Orthodontics Q & A
What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics at Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics includes traditional braces, which shift your teeth into their ideal alignment if you have a misaligned bite or crooked teeth. Your dentist personalizes each treatment to perfect your beautiful smile.
What are the different types of orthodontics?
The different types of treatments provided by the dentists at Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics near Glendale, AZ, include:
When placing traditional braces, your dentist glues metal brackets to each of your teeth and attaches wires to them. Over time, the braces slowly shift your teeth into a more desirable position. Periodically throughout orthodontics treatment, you return to the dental office so your provider can adjust the wires and bands. After treatment is complete, they remove your braces.
Is orthodontics treatment right for me?
What should I expect during my treatment?
If your dentist agrees you’re a good candidate for orthodontics treatment, they can begin the process of gluing traditional braces to your teeth. They also attach wires and sometimes bands to the brackets. The process of getting braces is simple and painless.
When wearing braces, avoid chewing on hard or sticky objects and thoroughly brush your teeth at least twice daily using fluoride toothpaste. Floss every day too. Attend follow-up appointments as recommended by your dentist, so they can adjust the bands and wires as needed.
After you achieve desirable results, you can wear a retainer during the day or overnight when you sleep. Doing so keeps your teeth in their new position and reduces the risk of shifting over time.
If you’re ready for straight teeth and a gorgeous smile, schedule an appointment with Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics to find out if orthodontics treatment is right for you.
