Braces

Braces, are orthodontic devices designed to correct misaligned teeth and improve the bite. Braces consist of brackets (small pieces that are attached to each tooth) and wires that connect through the brackets. Over time, the wires apply gentle pressure that moves the teeth into their correct position. Treatment time can vary depending on the individual case, but our expert orthodontists at Top Dental will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. Say goodbye to crooked teeth and hello to a beautiful, healthy smile with braces!

Types of Braces for a Straighter Smile

Achieving a straighter smile is easier than ever with different types of braces available. Here are the options:

  • Metal Braces: These are the traditional braces that use pressure to realign teeth. The small brackets are attached to the teeth and connected by a wire that the dentist or orthodontist will tighten periodically to move the teeth gradually.
  • Ceramic Braces: These are a more discreet option than metal braces, as they are virtually invisible due to their ivory-colored hue. They are as effective as metal braces and suitable for all types of patients.
  • Aligners: also known as Invisible Braces aligners are a comfortable and transparent option that allows you to straighten your teeth discreetly. They fit well and are easy to remove.
  • Retainers: After completing the braces treatment, dental retainers help to maintain the corrections achieved and minimize unwanted teeth movements. They are important to stabilize the new positions of the teeth.

Correcting Bites with Braces

Discover the types of bites that can be improved with braces.

Overbite

An overbite is when the top front teeth stick out over the bottom front teeth. This can make your smile look gummy and your chin appear small.

Underbite

An underbite is when the bottom front teeth stick out past the top front teeth. This can make your jaw look bigger and your chin appear more prominent.

Open bite

An open bite is when the front or back teeth don't touch when you bite down. This can cause speech problems, difficulty biting into food, and can even lead to jaw pain.

Crowding

Crowded teeth occur when there isn't enough space in your mouth for all of your teeth. This can cause teeth to overlap, making it harder to keep your teeth clean and leading to an increased risk of tooth decay.

Misplaced Midline

A misplaced midline occurs when the center line between your top and bottom front teeth doesn't match up. This can cause an uneven smile and jaw discomfort.

Spacing

Spacing refers to gaps between teeth. These gaps can occur anywhere in the mouth, but are most common between the front two teeth. Some people find gaps to be charming, while others may feel self-conscious about them.

Crossbite

A crossbite is when some of your upper teeth sit inside your lower teeth. This can cause uneven wear on your teeth, jaw discomfort, and may even cause your jaw to shift to one side.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you're considering orthodontic treatment (braces), you may have some questions.
We've compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions to help you understand the process.
  • How much does it cost to get braces?
    You can get your Braces on your First Appointment at Top Dental with an Initial Payment of $499.99 and the rest of the treatment in Monthly Payments from $200 until the end of your Treatment. In your First Visit with our Orthodontic Specialist we will provide you with a Budget for the entire Treatment.
  • Does it hurt when I get braces?
    It does not hurt. However, the patient may feel pressure on their teeth or slight discomfort during the first few hours after the braces have been placed.
  • How long does the orthodontist take to place the braces?
    Between 60 and 90 minutes.
  • How long does the Braces Treatment last?
    It can last from 1 to 3 years, depending on the procedure to be performed. It is important that you do not miss your follow-ups so as not to extend your Treatment.
  • How can I get a payment plan for braces?
    To obtain a payment plan for braces, you can call (703) 393-9393 to schedule an evaluation appointment with our orthodontic specialist. During the appointment, we will assess your case and present you with a personalized treatment plan and payment options. We do not require credit checks and everyone is eligible to apply for a payment plan. Simply attend your evaluation appointment to get started.
  • How many follow-up appointments should I attend?
    The number of follow-ups to be performed depends on how long the treatment lasts. However, a follow-up is scheduled every 3 to 4 weeks so that the orthodontist can help you adjust the braces and assess the status of the treatment. It is important that the patient does not miss his follow-up appointments so as not to extend the duration of the Treatment.
  • What happens if a bracket falls out?
    Nothing happens, you can call (703) 393-9393 so that we can schedule an appointment to put the piece back on. However, it is an alert for you to take care of your bite since if you constantly drop the treatment it can last longer.
  • Is there an age limit to use braces?
    A patient may be eligible to wear braces as early as 9 years of age. You can wear them even in your 40s and 50s.
  • How can I take care of my braces?
    1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day: Use a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth gently in a circular motion. Pay special attention to the areas around the brackets and wires. If possible, brush after every meal or snack.
    2. Floss every day: Flossing helps remove food particles and plaque from between your teeth and braces. Use a floss threader or a special orthodontic floss to get between the wires.
    3. Avoid hard, sticky or sugary foods: These types of foods can damage your braces or get stuck in them, which can be difficult to remove. Opt for soft, easy-to-chew foods like cooked vegetables, fruits, and lean meats.
    4. Wear a mouthguard for sports: If you play sports, wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth and braces from impact.
    5. Don't chew on pens, pencils or other objects: Chewing on non-food items can damage your braces and even break them.
    6. Attend all follow-up appointments: It is important to attend all scheduled appointments so that your orthodontist can monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
    7. Notify your orthodontist of any issues: If you experience any discomfort, pain, or problems with your braces, notify your orthodontist as soon as possible. They can offer guidance and make any necessary adjustments to keep your treatment on track.
