Mangat Dental Center in San Jose
What are Orthodontic Braces?
Braces are an orthodontic treatment used to correct abnormal bites and straighten teeth. Traditional braces straighten teeth by applying pressure. They consist of small brackets cemented to the front of your teeth, connected by a wire. The wire is periodically tightened to gradually shift your teeth and align your jaw. Clear braces (see video below) as well as brackets that attach to the back teeth (also called lingual braces) are also available.
What are the benefits of Orthodontic Braces?
Correcting dental problems with Orthodontic Braces creates a great-looking smile, but more importantly, results in a healthier mouth. Not correcting an abnormal bite can result in further oral health problems, such as tooth decay, gum diesease, tooth loss, jaw problems, and can even affect speech and chewing. If you or someone you know suffers from jaw problems or trouble chewing, you may be interested in our TMJ Treatment as well as Orthodontic Braces. Dr. Mangat is well-versed in treating TMJ problems while concurrently delivering a beautiful, straight smile to his patients.
Although Invisalign® offers a more convenient and comfortable treatment for teeth straightening, traditional orthodontic braces efficiently straighten teeth and adjust abnormal bites at a lower cost. Dr. Mangat is experienced in offering braces to families of all sizes – from children ages 8 and 14 to adults. For your convenience, Mangat Dental Center in San Jose offers braces in a variety of colors, including clear and tooth-colored, resulting in less noticeable treatment for adults and fun colors to choose from for children.
