New patients Welcome! Extended hours!

A treatment that best suits you

Each 5-6 weeks, you should have a meet up with your orthodontist to review your progress and modify your braces. Your orthodontist is going to do a detailed examination of the jaws and teeth, create a new smile plan and develop a strategy to make it happen.

Applying Braces

Putting braces on the teeth takes about 1–2 hours. Firstly, the orthodontist cleans the teeth and dries them, then he'll glue the brackets in place. These are the tiny bits of square metal containing the cables. Finally, he must put the wires on the arch and tension them.

Adjusting Braces

Braces use tensioned wires to keep the teeth moving. You see the orthodontist every few weeks for a check-up and an adjustment. Your orthodontist must determine how the teeth have shifted and then change the brace tension. The braces will feel tight in the days following an change and the teeth will feel as if they are being pulled around ... well they are! As your teeth shift over the next few days, the pressure will fade for further change until it's time for another check up and adjustment.

Do dental braces hurt?

The braces will often dig into the lips or cheeks. Your dentist or orthodontist will give you some dental wax (or you can pick it up at a drugstore) to make your braces more comfortable! To protect your lips and cheeks, you simply place it over the sharp parts.

Avoid these foods when you have braces on

  • Crunchies: popcorn, chips.
  • Stickies: gum bears, cookies, candy bars, gums.
  • Hard foods: nuts, pretzels, hard treats.
  • Sugar snacks: sandwiches, cakes, chocolate, soda.
  • Stuff to be bite in: apples, carrots, corn on the cob.
  • Snacks you have to chew: jerky, bagels, sourdough

Maintaining oral hygiene with dental braces

Food particles getting stuck in braces is a very common occurrence. That makes it very important to brush your teeth frequently and regularly see your dentist for a cleaning. Your dental team will probably suggest that you use an electric toothbrush and a special paste that you use once a day to reduce the sensitivity of your teeth and build up their enamel.

When it's finally time to take them off

Before you know it, it's time to remove those braces. The wires and brackets are removed by your orthodontist, and then the hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth. Will you like us to return your freshly structured teeth to pearly white with a teeth-whitening kit?!

The front receptionist was very sweet & helpful.. Waited a bit longer than I'm used too. But overall my experience was AWESOME. Angie was the dental assistant & she was very sweet. I think I found my new Dentistry since my old one closed the location I visited.

My first experience was cool in April, I did a follow for December to have extractions done. I spoke with the receptionist we went over my treatment plan and what I needed out of pocket to have extractions done. I took time off work for my appointment and went to my appointment to be disappointed with no service, no extractions scheduled and no apologies, nothing but disappointment for customer service. No I would not recommend or refer anyone to them. I would tell them to choose another dentist. They do false advertising. It is not true the things they say in their advertising. Very upset and disappointed. Affordable Dental near me Meadowbrook poor ratings from me.
