Achieving a Beautiful, Healthy Smile with Braces at Dental Smiles of Joliet

At Dental Smiles of Joliet, we understand that a healthy smile is not only about good oral health, but also about confidence and self-esteem. Braces are an effective way to achieve a beautiful smile with straight teeth and a proper bite, contributing to both your oral health and overall well-being.

What are Braces?

Braces are orthodontic appliances used to correct a variety of dental issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Improper jaw alignment

Types of Braces

With advancements in orthodontic technology, a variety of braces are now available, each with its own advantages:

  • Metal Braces: The most common type, made of high-grade stainless steel. They are smaller and more comfortable than older models, offering efficient and precise tooth movement.
  • Ceramic Braces: Similar to metal braces but tooth-colored, making them less noticeable. They function the same way as metal braces but may be more fragile.
  • Lingual Braces: Metal braces placed on the backside of the teeth, making them virtually invisible. However, they can be less comfortable and more difficult to clean.
  • Orthodontic Aligners: Clear, removable aligners that gradually move teeth into their desired positions. They are often preferred for their aesthetics and comfort, but may not be suitable for all cases.

Our dentists will carefully assess your individual needs and recommend the most appropriate type of braces for you, considering factors such as:

  • Severity of your bite problems
  • Degree of tooth crowding or spacing
  • Need for extractions
  • Relationship of your upper and lower jaws
  • Estimated treatment time
  • Any cosmetic preferences

Benefits of Braces

  • Improved oral health: Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
  • Proper bite function: A healthy bite improves chewing efficiency and reduces stress on the jaw joints.
  • Enhanced self-confidence: A beautiful smile can boost self-esteem and confidence.
