How Do Traditional Braces Work?

Misaligned teeth can cause a range of oral health problems, and they may affect your facial aesthetics as well. Traditional braces aim to correct such issues via the use of a system of brackets and wires.

The brackets and wires are placed on the teeth, and small adjustments are made every 6 – 8 weeks or so in order to reposition the teeth. On average, treatment takes 18 – 36 months to complete; however, that time varies from person to person. After your braces are removed, you will need to wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous places.

What Orthodontic Issues Can Braces Fix?

No matter if you have gapped, rotated, tilted, or overcrowded teeth, metal braces can offer a solution. They may even be able to align your bite to improve your oral function. During your consultation, our team will confirm that braces are a good fit for you before we get to work on your custom treatment plan.

Bite Misalignment

Overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite are all common forms of malocclusions (bad bites). Braces can reposition your teeth, and with the help of accessories, they can also train your lower jaw to rest in the proper position. As a result, you may enjoy greatly improved oral function and a lower risk of TMJ disorder (TMD).

Crowded & Crooked Teeth

When your teeth are crooked and crowded, it makes them more difficult to clean, increasing your risk for gum disease, tooth decay, bad breath, and other oral health issues. Braces can shift your teeth in a way that allows each of them to have the space it needs to function optimally.

Gapped Teeth

Large gaps between the teeth can adversely affect your appearance, leave your gums vulnerable to harm, and make it more challenging to consume certain foods. Braces may be able to move your teeth closer together so you can enjoy an improved bite and a lower risk of future oral health problems.

Caring for Your Braces

While your braces are in place, it is important to maintain your oral hygiene and attend regular appointments for checkups and adjustments. In addition, there are certain foods you will need to avoid in order to prevent damage to your teeth and the braces, like overly sticky foods and those that contain large amounts of sugar. When you first get your braces, our team will provide detailed instructions to help you enjoy successful and complication-free treatment.

Understanding the Cost of Traditional Braces

the cost of traditional braces in coatesvilleIt is natural to assume that all patients who receive traditional braces pay the same price, but the truth is that different factors make this type of orthodontic treatment more or less expensive for some. Once Dr. Bruck and our team can evaluate your smile and build a treatment plan that meets the demands of your smile, we will provide a clearer picture of how much you can expect it to cost. But our efforts don’t stop there, as members of our administrative team will be happy to discuss payment options to help you stay within budget.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Traditional Braces

She will also compile various factors that will contribute to the cost estimate you will be provided with during your appointment. These might include:

  • Your age - The extent of treatment will likely be different depending on whether you are a teenager or an adult. (Adults have more established jawbones that are fully developed, which can require more time for proper movement).
  • The type of orthodontic problem that is present – Whether it is crooked or gapped teeth or a misalignment bite, the severity of the issue will be considered.
  • How long you’ll need braces – The timeline for treatment will ultimately be factored into the cost because of the necessary dental appointments required along the way.
  • Additional orthodontic appliances – If we find that you need a palate expander, rubber bands, headgear, or a retainer, this will be figured into the total amount.

Professional Braces vs. “DIY” Braces: Which Costs More?

While there are plenty of them available on the market, luring patients into thinking that a straighter smile can be achieved without seeing an orthodontist or dentist, there are potential hazards that can occur along the way.

While you may save some money initially, you’ll likely need the help of a professional in the long run, which will only have you spending more. Some of the reasons to avoid DIY solutions include:

  • The lack of permanent results, as you may not be recommended for a retainer once treatment is finished. This can cause your teeth to shift back to their original position.
  • There is no professional oversight, so you may not be suitable for certain orthodontics, which can lead to tooth damage. Without seeing a professional, you may find that your smile ends up in worse shape than before.
  • Initial cost savings might sound like a good idea; however, if problems develop, you’ll end up spending more allowing a professional to address the issue.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Traditional Braces?

Many companies require that you purchase a separate plan to cover orthodontics. If this is the situation you find yourself in, make sure to read the exclusions, as some insurers will only agree to pay for patients under a certain age or who are receiving a certain type of braces.

Generally, traditional metal brackets and wires are a form of treatment that many plans will cover partially or in full.
