Adult Braces Denville NJ

Braces are orthodontic devices that give patients straight, evenly spaced teeth and align the upper and lower teeth for proper biting and chewing. Having a straighter, more attractive smile is often a confidence booster for children, teens, and adults. There are a wide variety of braces available. Traditional metal braces are the most commonly used treatment method. However, tooth-colored braces, lingual braces and clear aligner trays are also popular. Advances in technology and dental materials make today's braces more effective and comfortable than ever.

Why Choose Braces?

Braces offer an opportunity to make your teeth look their very best. However, fixing tooth and bite alignment problems does more than create an even, beautiful smile. Crooked and crowded teeth are difficult to clean properly. Having straight teeth can reduce the risk of oral disease like cavities and periodontitis (the leading causes of adult tooth loss). Better alignment can also reduce abnormal wear and tear on the chewing surfaces of molars. For children, orthodontic treatment has the added advantage of promoting proper jaw growth and facial symmetry.

Who is a Candidate for Treatment with Braces?

Braces can be used to treat a broad range of bite and tooth problems including:

  • Tooth crookedness (teeth which are rotated at an angle or slanted inward or outward)
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Tooth crowding
  • Bite malloclusion (overbite, underbite, or cross bite)

Adults with crooked teeth or bite misalignment can usually benefit from braces as well. However, they may need a longer treatment time. In some cases, they need one or more teeth removed to allow sufficient room for the rest of the teeth to be moved into position. Patients with good oral health (little or no gum disease and only minor dental work such as fillings) are the best candidates for orthodontic treatment.
