Orthodontics FAQ

Why do people need orthodontic treatment?

There are two main reasons people get some type of orthodontic treatment, such as braces. For one, correcting the position of teeth can boost the attractiveness of a smile and help with self-confidence. But orthodontics can actually help your oral health too by making your teeth easier to clean and making it harder for decay or disease to form.

What’s the difference between those three types of braces?

Metal braces are the traditional type you’re probably most familiar with. They are also the least expensive option. Ceramic braces are similar but they use clear or tooth-colored brackets to blend in with teeth better. Lingual braces are braces that actually go behind your teeth so they can’t be seen when you smile.

What is the best age to get braces?

There’s no perfect age! We can say that most treatment begins when all of a patient’s primary teeth have grown in. At Mi Casa Family Dentistry, we can help both teenagers and adults straighten their smile with braces.

How long do I have to wear braces for?

That completely depends on the severity of your case and how much your teeth need to be shifted. During an orthodontic consultation, we’ll give you an estimate of your specific treatment time.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a type of aligner therapy that uses clear, plastic trays to shift teeth instead of brackets and wires. Many patients love how the trays are nearly invisible and completely removable! We’re happy to bring you in for a consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
