Braces Q&A

What are braces?

Braces are devices you wear on your teeth to straighten them. Many people’s teeth are crooked, crowded, gapped, or misaligned, or they have jaw alignment problems like an over- or underbite. These problems affect your confidence when you smile.

In addition, if your teeth aren’t straight or are crossed over, you’re more likely to have trouble keeping them clean. This can lead to plaque and tartar buildup. As a result, your risk of gum disease and tooth decay is higher.

The orthodontists (tooth straightening experts) at Dental Studio of Pasadena have years of experience using braces to straighten teeth, giving you a smile you can be proud of.

What kinds of braces are available?

Dental Studio of Pasadena offers several kinds of braces, including:

Metal braces

Traditional metal braces have wires and bands that guide your teeth into the desired position. Your dentist adjusts the braces at intervals to ensure that your teeth realign correctly. The process can take a few years to complete.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic or clear braces work like metal braces but are less noticeable. These braces are clear or made of tooth-colored materials, making them look more natural than traditional metal braces.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces can be ceramic or metal. They move your teeth into their proper alignment, like ceramic and metal braces. But you wear them on the inside of your teeth rather than the outside.

Dental Studio of Pasadena also offers SLX clear aligners from Ortho Organizers Inc. in Carlsbad, California. SLX aligners are made of a special plastic and are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. Every couple of weeks, you switch to a new set of aligners that gradually move your teeth into the correct position.

To determine which braces are best suited to your needs, your dentist completes an orthodontic evaluation to assess the teeth’s condition.

Can braces help at any age?

Most people wear braces as children or teenagers when problems with their teeth or jaw first appear. But modern braces can help adults get straighter teeth too.

It’s never too late to use braces for a straighter smile and healthier teeth. Call Dental Studio of Pasadena today or book an appointment online to find the braces that are right for you.
