Dental braces have transformed countless smiles, providing a solution for various orthodontic issues. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we embrace the latest advancements in orthodontic technology to offer a range of braces suitable for different needs and preferences.

Types of Dental Braces

We offer several types of braces, each designed to cater to different orthodontic requirements:

  • Traditional Braces: The most common type, known for their effectiveness in treating complex dental issues.
  • Ceramic Braces: Similar to traditional braces but with ceramic brackets that blend with the color of your teeth for a less noticeable appearance.
  • Damon Braces: A self-ligating system that requires fewer adjustments and can be more comfortable than traditional braces.
  • Lingual Braces: Placed behind the teeth, they are virtually invisible from the outside.

Are Braces Right for Me?

Braces are an ideal solution for those looking to correct dental imperfections such as:

  • Crowding: Overlapped or crooked teeth affecting your bite.
  • Gaps: Noticeable spaces between teeth.
  • Overbite: When lower front teeth bite too close to the upper teeth’s gum.
  • Crossbite: When upper teeth fall inside the lower teeth, potentially impacting chewing.
  • Overjet: Often caused by thumb-sucking, where upper front teeth protrude far forward.
  • Open Bite: When front teeth don’t touch, while back teeth do, affecting chewing efficiency.

The Dental Braces Treatment Process

Getting braces involves several steps:

  • Bracket Placement: After a cheek retractor is applied, your teeth are polished for the brackets to bond properly. A conditioner and adhesive primer are then applied before the brackets are placed using cement.
  • Setting Brackets: Excess cement is removed, and the brackets are hardened with a high-intensity light.
  • Archwire Installation: Once brackets are set, dental archwires are put in place and tightened, which can take around 20 minutes.
  • Post-Procedure Care: After the procedure, it’s normal to experience soreness as your teeth begin to shift into their new positions.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
