Now Accepting New Patients for Braces in Sacramento County
Probably the most often used orthodontic therapy is traditional braces. Weideman Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics specializes in both straightening devices and conventional braces. Should you or your child require orthodontic treatment, we can assist you in determining the best course of action.

Classic braces are made up of metal brackets fastened to a thin wire with a sequence of elastic bands. We tighten the wire throughout therapy to apply pressure to the teeth, which gradually moves them into a more appropriate position. A malocclusion, or misaligned bite, or crowded teeth can all be corrected with this method.

Working together, Weideman Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics will create great hygiene habits. Throughout treatment, our dual-specialist approach will help you avoid gum disease and cavities.

Looking After Your Conventional Braces
Good oral hygiene is crucial while receiving orthodontic treatment. It can be difficult to clean the front surfaces of your teeth where the brackets of traditional braces are glued. Additionally complicating flossing is the wire that joins the brackets.

Brush especially around the brackets to avoid tartar and plaque building up there. Make certain to use fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush authorized by the ADA. We recommend an electric toothbrush made expressly for braces. We might also provide you a particular kind of floss that threads more easily between the wire and your teeth. You might want to give an antibacterial mouth rinse some thought for extra defense.

Features Of Conventional Braces
Since they are usually the best method to treat severe overcrowding and malocclusions, traditional braces are still employed in modern orthodontics. They allow us more control over the gradual movement of specific teeth than do other appliances. Additionally among the least expensive treatments available now are traditional braces.

While the aesthetics of braces worry some patients, smaller brackets and thinner wires make them more aesthetically pleasing than ever. Because bracket technology has advanced, braces nowadays are more comfortable and take less time to heal!

Traditional Braces: Life After
Keeping your teeth looking great requires retainers! Just as much as you do, our orthodontic team wants to make sure your smile lasts a lifetime. The only time you should remove your retainers is to eat, according to our orthodontic experts. Upon a year of regular retainer wear, our orthodontist will assess your suitability for nocturnal wear.

Depending on your tastes, we have a couple various retainers. A lot of people go with an aligner tray-style transparent plastic retainer. Some employ an older, more conventional device composed of a thin metal wire and acrylic.
