Braces can help you achieve the results you have always wanted – straight teeth! They can also be used to help correct misaligned bites, including both underbites and overbites. Braces can assist people of all ages. We suggest people inquire about braces if they have difficulty chewing or biting, mouth breathing, crowding teeth, misplaced teeth, protruding teeth, a facial imbalance, or grinding of the teeth. The first step will be to have an initial consult with Division Street Dental. At that time, we will provide a thorough examination along with X-rays. We may also take pictures of your face. After doing so, we will decide what type of braces will work best for you and give you the results that you are looking for. Braces are made from bands and wires. They apply pressure on your teeth and gums to move them into the correct position. During the process, we will make sure to monitor your mouth closely and adjust them accordingly. When you have braces, it is even more important to brush your teeth so that any food or particles do not get stuck in them. Flossing is also necessary. We will let you know of any foods that you should stay from and be sure to answer any questions that you may have. We assist our patients through every step of the way. We love helping our patients to get the smile they have always wanted. If you have any questions regarding braces or would like to schedule a consultation, contact us today at (503) 774-3033.
