Many people are born with an imperfect smile, and while there is nothing inherently wrong with that, if a smile is crooked or the bite is uneven, you may need to undergo orthodontic treatment. Sure, this procedure will alter the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, but the root reason is to help improve your overall dental health. With the help of our Williamsburg orthodontist, you can explore what different types of braces we offer here at Rosenberg Orthodontics and which method might work best when it comes to meeting your needs, your expectations and your preferences as well.
There are several common types of braces and the kind that you are eligible for will usually depend on how much you need to have done and the nature of the dental work that needs to be completed. Some malocclusions or serious bite problems make themselves apparent during early childhood, in which case interceptive orthodontics may need to be implemented. Interceptive orthodontics, or pediatric braces, are prescribed for children while they still have their baby teeth. While this is not a usual practice, employing some form of orthodontic appliance as early on as possible can help lessen the amount of work that may need to be completed later on, especially if it is expected to be intensive. Here at Rosenberg Orthodontics, our Williamsburg orthodontist can also provide patients with traditional braces or Invisalign clear braces once their permanent teeth have erupted and come in. Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires in order to guide teeth into a more favorable formation that will promote good overall dental health. Invisible braces or Invisalign also guides your teeth slowly over time but uses clear aligner trays in order to do so instead. Each of these methods offers different pros and cons and one may better suit your needs and your preferences over the other, which is something that Dr. Rosenberg is here to help you with.
