Bracket & Wire

Orthodontic braces are used to straighten and align the teeth to get them back into an appropriate bite position, improving your health and smile. They can be used to correct under bites, overbites, crossbites, deep bites, crooked teeth, open bites, as well as to widen the jaws and palate.

Braces for Everyone

Braces for all ages

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children see an orthodontist by age 7. Early interceptive treatment during childhood allows for optimal bone development and tooth movement, leading to more efficient and effective results compared to starting treatment later in life.


Braces serve as more than just a means to straighten teeth for teenagers; they play a pivotal role in fostering healthy dental development and self-confidence during a critical stage of life. Advancements in orthodontic technology from faster metal braces to colorful brackets, allow teens to express their individuality while achieving a healthy, confident smile.


Braces aren’t just for kids. Beyond cosmetic enhancements, braces can correct misalignments and bite issues that contribute to oral health problems. Straightening teeth can also alleviate jaw pain and discomfort associated with misalignment, improving overall oral function and comfort

How Much Do Braces Cost?

The cost of braces can vary significantly depending on factors such as the type of braces (traditional metal braces vs. ceramic braces), the severity of the orthodontic issues, the duration of treatment, and the location of the orthodontic practice.

It’s important to consult with an orthodontist for a personalized assessment and cost estimate based on your specific needs and treatment plan. Additionally, many orthodontic offices offer payment plans or financing options to help make braces more affordable for patients.
