Braces Q & A

Coxsackie Dental Arts

What types of braces are available?

At Coxsackie Dental Arts, Dr. Trott offers several types of braces, depending on your treatment goals. These include:

Metal Braces

Dr. Bruce Trott uses traditional metal braces to straighten teeth and correct misaligned bites. Metal braces use metal wires and connected bands to force teeth back into the proper position. He provides occasional adjustments to ensure that your teeth are re-aligning correctly.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are also known as clear braces. They function much like metal braces in the realignment of your teeth but are less visible in appearance. Brackets are clear or crafted from tooth-colored materials to present a more natural look than traditional metal braces.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces work like ceramic and metal braces, using force to move your teeth to the correct position. The main difference between lingual and traditional braces is the position of the equipment. With lingual braces, Dr.Trott positions the brackets and wires on the interior of the teeth rather than the exterior.

Invisalign Aligners

Coxsackie Dental Arts also offers Invisalign to correct dysfunctional bites. Aligners are made of a highly durable plastic and are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. Invisalign uses a series of aligners to move your teeth into the correct position gradually; you move on to a new set every couple of weeks. Aligners are fully removable for eating and teeth cleaning.

What kind of braces will I need?

Dr.Trott performs an orthodontic evaluation to determine which type of braces are right for you. Based on the condition of your teeth and your desired goals, Dr. Bruce Trott creates a treatment plan that includes the approximate length of time you’ll need to wear braces to achieve your desired results.

What are the benefits of braces?

Braces are an effective treatment for correcting several dental issues, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Over- and underbites
  • Jaw alignment issues

Dr.Trott frequently recommends braces to fix dental issues in teenagers before the bones stop growing and problems become permanent. Many adults also benefit from braces to correct jaw problems and misaligned teeth.

Braces not only straighten teeth but can also improve the overall health of your mouth. If you’re interested in straightening your smile, call Coxsackie Dental Arts today or book an appointment online.
