Traditional Metal Braces Reviews
"Love this place. Everyone was pleasant and friendly. I had a 10am appt and though i was running behind they got me in and out. Went for a deep cleaning and immediately saw a major difference in my smile. felt a little pressure but the hygienist numbed my gums really good without using those really long needles that i hate. Can’t wait to come back to start the journey on getting braces. OH and i got free teeth whitener and lip balm!!"- J.B. / Google / Mar 16, 2022
Who Is a Good Candidate for Traditional Braces?
Traditional metal braces can be a great orthodontic treatment option for patients of all ages. We use braces made of high-grade, stainless steel archwires attached to brackets that are carefully set to gently move your teeth into the desired position. Metal braces are frequently a great choice for adults and kids with a misaligned jaw, teeth that are crowded or gapped, or an underbite or overbite. MINT dentistry also uses top-quality elastics that are simple to put on and won't break easily. At your initial consultation, we will explain your orthodontic options, then help you select the approach that best fits your goals and lifestyle.
What Is the Process of Getting Braces?
A MINT dentistry professional will develop an orthodontic treatment plan customized to match your needs during your consultation. To begin your appointment, we'll ask you to sit in one of our massaging treatment chairs in a well-equipped procedure room. After putting on a set of our Beats headphones and a pair of our MINT sunglasses, your enamel will be prepared and cleaned before we put on your metal braces. Once we have applied the bonding agent, your brackets will be placed on each tooth. When the brackets are set in place, we can thread the archwire through. You can then pick your color or colors for your elastic bands. The bands attach the wire to the brackets. Typically, the process is quick and patients usually experience minimal discomfort. You will need to visit our Morrow, GA facility about once a month for progress exams and adjustments.
What Happens After Braces Are Placed?
Cleaning your teeth with braces requires a little ingenuity. However, proper oral hygiene is still important to your overall health. Before you leave with your new braces, our team will educate you on how to best clean your teeth and share our tips. We strongly suggest that you brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. Attending all your adjustment appointments, as well as regular dental cleanings, can also help to give you optimal results. On average, most patients have braces for a couple of years, but the length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your case. After your treatment is over, we will take your braces off and move you into a retainer. Our MINT dentistry team will help you choose the right type of retainer for your needs.
