What are Braces?

Traditional braces are the most common orthodontic treatment. They consist of brackets that attach to the front side of each tooth with an archwire connecting them. Braces shift the teeth into proper alignment so that the top and bottom rows of teeth meet together for effective chewing. They also improve the appearance of the teeth for a better-looking smile.

Benefits of Braces

Traditional braces offer many benefits, including:

Improved dental health. Braces shift the teeth into proper alignment, which makes it easier to keep them clean and prevents damage and uneven wear.

Smile transformation. When treatment is complete, you’ll have a better-looking smile with straight teeth.

Effective for most patients. Braces are a universal orthodontic treatment that is effective for the vast majority of patients. Only in rare cases will a patient’s condition be severe enough that additional treatment is needed.

Better overall health and wellness. Proper tooth alignment prevents jaw pain and allows you to chew food effectively for adequate digestion and nutrition.

Types of Braces

The types of traditional braces we offer include:

Metal Braces

Metal braces
Metal brackets are strong and effective, exerting the necessary force to shift the teeth into the desired position.

Ceramic Braces

Clear Brackets
Ceramic brackets are made of tooth colored ceramic that is less visible on the surface of your teeth, offering a more subtle look than metal braces.

Are You a Good Candidate for Traditional Braces?

Traditional braces are effective for most patients, treating anywhere from mild to severe orthodontic cases. If your teeth are crooked, uneven, crowded, or have gaps, braces can correct the majority of these issues. Braces also treat bite misalignments, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite. Patients of all ages, from childhood through adulthood, can be candidates for traditional braces. A brief evaluation can determine if braces would be an effective orthodontic treatment option for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Traditional Braces

Are traditional braces covered by insurance?
In most cases, if your dental insurance includes orthodontic coverage, the insurance will contribute towards your treatment cost. We offer flexible payment plans for patients for any remaining balance not covered by insurance, and work with you to make all orthodontic treatment affordable for you and your family. We would be happy to assess your insurance coverage and offer an estimate at the time of consultation.
Do clear brackets cost more than metal brackets?
Clear brackets sometimes come at a higher cost than metal brackets. However, the biggest factor in the total cost of your treatment depends on your individual needs, severity of the case, and the estimated treatment time.
What is the best age to get braces?
Braces can be effective at any age. But the most common age to get braces is between 10 and 14. By this age, most of the permanent teeth have erupted into the mouth, and most of the baby teeth have been lost.
Can adults get braces?
Braces are effective for adults as well as children and teens. Many adults decide to get braces for the first time to correct tooth alignment or because their teeth have relapsed after having braces previously. It is never too late to improve your smile and your dental health.
How long do braces take to straighten teeth?
Braces treatment typically takes anywhere from 12-24 months. How long your treatment will take will depend on your individual needs and other factors such as age.
Will I need a retainer after braces?
It is necessary to wear a retainer after braces treatment to keep your teeth in their new position. Following treatment at Quincy Family Orthodontics, you will be given an upper and lower retainer to wear nightly. We recommend wearing your retainers at night for the rest of your life to maintain your results.
