Here at Bonner Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer braces to our patients, both children and adults.

No matter your age, you deserve a smile that gives you confidence. For many patients, braces are the treatment they require for a straighter, healthier smile. Braces can fix crowded teeth, gap teeth, misaligned bites, and more.

When determining the best course of action to fix your smile, our dentists will do a thorough examination with x-rays, a comprehensive exam of your oral health, and gather important information from your dental history. We will then decide what type of braces would work best for you.

Braces consist of bands and wires. Depending on your needs, other corrective appliances may be required. They work by applying pressure on your teeth and gums to move your teeth into the right position. Your mouth will need to be monitored closely, and sometimes your braces may need to be adjusted to ensure they are working the way they are supposed to.

Be sure to brush your teeth often while you have braces, so food and other particles do not get stuck and collect bacteria. Flossing is equally important. You may also find that some foods are more difficult to eat or may be rough on your braces. It’s best to stay away from those types of foods.
