"Making you smile from the inside out"

Do you need dental braces? August 8, 2013

Filed under: Dentistry — Mall of Georgia Dentistry @ 7:25 am

You’re probably asking,  “why might I need dental braces”.  There are a variety of reasons, but primarily braces are recommended for people who have crowded and misaligned teeth or jaws.  The appliance is used to correct these problems and give one a better and more even bite.  A by-product of that, of course, is a more pleasing smile.

Many people who need dental braces get them during their early teenage years. However, adults also may benefit from wearing braces.

For teens or adults who need minor corrections, an alternative to fixed braces is a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners or “invisible braces.” Clear aligners may be more expensive than fixed braces, but may have a more acceptable appearance to some adults. However, many people need fixed braces to appropriately correct their dental problem.

If you think you may need braces, or one of the appliances for more minor corrections, we’d be glad to take a look and make a recommendation.

If you think clear aligners may be the best way to go, we can do that on site.  You can read about them here.

If you’d like to talk about the possibility of braces or have any questions concerning them, call us.  We’d be very happy to answer your questions.
