Traditional metal braces have been a popular choice amongst teenagers and adults who are looking to transform the appearance of their teeth. These are made up of metal brackets, wires and elastic bands used to gradually move teeth to their corrected position. You may benefit from braces if you are looking to:
- Close gaps between teeth
- Fix misaligned or crowded teeth
- Improve the position of your bite
- Boost your self-confidence
- Enhance your oral health
For this orthodontic treatment, our dentists will attach metal brackets to the front of your teeth and connect them together with wire and elastic bands. Once these have been placed, we will discuss what life with braces will be like during the course of your treatment, including what foods to avoid and how to properly care for your teeth.
With braces, you will be expected to visit our office on a regular basis to adjust them as needed. If you encounter any issues with your braces such as loose wires and bands, please contact us as soon as possible to see if we need to make any repairs.
If you have any questions about braces in Mountain View, California, and would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Galina Nasakin and associates, please contact Dental Zone at 650-858-2028.
