Braces for Those in Tampa, Brandon, Bloomingdale, Spring Hill, Winter Haven & Neighboring Areas
If you or your child is in need of braces, come to the experts at Dental Associates. We offer a broad range of braces for teeth that are crooked and misaligned, and we will work closely with you and your family to correct any oral issues through the use of one or more correction techniques.
Most are bonded onto the front of the teeth with brackets. They also typically use metal wires and bands to slowly move the teeth into a new position over time. When we fit you, we will always ensure that we are as gentle as possible, taking care to avoid causing you or your child any unnecessary discomfort. With that being said, you can expect to feel a little mild discomfort at various times throughout the process.
When they are initially placed within the mouth, it will take a bit of time for the surrounding tissues, such as the cheeks and tongue, to get used to the sensation of having new, foreign bodies on the teeth. In addition, you may feel some mild discomfort after each visit as a result of new forces being placed on your teeth in an effort to move them over time.
When you need braces for teeth that are wildly out of place, it may take a bit longer of a treatment plan to accomplish your goals, but for most people, the typical treatment plan lasts roughly 12-18 months. Regardless of the duration of treatment, we guarantee that your braces will do what they are intended to do – reposition and straighten your teeth. If you don’t need to straighten your teeth but have an overbite or underbite, braces can oftentimes be an optimal solution. They are frequently used to realign the jaw and create a more natural bite.
