If your teeth are crooked and want to restore your smile to its original shine, our orthodontists here at Smiles R Us have the knowledge and experience to restore your teeth and understand the needs of inserting braces.
Metal braces are the most common type of braces for orthodontic patients. Today’s metal braces are much smaller, flatter, and more comfortable than in the past. Patients of all ages choose metal braces to help them achieve straight, beautiful smiles.
Our orthodontists carefully check and measure your entire mouth and jawline to see how long the wires need to be before installing your braces. Once the braces have been inserted, you may feel tighten or pain during the early period of having braces.
You will need to return to our office at regular intervals for adjustments. Your teeth may feel sensitive or tender for a day or two after your adjustments, but adjusting your diet as needed can help. After your braces come off, you can keep your teeth looking their best by continuing to maintain excellent dental hygiene practices and wearing your retainer as directed.
We recommend setting monthly appointments to check on the status of your teeth.
Traditional metal braces are still the most popular, quickest, and most cost-effective orthodontic treatment available. Our orthodontist can help you determine what treatment is best for your individual case. Call us (210) 331-7565 to set up an examination today.
