Traditional Braces in Santee, CA


Don’t live with crooked teeth!

There is no reason to live with a mouth full of crooked teeth. The cause could be teeth that are crooked or misaligned or your upper, and lower jaws may not meet correctly. Correcting these problems results in a beautiful smile but more importantly, a healthy mouth. If you don’t correct the problem(s), you could experience:

  • Tooth loss
  • Gum disease
  • Affected speech
  • Affected chewing
  • Jaw problems

The best age to treat children with misaligned teeth is between 8 – 14 years of age. During that period, they have mostly permanent teeth and are still growing. But adults can certainly benefit from braces as well.

Traditional braces are highly effective and the most cost-efficient method of straightening your teeth. They straighten your teeth by applying continuous pressure over a period of time. Small brackets are cemented to your teeth and connected by wire. Periodically the wire is tightened to shift your teeth and your jaw. The braces are worn for usually several years, depending on the severity. Once your braces come off, you might have to wear a retainer to hold your teeth in their new position for a while.

While wearing braces, oral hygiene is very important. Too many sugary foods or hard food can damage the braces or cause plaque build-up on your teeth, which could permanently stain or damage your teeth. A Waterpik is a great tool to invest in. The Waterpik will flush food particles out of your teeth and braces. We will show you exactly how to brush – an electric toothbrush is also a great tool to invest in – and how to care for your braces.

Call us and schedule an appointment if you are feeling self-conscience about your teeth. We will determine if braces will help correct your teeth and jaw to give you the beautiful smile you deserve.
