7 Tips for Brushing Your Teeth with Braces

What Lincoln Braces Can Do For You

Traditional braces have stood the test of time due to their strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness. Modern braces have only improved, capable of addressing a wide range of oral issues, from straightforward to intricate.

Metal braces often expedite the process of closing gaps and aligning teeth, potentially reducing your overall treatment duration and offering a budget-friendly option. Clear, or ceramic, braces provide discretion for those are are self-conscious about their smile treatment.

Metal Braces

The quintessential choice for many, traditional metal braces are usually made from high-grade stainless steel. They utilize metal brackets and archwires to align your teeth. Today's metal braces are more comfortable and customizable than ever—you can even select colored elastics to add a personal touch to your treatment! For those who prefer a more understated look, we also offer clear or tooth-colored elastics.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces offer another excellent avenue for smile enhancement. Functioning similarly to metal braces, these feature brackets made from clear ceramic material. They are particularly popular among our older teen and adult patients due to their discreet nature. However, they are generally not recommended for younger patients as the brackets are somewhat larger and more fragile than metal ones. Ceramic braces are often applied to the upper front teeth.

Your Treatment Journey with Lincoln Braces Experts

Our team will gather digital x-rays, photographs, and a dental model before initiating your braces treatment. Dr. John or Dr. Barry will then use this data to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique orthodontic requirements. This plan will guide the optimal placement of your brackets.

After attaching the brackets, your doctor will insert the wire to exert customized pressure on the teeth requiring adjustment. Through a process known as remodeling, specific bends in the wire facilitate precise tooth movement. This involves subtle changes in the bone surrounding your teeth's roots. Constant pressure from the braces activates cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts, which work in tandem with the wire to gradually shift your teeth into their ideal positions.

To maintain these new positions, it's crucial to wear a retainer regularly after your braces are removed, preventing your teeth from reverting to their previous states.
