Unveiling the Power of Modern Braces

At North Seattle Orthodontics, we embrace the latest advancements in orthodontic technology, offering modern braces that prioritize both comfort and aesthetics. Let’s delve into the diverse options available to our patients, empowering you to make an informed decision tailored to your preferences.

How do Braces Work?

Braces exert gentle, consistent pressure to guide your teeth into optimal alignment. With different types available, each offers a unique approach to achieving your desired outcome.

What are the Benefits of Braces?

Braces are transformative, enhancing the health, functionality, and appearance of your smile:

Straight Teeth:

Braces diligently straighten teeth, cultivating a beautiful, healthy smile.

Superior Oral Health:

They aid in cavity prevention, tooth wear reduction, and gum disease avoidance, especially beneficial for crowded teeth.

Restored Functions:

By promoting a healthy bite, braces enhance chewing efficiency and speech clarity while addressing misalignment-induced speech impediments.

Immediate Start:

With braces, there’s no waiting. You can commence treatment immediately under the guidance of our expert team.

Our Treatment Process

Tailored to prioritize your comfort and convenience:

Step 1: Custom Treatment Plan

Upon opting for braces, your customized treatment plan is crafted using advanced 3D scans and digital records, allowing for immediate initiation, or scheduling at your earliest convenience.

Step 2: Braces Placement

During this visit, braces are affixed to your teeth using specialized adhesive, with arch wires secured in place. Optional colored elastics add a personal touch to your treatment journey.

Step 3: Wearing Your Braces

Regular follow-up appointments every 6-8 weeks ensure treatment progress. Adjustments are made efficiently, and discomfort, if any, is temporary and normal.

Step 4: Treatment Completion

Removing braces marks a significant milestone, achieved swiftly and comfortably. Bracket removal, bonding material removal, and enamel polishing leave your teeth smooth and radiant.

Step 5: Life After Braces

Post-treatment guidance, including the use of retainers, ensures the longevity of your new smile, with ongoing support and communication.

Types of Braces

  • Traditional Metal Braces: Time-tested and enhanced for comfort, these braces utilize high-grade stainless steel for effective teeth straightening. Optional colored elastics add a fun element to your treatment journey.

  • Clear Braces: Made of clear materials, these braces offer a discreet option for older teens and adults. While less visible, they require meticulous oral hygiene due to their larger size and increased fragility.
