Orthodontics corrects issues like misaligned bites and crooked teeth, improving both the health and functionality of your smile. Collaborating with our experienced orthodontists and dentists ensures not only straighter teeth and enhanced confidence but also improved oral health.
Braces use fixed brackets and slim archwires to exert gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually reposition them. The process of teeth alignment is progressive, with each tooth moving slightly every day. The duration of your treatment varies; some individuals may require braces for a few months, while others may need a year or two.
Orthodontic treatment is suitable for correcting various dental conditions, such as:
• Open bites
• TMJ disorder
• End-to-end tooth wear
• Tooth gaps
• Tooth overcrowding
By addressing teeth misalignment, we improve both the functionality and appearance of your smile. As a result, maintaining oral hygiene becomes easier leading to a lower risk of cavities and gum disease.
Braces offer numerous benefits and are suitable for patients of all ages.
Investing in braces for children and teenagers sets the foundation for a lifetime of healthier smiles. By addressing tooth misalignment and growth concerns at a young age, our dentists and orthodontists proactively improve and adjust the shape of a child’s smile. This, in turn, positively impacts factors such as sleep quality, TMJ function, speech development, and emotional and social well-being.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends orthodontic screening for every child by age seven since this stage typically involves a combination of adult (permanent) and baby (primary) teeth. This presents an excellent opportunity for intervention in cases requiring growth modification or tooth alignment.
Teenagers also make excellent candidates for braces due to their smile not being fully developed and their commitment to maintaining proper oral care during treatment.
No one is too old for a straighter smile. Our braces for adults enhance oral function, aesthetics, and patient self-esteem. Whether you opt for traditional or invisible braces, investing in a straighter smile can prolong dental health and prevent issues such as premature wear, advancing periodontal disease, or symptoms of TMJ disorder, such as headaches and jaw pain.
To determine if braces are right for you, schedule a consultation with Bright Now. You’ll get a one-on-one orthodontic assessment with one of our doctors, along with customized treatment plans explaining the process and associated costs of braces.
One of the significant advantages of braces is the availability of different styles to cater to specific concerns, such as aesthetics or improved comfort. During your treatment experience, you can choose from the following types of braces:
Traditional braces are suitable for individuals of all ages, effectively addressing minor crowding, gaps, and significant bite misalignments.
Cosmetic braces crafted from tooth-colored materials offer a low-profile appearance for traditional orthodontic clients, blending more seamlessly with your teeth and becoming less noticeable during daily interactions.
Also known as “hidden” or “invisible” braces, lingual orthodontics involve bonding braces to the tongue side (lingual surface) of your teeth, keeping them hidden when you smile or talk.
Removable clear aligners provide additional versatility for adult and teenage patients. These fitted, transparent trays shift your teeth without the need for traditional orthodontic appliances.
Bright Now! Dental ensures families can access affordable braces without compromising on patient comfort. We strive to provide you with the healthy, attractive smile you deserve at reasonable prices. With our OneSmile Dental Plan, you can enjoy 20-40% discounts on all services, including braces for the entire family.
The braces journey begins with an orthodontic consultation, where we assess your bite and gather relevant information, such as scans and images of your smile. Our dental providers then create a personalized treatment plan that includes the most suitable braces for you, an estimate of the treatment duration, and applicable fees (including insurance coverage estimates).
During your first day of treatment, we will place brackets on your teeth. Each bracket is meticulously bonded to a specific tooth, holding an “archwire” in place. Small elastic bands called “O-rings” are placed over each bracket to secure the archwire. O-rings come in many colors making it fun for younger patients to choose their favorite colors.
After the braces are installed, we schedule follow-up visits approximately every 4-6 weeks to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your appliances. Typically, we change out the archwire and O-rings during these visits to continue progressing your tooth movement.
Maintaining excellent oral hygiene is crucial for every orthodontic patient. If you have braces, we recommend using fluoride toothpaste and brushing twice a day for two minutes. Investing in an electric toothbrush can be highly beneficial. To clean under your archwires and between your teeth, utilize floss aids such as a floss threader, proxy brush, or water flosser. Make sure to use them daily to reduce the risk of tooth decay or gingivitis during treatment.
The cost of braces can vary and depends on the type of orthodontic system you choose, the treatment duration, and your insurance coverage. Prices typically range from $2,800 to $7,200, and we can provide you with a specific, personalized price quote during your orthodontic examination.
Most dental insurance plans include some level of orthodontic coverage. We accept most PPO and HMO dental insurance and work closely with your carrier to help you maximize the benefits under your plan. Our locator tool helps you find a participating provider near you.
We make it easier to afford braces with our modest orthodontic pricing and in-house membership plan. By enrolling in our OneSmile Dental Plan, you can save 20-40% on all services, including braces and orthodontic aligners. Monthly financing plans are also available.
