What is Orthodontics?

In dentistry, orthodontics is the specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of misalignment of the teeth and jaws. This specialty encompasses several procedures, the most popular of which are braces and clear aligner treatments.  

What is Fixed Orthodontics?  

Fixed orthodontics is the traditional treatment you would typically think of when someone mentions braces. Braces aren’t what they used to be. They have come a long way to be better than ever in recent years.

Compared to clear aligners, braces will be a much better option if your teeth are severely misaligned. Clear aligners need to be continuously switched out with new ones to straighten the teeth gradually. The process is much more streamlined through fixed orthodontics.

What are the Advantages of Fixed Orthodontics?

One of the most significant benefits of fixed orthodontics is that you won’t have to worry about wearing them. If you’ve ever tried clear aligners, you’ve probably noticed that remembering to put them in can be a chore. Plus, you might be motivated not to wear them if they ever get uncomfortable.

With fixed orthodontics, you won’t have to hold yourself accountable. Some other great benefits you’ll notice when your treatment is finished include:

  • Easier brushing and flossing, meaning fewer chances of developing cavities
  • Improved ability to eat and speak
  • Decreased risk of injury resulting from protruding teeth
  • Enhanced confidence and self-esteem

Are Braces Right for Me?

Do you ever shy away from smiling? Are you unhappy with the way your teeth look? If the answer is yes, braces can positively change your life. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Fotek will examine your mouth to see if everything looks healthy.

If there are no signs of infection or other issues that need to be taken care of first, we will begin the preparation stages of your braces. Depending on the severity of your misalignment, the length of treatment can vary drastically. So, we will review the estimated timeline with you during your appointment until you are comfortable.
