Using braces to achieve better dental alignment
If you are considering teeth straightening options, you may be told by a cosmetic or restorative dentist that you could benefit from braces. Braces are a popular way for patients of all ages in the Burbank, California, area to achieve a straighter smile and address issues such as bite and jaw alignment. Our team at Dr. Bostani’s Advanced Dental can assist you in finding out if you are a proper candidate for cosmetic braces and how they can be used to enhance or even transform your smile!
What are braces?
Braces, often referred to as orthodontia, are one way to address poor bite alignment, which can result in overcrowding, underbites, overbites, crossbites, or even gaps between the teeth. Traditional braces use a specialized system of metal brackets, wires, and bands attached to the teeth and push them into better alignment over several months. Guide wires are tightened and adjusted with time to ensure teeth move into the preferred positions within the smile. At Dr. Bostani’s Advanced Dental, he is pleased to offer metal and ceramic braces as options for patients to choose from, especially if they are seeking a less noticeable solution than traditional metal.
What can orthodontic treatment improve?
With the use of bracket-and-wire braces, we can assist in correcting the following tooth alignment concerns:
- Crowded teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Bite issues (crossbite, open bite, underbite, overbite)
How long will my orthodontic treatment take?
Every patient is different, as is their smile. We consider any unique factors impacting your smile and your ability to align the teeth properly. Most of our patients will find treatment to take approximately a year or so, depending on the severity of their misalignment.
