About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient ways to align teeth and stop oral health problems that can be set off by crooked teeth. Traditional braces can help every patient get their teeth, lips, and jaw in ideal alignment to stop tooth decay, continuing pain, periodontal disease, trouble chewing, speech concerns, and more. Orthodontic treatment can also correct teeth that are packed in, projecting, or unusually 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 - Louisville - Cedar Springs in Louisville, KY can help every patient get a healthier, more gorgeous smile.
"DentalWorks is the place my whole family has been going to for years. The dentist has excellent 'bedside manner' but you don't see her much (if you're lucky?). The hygienists are good at what they do, and not too gestapo on your bad habits, but point them out every single time. We've gotten orthodontics work, extractions, caps, and regular cleanings done and all have been done correctly. They have some small issues with billing my family for services that were supposed to be covered by insurance but they always take care of it later and without any arguing or complaint."- K.N. / Google / Dec 13, 2016
What to Expect
Braces for adults and younger patients are unique based on the patient's concerns and goals. The timing of treatment will vary depending on the individual case, but younger patients usually takes a shorter time and the patient will often prevent other oral problems. The orthodontic braces are little brackets that are attached 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 - Louisville - Cedar Springs in Louisville, KY to have their braces and alignment checked about once a month by our dentists at DentalWorks - Louisville - Cedar Springs 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 vital to follow a good home care regimen and keep the teeth healthy during orthodontic treatment.
As soon as the metal braces are detached, the patient will often be provided with a retainer to wear that will keep 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 preferences and needs. Patients should maintain a good home oral care routine, including consistent flossing and brushing, and visiting our dentists at DentalWorks - Louisville - Cedar Springs for deep cleanings and dental examinations.
Insurance companies most often pays part of the amount of braces, but this changes based on the type of treatment and the patient's coverage. DentalWorks - Louisville - Cedar Springs in Louisville, KY will communicate with the patient's insurance company to calculate the benefits and the patient's costs. DentalWorks - Louisville - Cedar Springs takes numerous forms of payment and offers financing arrangements for our patients to make traditional braces affordably priced.
