While braces certainly straighten crooked teeth, one of the main reasons to get them is to fix a “malocclusion” or imperfect bite.
One question that often comes up at TenBrook Orthodontics is when should a child start receiving orthodontic treatment?
When it comes to braces, trained orthodontists like Dr. TenBrook are the first place you should go to for information on teeth straightening, treatments, and wearing braces. That may seem obvious, but if you look around the internet – or get your information from friends and strangers – you could hear some strange things about braces that aren’t exactly true.
Do you notice that you have white spots on your teeth? They are common and can be easily treated with our teeth whitening treatments, including the new Zoom 2 treatment. White spots can be caused by several things, but if you were wearing braces, it was most likely caused by demineralization.
While we agree that good things come to those who wait, we’re all for speeding up the process when it comes to creating smiles. That was one of the reasons that Dr. TenBrook invented T1 braces. T1 braces use a series of high-efficiency, nickel-titanium archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably.
