Braces Q & A

How do braces give me a straighter smile?

Your teeth aren’t stuck in their current position. Modern orthodontics has made moving your teeth more accessible and comfortable than ever so you can get a beautiful smile.

Traditional metal braces are one of the most cost-effective ways to transform your smile. They’ve changed significantly over the years, so they look less obtrusive, and you’ll experience less discomfort. The brackets that mount the braces to your teeth are smaller than ever before. 

At Dental Blvd, the team also offers clear plastic aligners — including Invisalign®, if you want a virtually invisible way to move your teeth into their desired positions. 

The dedicated team can help you decide which type of smile straightening is best for your teeth and budget.

Will I need an extraction with my braces if my teeth are crowded?

Dental Blvd prides itself on non-extraction orthodontics. If your teeth don’t have sufficient space in their current position, they use this type of orthodontics to expand the footprint of your smile. 

In short, non-extraction orthodontics move your teeth to expand the entire curve of your smile until there’s sufficient space for all your naturally occurring teeth. Not only does this prevent you from having to go through the extraction of one or multiple teeth, but it also gives you a broader smile.

What is the best age to get braces?

Braces can help you get a more beautiful smile at any age. That said, early orthodontic treatment can set your children up for a lifetime of oral health and confidence. 

The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends getting an orthodontic evaluation by the time your child turns seven. Dental Blvd evaluates the teeth of all their patients — no matter their age — each time they see them, even for routine cleaning. They can help you stay informed about your child’s orthodontic needs so you can start treatment at the right time.

Don’t let a crooked smile rob you of your self-confidence. If you’re ready to straighten your teeth for a stunning smile, call Dental Blvd or request a consultation online today, which is fast and easy.
