If you have alignment issues in your smile or other teeth in your mouth, it can leave you feeling self-conscious and wanting a more functional mouth. In some cases, braces might be called for if you have a significant under-bite or overbite. With a simple consultation session Quality Orthodontic Care can help you find the type of braces that are right for you.

Braces work by gradually changing the orientation of your teeth through a series of adjustment sessions. During each adjustment session the periodontal ligaments anchoring your teeth are stretched and slightly moved one small step closer to your ideal alignment. There are a few different styles of braces, that Quality Orthodontic Care can fit you for.

Traditional braces use brackets that are cemented to the faces of your teeth. Each bracket is connected to a wire. They often use bands and spacers to help make minor adjustments in certain teeth.

Clear plastic braces, such as Invisalign and Clear Correct are intended for people that only require minor realignment. Every two weeks you switch out to another set that is tuned one step closer to your ideal alignment. Most people reach their ideal alignment within six to eight weeks.

If you are interested being fitted for braces you should call Quality Orthodontic Care at 770-664-6003 to schedule an appointment.
