About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient ways to straighten teeth and avoid oral health problems that can be set off by teeth that are out of alignment. Traditional braces can help men, women, and youth get their teeth, jaw, and lips in ideal alignment to avoid tooth decay, continuing pain, gum disease, trouble chewing, speech concerns, and more. Braces can also amend teeth that are packed in, projecting, or irregularly spaced, not to mention cross bites, overbites, underbites, and jaw trouble. Even though braces are generally connected to younger patients, braces by our dentists at North Beach Dental in Fort Worth, TX can help every patient get a healthier, more gorgeous smile.

What to Expect
Orthodontic braces for youths and adults are unique based on the patient's needs and concerns. The timing of treatment will vary depending on the severity of the case, but younger patients generally takes less time and the patient will often avoid other oral problems. The orthodontic braces are little brackets that are fixed to each tooth that are then joined with wires that gradually, but constantly adjust the teeth into their correct position. Patients should return to North Beach Dental in Fort Worth, TX to have their orthodontic braces and teeth checked about once a month by our dentists at North Beach Dental until the orthodontics are ready to be detached. While wearing braces, the individual may find it more difficult to clean their teeth, but it is important to follow a good home care routine and keep the teeth strong and healthy during orthodontic treatment.
As soon as the metal braces are detached, the patient will often be given a retainer to wear that will prevent the teeth from changing back to their original position. A retainer can be attached to the non-visible side of the teeth or crafted as a mouth piece that can be taken off considering the patient's lifestyle and needs. Patients should maintain a good home oral care routine, including consistent brushing and flossing, and visiting our dentists at North Beach Dental for deep cleanings and dental exams.
Insurance companies most often pays part of the amount of orthodontic braces, but this changes based on the type of treatment and the patient's dental insurance coverage. North Beach Dental in Fort Worth, TX will communicate with the patient's insurance company to calculate the benefits and the patient's costs. North Beach Dental accepts numerous forms of payment and offers financing arrangements for our patients to make orthodontic braces affordably priced.
