What Can Orthodontic Treatment Do for Me?

Orthodontic treatment not only can help you achieve a straight smile, but it can also help you overcome common dental concerns such as an overbite, underbite, and crowded teeth. Our office will progressively help you achieve your dream smile with gentle treatment processes.


Traditional Metal Braces

One of the orthodontic treatments we offer to help enhance your smile is traditional metal braces. This treatment uses brackets attached to your teeth tightened with archwires to help arrange your smile. During this procedure, you will have brackets bonded to your teeth that will stay on for the duration of the treatment. You can decorate these brackets with colored bands. Decorating braces is one of our patient’s favorite parts of traditional metal braces. Our dentists will ask you to visit our office every few weeks to tighten your archwires to help your teeth form into a straighter position. If you are interested in traditional metal braces, call our Clinton, Mississippi dental office today for more information.

Lingual Braces

An alternative to traditional metal braces is lingual braces. In this orthodontic device, we place a metal archwire on the back of your teeth inside your mouth. Lingual braces are a discrete way to straighten your teeth.

Metal Spacers

If your teeth are overcrowded, part of your orthodontic treatment may be to wear metal spacers. These spacers fit over your teeth and help your jaw make space for your teeth. Like most orthodontic devices, eating sticky, chewy, or hard foods with metal spacers is not recommended. These could get stuck to the device and cause tooth decay, or they could damage the device.

Elastics

Elastics, also known as rubber bands, are used by the dentists at Northside Dental Group to help align your jaw and smile. The tension created from the elastics helps slowly move the jaw into place. Elastics also are available in a wide variety of colors.

Retainers

Following traditional metal braces or other orthodontic treatments, your dentist may recommend using a retainer during the day or while you sleep. Wearing a retainer will help you maintain the straight smile of your dreams. While some retainers are removable, fixed retainers can be placed, which may be easier to use for some patients. Talk to your dentist to find out which retainer option is best for you.

Palatal Expander

If your palate is narrow, your dentist may recommend a palatal expander. This device will sit on the roof of your mouth and is attached to your surrounding teeth. Place a key in the keyhole on the expander and widen it each day to use the expander. The palatal expander will progressively expand your palate and help you achieve your dream smile.
