What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the specialized branch of dentistry that studies and treats the alignment of your teeth and any bite-related problems. Orthodontics is especially popular among teenagers and young adults to start them on the road to a straighter, properly functioning smile at an early age. At Saigh Family Dental, we offer high-quality orthodontics for both teenagers and adults to help you achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile. One of the most popular orthodontic treatments available is dental braces.

Do braces hurt?

Dr. Saigh offers traditional braces, which are made of metal brackets and wires that gently apply pressure to your teeth to guide them into a more correct position. While your mouth may feel a bit sore when your braces are first applied and during checkups if the braces need to be tightened, braces are generally painless as you live your day-to-day life. As long as you follow some basic eating and care guidelines, straightening your smile with braces should be a relatively easy and uncomplicated process. There are many benefits of a straighter smile. Not only is your oral health improved, but so is your confidence. Please contact our skilled dentists today if you would like to benefit from orthodontics in Iron River, Michigan.
