We offer traditional braces as well as Invisalign or clear braces, which are virtually invisible. Both types of braces help straighten teeth in about the same time frame. Traditional braces use corrective appliances such as braces and retainers and use a bonding technology along with devices called arch wires, which are threaded through using a certain tension on the teeth. Each individual tooth moves slowly over time because of the tightness of the arch wire being used. And invisible braces use a type of retainer in the mouth that can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Our affordable braces Loganville can help patients who may not normally be able to afford braces.
In some cases, the patient’s teeth may appear straight but they may have issues with biting. This can cause further dental problems and should be corrected with the use of orthodontics. Bad bites are inherited genetically but can also stem from poor oral habits the patient may have had as a child, like thumb sucking. Having a better bite and straight teeth also promotes better dental health, which is why affordable braces Loganville are ideal. Crooked or crowded teeth are harder to brush and floss, causing them to become more susceptible tooth decay or gum disease. Straight teeth are easier to maintain and keep clean, keeping the mouth and teeth healthy.
