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.

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.
