Orthodontic Treatment Benefits
Orthodontists are dentists who have undergone additional training to become experts in fixing problems caused by alignment and bite issues. If not treated, irregular bites and poor jaw alignment can cause serious discomfort and even result in cosmetic issues. Many people are self-conscious about their smiles; orthodontists strive to give each patient a comfortable smile they can feel great about showing off! Orthodontic treatment also has a number of other benefits, including improved oral hygiene and risk reduction for gum or even heart disease. You might find that once you begin treatment, you’re sleeping better and you have reduced aches and pains.

Braces in Dartmouth
If you’re searching for affordable, comfortable, and discreet options for braces, we have several in our Dartmouth office! If you want to avoid drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment, clear braces may be an excellent solution for you. We only use the newest in braces technology at Docbraces Dartmouth. Our clear braces are made from a ceramic material which is completely translucent and stays that way for the duration of your treatment. Damon Clear braces offer another solution, combining tieless braces with high-tech archwires which realign teeth comfortably and quickly while eliminating the need for painful tightening. Like clear braces, they are stain-resistant, stay clear throughout treatment, and provide an attractive realignment experience with excellent results. Another option you may consider is friction-free braces. This kind of treatment is comfortable, fast, and makes oral hygiene maintenance throughout your treatment a breeze. The special memory wires are light and high-tech, and move your teeth faster into the desired position with fewer adjustments. A unique mechanism holds the wire, allowing your teeth to move more quickly and comfortable without metal or elastic ties. It’s even possible that for some patients, treatment with friction-free braces takes 4-6 fewer months than conventional braces.
