Metal Braces

Grand Rapids Cosmetic Dentist

Grand Rapids Braces DentistOrthodontics, which most of us know as braces, describes the art of using appliances to straighten and align teeth.

At Precision Family Dental, our Grand Rapids dentist most commonly use braces to move teeth into their proper positioning.

Our Grand Rapids family dentist will bond brackets to your teeth and thread wires through the brackets. The arch wires act as a track, guiding each tooth to its proper position. Metal braces can correct the following issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • And more!

Why Choose Metal Braces?

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, a child should have their first orthodontic exam by age 7. While most of our patients with braces are children, adults can also seek orthodontic treatment. The reason we start orthodontic treatment during childhood is because teeth are easier to move while the jaw is still growing.

Experienced in helping patients achieve their best smiles!

Crooked or crowded teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue. Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss your teeth properly, increasing your risk of cavities. If you have bite issues, it’s also not uncommon to develop jaw pain. If you are unsure whether you or your child could benefit from metal braces, we recommend scheduling an appointment with one of our orthodontic dentists.
