About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional orthodontic braces are one of the best methods to align teeth and prevent oral health concerns that can be created by nonaligned teeth. Orthodontics can help every patient get their teeth, lips, and jaw in correct alignment to prevent tooth decay, prolonged pain, periodontal disease, trouble chewing, speech difficulties, and more. Orthodontic treatment can also modify teeth that are overcrowded, sticking out, or improperly spaced, plus cross bites, underbites, overbites, and jaw problems. Although traditional orthodontics are usually linked to teens and children, traditional orthodontics by our dentists at DentalWorks - Greensboro in Greensboro, NC can help all patients get a healthier, more beautiful smile.
"An amazing experience from start to finish- Dr. Lam knows his stuff and he was quick! My daughter had all 4 of her impacted wisdom teeth extracted with sedation and we were in and out in an hour. The staff was wonderful the assistants Amanda, Yvonne and Alli took such good care of my daughter and Amanda took time to really review after care with us so we knew what to do after. Front desk staff to the kind assistant that wheeled her out after the surgery were so pleasant and friendly. I would highly recommend this office!"- M.R. / Google / Jul 24, 2017

"A little bit of a wait, but worth it. Had four different specialist help me, and all of them were super nice and kept me informed of everything that they were doing. First time I've actually had a dentist give me a price for something and explain pros and cons before signing me up for a procedure. I felt completely informed and in control of my own treatment. Person who did my paperwork (wish I had caught her name) was awesome, showed me how to deal with insurance forms and itemized all my expenses, even told me I could come back into the office to get help with forms if I needed it. I just picked them cause they were supposedly inexpensive according to Google, and because they were in-network for me, but turned out to be a great choice!"- K.H. / Google / Jul 10, 2017

What to Expect
Traditional orthodontics for patients are individualized based on the patient's concerns and needs. The duration of treatment will be based on the complexity of the case, but younger patients may take a shorter time and the patient will often prevent other dental concerns. The traditional braces are small brackets that are fastened to each tooth that are then connected with wires that lightly, but steadily move the teeth into their correct position. Patients should come back to DentalWorks - Greensboro in Greensboro, NC to have their traditional orthodontics and mouth checked once a month by our dentists at DentalWorks - Greensboro until the braces are ready to be taken off. While wearing braces, the patient may find it harder to floss and brush their teeth, but it is crucial to follow a proper home care regimen and keep the teeth healthy and strong during the patient's orthodontic treatment.
Once the braces are taken off, the patient will usually be provided with a retainer to wear that will stop the teeth from moving back to their earlier position. A retainer can be secured to the backside of the teeth or created as a detachable mouth piece based on the patient's needs and lifestyle. Patients should start a good home dental care routine, including daily flossing and brushing, and visiting our dentists at DentalWorks - Greensboro for dental cleanings and dental examinations.
Insurance generally pays for a part of the expenses of traditional braces, but this is based on the manner of treatment and the patient's coverage. DentalWorks - Greensboro in Greensboro, NC will talk with each patient's insurance company to decide the benefits and personal expenses. DentalWorks - Greensboro takes many methods of payment and offers financing choices for our patients to make traditional orthodontics reasonably priced.
