What are braces?

Braces are one of the most common orthodontic treatments available. Braces use a system of metal brackets, wires, and bands to apply gentle, constant pressure to the teeth. This gradually adjusts the alignment of your teeth until you have achieved a straight, beautiful smile. Thanks to advances in technology, materials, and techniques, braces are now more comfortable, effective, and aesthetic than ever before. Alternatives to traditional braces are also available to accommodate your personal needs and preferences, such as ceramic braces and clear plastic aligners. No matter your desires, we are certain to be able to help you achieve the straighter, healthier, more attractive smile you deserve.

Do I need braces?

Dr. Dinh and Dr. Cha may recommend orthodontics if your smile is affected by teeth that are misaligned, crowded, or gapped. Braces can also be used to correct misalignment in the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite. During your orthodontic consultation at our office, our dentists will carefully examine your smile and use diagnostic records such as X-rays and 3D imaging to determine the need for orthodontic treatment and recommend the treatment option best suited to your needs.
