About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient ways to straighten teeth and help elimininate oral health problems that can be set off by teeth that are not aligned. Traditional braces can help all patients get their teeth, jaw, and lips in ideal alignment to ward off tooth decay, continuing pain, gum disease, trouble chewing, speech concerns, and more. Braces can also fix teeth that are packed in, projecting, or poorly spaced, not to mention cross bites, overbites, underbites, and jaw trouble. Even though braces are generally connected to younger patients, braces by our dentists at DentalWorks - Westland Center in Westland, MI can help every patient get a healthier, more gorgeous smile.

What to Expect
Metal braces for adults and youths are unique based on the patient's goals and concerns. The timing of treatment will vary depending on the patient'ss case, but younger patients normally takes less time and the patient will often avoid other oral problems. The orthodontic braces are little brackets that are bonded to each tooth that are then joined with wires that gradually, but constantly adjust the teeth into their correct position. Patients should return to DentalWorks - Westland Center in Westland, MI to have their metal braces and progress checked about once a month by our dentists at DentalWorks - Westland Center 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 critical to follow a good home care routine and keep the teeth well-maintained during orthodontic treatment.
As soon as the metal braces are detached, the patient will often be given a retainer to wear that will deter 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. Patients should maintain a good home oral care routine, including consistent brushing and flossing, and visiting our dentists at DentalWorks - Westland Center for deep cleanings and dental exams.
Insurance companies most often pays part of the amount of orthodontics, but this changes based on the type of treatment and the patient's coverage. DentalWorks - Westland Center in Westland, MI will communicate with the patient's insurance company to calculate the benefits and the patient's costs. DentalWorks - Westland Center accepts numerous forms of payment and offers financing arrangements for our patients to make orthodontics affordably priced.
