Braces Treatment at Bunn Orthodontics

Published on April 05, 2019
The mission at Bunn Orthodontic Group is to create a positive influence on the facial aesthetics, personality, and health of our patients. We are committed to creating the most beautiful smiles. Your smile has an effect on your whole life, so if you are wondering about braces can transform your smile at Bunn Orthodontic Group - we offer two types of braces traditional metal braces and ceramic clear braces.

Traditional metal braces are the most commonly known type of braces. They are usually made of high-grade stainless steel and due to the changing technology, are much more comfortable than ever.

Ceramic braces are a growing option to correct your bite and straighten a smile. The ceramic braces work just like traditional braces, however, these are made of a clear material and are nearly invisible. There is a perfect option for adults or teenagers who want to continue to live their life and smile confidently throughout their treatment.

So what is the process of dental braces and how they shift your teeth? After your initial consultation with Dr. Bunn or Dr. Alfonso, we will map out your entire treatment plan using our latest technology. Once you are ready for braces, your teeth are first cleaned to ensure that the brackets will bond properly. A conditioner is used on the front surfaces of the teeth for 30 seconds to further prepare them for bonding the brackets.

A special cement is placed on the back of the brackets, which are then applied to the predetermined positions on the teeth. Once the brackets are in place, excess cement is removed, and the brackets are hardened into place with a high-intensity light. The retractor is removed, and the dental archwires are then put into place.

Once your braces are well adjusted, you can expect some soreness, discomfort, and tightness as you get used to the feel of your braces. Some dental wax and over the counter pain medication can be taken to help with the discomfort.

We are committed to determining which treatment solution is best suited for you. Check out a few of our patient's fantastic smiles. Schedule your complimentary consultation today and smile with confidence.
