About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient ways to align teeth and prevent oral health problems that can be set off by nonaligned teeth. Traditional braces can help patients of all ages get their teeth, lips, and jaw in ideal alignment to prevent tooth decay, continuing pain, periodontal disease, trouble chewing, speech concerns, and more. Orthodontic treatment can also modify teeth that are packed in, projecting, or improperly spaced, not to mention cross bites, underbites, overbites, and jaw trouble. Even though braces are generally connected to younger patients, braces by our dentists at DentalWorks - Secor Square in Toledo, OH can help every patient get a healthier, more gorgeous smile.

What to Expect
Traditional orthodontics for patients are unique based on the patient's concerns and needs. The timing of treatment will vary depending on the complexity of the case, but younger patients may take a shorter time and the patient will often prevent other oral problems. The orthodontic braces are little brackets that are fastened to each tooth that are then joined with wires that gradually, but constantly adjust the teeth into their correct position. Patients should come back to DentalWorks - Secor Square in Toledo, OH to have their traditional orthodontics and mouth checked about once a month by our dentists at DentalWorks - Secor Square until the orthodontics are ready to be detached. While wearing braces, the individual may find it more difficult to clean their teeth, but it is crucial to follow a good home care regimen and keep the teeth healthy and strong during orthodontic treatment.
As soon as the metal braces are detached, the patient will often be provided with a retainer to wear that will stop the teeth from changing back to their original position. A retainer can be attached to the non-visible side of the teeth or crafted as a mouth piece that can be taken off considering the patient's needs and lifestyle. Patients should maintain a good home oral care routine, including consistent flossing and brushing, and visiting our dentists at DentalWorks - Secor Square for deep cleanings and dental examinations.
Insurance companies most often pays part of the amount of traditional braces, but this changes based on the type of treatment and the patient's insurance coverage. DentalWorks - Secor Square in Toledo, OH will communicate with the patient's insurance company to calculate the benefits and the patient's costs. DentalWorks - Secor Square takes numerous forms of payment and offers financing arrangements for our patients to make traditional orthodontics affordably priced.
