How do braces work?
Before applying the brackets, Dr. Ghaffari will collect photos and X-rays of your mouth. Sometimes we’ll scan each of your teeth and the layout of your gums and mouth.
This process usually takes ten to fifteen minutes and provides a highly accurate 3D view of your mouth.
After the X-Ray and scan, Dr. Ghaffari will use this information to create your customized treatment plan. This will include how each tooth needs to move to get it in the best possible position.
Dr. Ghaffari will decide how to place the brackets based on this information. For example, if you have some teeth that need to be tilted, the placement of those brackets will be different than the placement of brackets for teeth that need to be turned.
Once we attach your brackets, Dr. Ghaffari will insert the wire. Bends in the wire will provide different types of pressure on different teeth. Most orthodontists create precise movements using this bend in the wire.
What can I expect from today’s metal braces?
At Ghaffari Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer the latest braces technology to our patients of all ages in Vienna!
In the past, metal braces have been known to be awkward and obvious. Thanks to technological advancements, they are smaller and more comfortable than ever before.
Sleeker brackets and lighter wires improve the appearance and feel of these braces. This means you’ll have less irritation in your mouth.
Traditional metal braces at Ghaffari Orthodontics also come with customized pops of color. The elastics that fit around your brackets come in a variety of colors so you can add some fun to your treatment.
Braces are great at fixing complex tooth issues. They can work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments might. This can shorten your treatment time.
Metal braces are cost-effective because they don’t require the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments do. The strength, durability, and affordability of metal braces keep them reliable for orthodontic patients in Vienna every year!
How long will I be in braces?
This is what all our Vienna patients want to know, but there is no concrete answer. Every smile is different and every patient responds to treatment in their own way. Treatment time with metal braces at Ghaffari Orthodontics will be different for each person.
The average time spent in metal braces is around eighteen to twenty-two months. This can be shorter or longer, depending on the individual and the treatment plan designed by Dr. Ghaffari.
We have some patients at Ghaffari Orthodontics in braces for as few as six months, but it can take over three years to complete the process for complex issues.
With metal braces from Ghaffari Orthodontics, you’ll see signs of improvement in just a short time, and that gives you confidence during the treatment process.
What are braces made of?
Today’s braces are a distant relative of the clunky tin grins of the past. Modern braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever before with low profiles and comfortable edges.
