Straightening your teeth with braces is the most efficient way to eliminate many of the structural problems related to your oral health. If you have a misaligned bite position or crowded teeth that are making it hard to brush and floss, you may require orthodontic treatment. Those same problems can also cause jaw issues and create facial pain or headaches that make every day functioning difficult.

If you’re considering braces as a treatment option, you have plenty of styles to choose from. Our silver braces are an American made product and are one of the most comfortable braces on the market. These braces can target extreme overcrowding and are usually the most cost-effective solution. During a consultation at Charleston Orthodontic Specialists, you can discuss the various benefits of silver braces and decide whether they’re the right method or treatment for you.

The Advantage of Silver Braces

Silver braces are capable of correcting even the most severe orthodontic concerns. For significant misalignment, an unhealthy bite position, or serious overcrowding, silver braces are often the method that our orthodontist will recommend. Or, you might choose silver braces because they are more affordable and usually straighten teeth quicker than the alternatives.

Thankfully, silver braces have come a long way due to a general desire for a method that addresses significant orthodontic issues while being attractive at the same time. Many of the silver braces used today are smaller and more comfortable to wear in an attempt to make them more visually appealing.

How Will Your Life Change?

Treatment with braces typically lasts between 18-24 months, depending on your individual case, so having an understanding of what to expect during this time will make your life easier.

Because you’re adding an entirely new element to your teeth, it’s important to practice more frequent oral hygiene. Not only should you brush and floss on a daily basis, but you should also visit with your dentist for three cleanings a year. Our orthodontist can go over the steps you should take to brush and floss effectively, and you can learn more about the best techniques here [link to Brushing & Flossing page].

While your smile is under renovation, you’ll come into Charleston Orthodontic Specialists for the adjustment of your braces which normally range from 8-10 weeks, where our orthodontist will update you on the progress of your treatment.

Deciding on a treatment option that fits your lifestyle will keep braces from feeling foreign, and we’ll work with you to find a happy medium by creating a customized treatment plan that improves your quality of life.
