Traditional braces are the most common orthodontic treatment offered at Great Lakes Dentistry in Shelby Twp. Made from metal wires and brackets cemented onto the front of your teeth, braces apply specific amounts of pressure on your teeth to gently shift them into place. Traditional braces are ideal for our adolescent patients whose permanent teeth have completely grown in. Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our caring dentist, will sit down with you to help determine whether braces are a good solution for your smile and how long your braces should be worn. You will be guided through each step of the treatment process by our friendly, knowledgeable team.
While it is normal to experience to some discomfort when your braces are first applied, we do everything within our power to help you or your family member feel comfortable throughout the alignment process. We will also provide you with advice and assistance when it comes to taking care of your smile at home. This includes tips on how to maintain good oral hygiene habits and what foods are best to avoid while wearing braces. If you would like more information about braces in Shelby Township, Michigan, we welcome you to give our dental office a call. We would love to discuss all the benefits of braces with you and your family!
