system of metal brackets, wires and bands to straighten your teeth. The brackets are bonded to the surface of your teeth and connected with the bands and wires. As the wire is adjusted, your teeth are gradually moved into their proper positions. Advances in orthodontic treatment techniques and materials have made metal braces smaller, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. They have also made it possible to offer more discreet options, such as ceramic or “clear” braces that blend in more with your teeth.
Our dentists will meet with you at regular intervals throughout your treatment to ensure that everything is progressing as planned and to make any necessary adjustments. Orthodontic treatment typically takes 18 to 36 months to complete. We will also provide you with instructions on the best way to maintain your oral health while you are wearing braces, including instructions on brushing and flossing and any foods that could damage your appliance and slow down your treatment. We are also available if you have an orthodontic emergency, such as a loose wire or broken bracket.
