Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that focuses on correcting problems caused when teeth and jaws do not fit together as they should. There are many different types of orthodontic treatments. To help our patients understand their treatments and make informed decisions about their orthodontic care, Smile at the World Orthodontics has provided information about orthodontics. We invite you to explore our website, and to call our practice at 254-773-8028 to seek further information and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Knowles, our experienced orthodontist in Temple, Texas.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. There are several orthodontic treatment options available, and our team will make certain that you receive the one that is right for your personal needs. Through orthodontics, we can correct teeth that are:
Gapped and spaced
For most of our patients, the most obvious benefit of orthodontics is a more beautiful smile. Dr. Knowles may recommend braces if you need to straighten misaligned teeth or correct a bad bite. Treatment time using braces is typically 1-3 years, depending on the severity of the problem, the growth of the face, and the speed at which your teeth respond to the treatment. We are proud to use American-made orthodontics braces at our practice. We invite you to contact us today at 254-773-8028 for more information about braces, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Knowles.
Braces are an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve a smile that is straighter and healthier. One of the most common orthodontic treatments available, braces work to improve your smile by gradually, gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. Ceramic braces are also often available, which are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option.
If you have ever wanted your smile to be straighter and more attractive, braces may be right for your smile. With braces, we are able to correct orthodontic issues such as:
Problems with the bite, including crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite
During your treatment, you will visit our office on a regular basis so we can make sure that your braces are adjusted as needed to continue progressing towards a straighter, healthier smile. Our skilled orthodontist and team will help you reach all of your oral health and appearance goals through personalized, high-quality care. To learn more about braces, please contact our office today.
