The Number of Braces Adjustments Can Vary

If you have been dealing with modest to severe deviations in the alignment of your teeth, then you are also likely frustrated with the appearance of your smile. It’s also worth noting that without correction from an orthodontist like Dr. Rollins or Dr. Petersen, your misaligned teeth could be at increased risk of suffering from chips, dental fractures, and dental attrition problems.

In a situation like this, Dr. Rollins or Dr. Petersen will likely recommend installing traditional braces into your mouth to eventually correct the alignment of your teeth. This style of braces incorporates small metal brackets that are cemented onto the faces of your teeth. It also includes wires and other orthodontic hardware components.

If you aren’t comfortable with visible braces hardware appearing on the teeth in your smile, we can apply a special porcelain-ceramic glaze to some of the visible components. It can be shaded to match natural tooth enamel. Once it has been applied the braces hardware will have less visual impact.

You will need to return to our office every six to eight weeks for a routine adjustment. This simple outpatient appointment will tighten the orthodontic components to gradually move your teeth into their ideal alignment in your mouth.

If you live in Mesa, Gilbert, Queen Creek, Chandler, or Globe, Arizona and you are frustrated with the unappealing alignment of your teeth you should call Rollins and Petersen today to schedule a consultation!
