What Are Braces?

Here in Greenway Dental Group braces are a popular dental appliance that uses gentle, steady pressure to address issues such as crooked teeth or an overbite. The process entails a series of brackets that are attached to your teeth. Wires are then threaded through the brackets. During a series of appointments, the wires are tightened, slowly moving your teeth into the proper position.

Are Braces Right for Me?

Although many people associate braces with children and teenagers, this corrective treatment is an effective option for adults as well. At Greenway Dental Group, we recommend braces to our patients for a variety of reasons, including the following:

  • Crowded, gapped, misplaced, or blocked-out teeth
  • Teeth that meet in an abnormal way or don’t meet at all
  • Overbite or underbite

To learn more about your suitability for braces, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Alex Shklyar and Dr. Jade Tran. We will thoroughly examine your teeth and help you determine the best course of action for you.

With advancements in orthodontics in the past several years, the shiny metal braces, though still available, are not the only option. At University Centre Dental Associates, Dr. Elizabeth Haynes offers several choices to patients, including the following:

  • Traditional metal – Typically used for severely crooked teeth.
  • Clear or Ceramic – Ceramic braces that are made of a clear material and are much less obvious than traditional metal braces. Brackets may also be attached to the back of the teeth, holding wires that will pull the teeth into a new position.
  • Plastic aligners – These fit like mouth guards over the teeth, gently moving the bite into a new position.

Why Choose Dr. Jade Tran and Dr. Alex Shklyar

Dr. Shklyar and Dr. Tran are well known for her skill, experience, and caring. Dr. Jade Tran is an accredited orthodontist with the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontics.
