Braces are considered a rite of passage for many young people, much like getting your driver's license. Sometimes clear brackets and tooth-colored wires can help hide the hardware. Dr. Skinner will help you explore the options and discuss if braces fit your treatment scenario.
While orthodontics can solve many tooth alignment problems, successful treatment relies on good patient compliance. Wearing elastic bands consistently, keeping follow-up appointments for adjustments, and practicing outstanding home care can all help lead to a positive outcome. This commitment involves frequent preventive visits with your hygienist which helps avoid cavities around brackets. The Skinner Dental team specializes in helping our orthodontic patients through this process so you can enjoy a gorgeous, healthy smile.
Orthodontics with braces involves teeth straightening and jaw alignment, combining beauty and function. Identifying potential problems as a child may allow for easier treatment, but it's never too late to discuss ways to enhance a smile!
