Traditional Braces Are More Comfortable Than Ever

The field of orthodontics has advanced tremendously over the last couple of decades. Traditional methods of tooth movement rely on materials like metal and ceramic brackets, wires, bands, and rubber chains to gently and effectively guide teeth into a more favorable, functional position. These tried and true appliances and methods of use have been refined over time, creating a more comfortable experience. Dr. Cotey may place traditional braces for you or your child if one or more of the following conditions exist:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Under bite
  • Cross bite
  • Narrow arch

Phased Interceptive Orthodontics: Early Diagnosis and Treatment

In the case of children, Dr. Cotey may recommend that orthodontic treatment take place over a series of phases. Identifying and treating certain jaw and malocclusion issues at a younger age can help facilitate proper jaw growth and tooth eruption, and reduce overall treatment time. Interceptive early orthodontics may involve jaw expansion to alleviate the potential for crowding, removal of baby teeth to create room for permanent tooth eruption, and wearing a space maintainer as a “place holder” until permanent teeth erupt. With Dr. Cotey’s experience and expertise, your child’s smile can have the opportunity it needs to grow healthy and strong.
