Braces are a tried and true treatment option which has been traced back as far as Egyptian times. Mummies have been found with bands on their teeth and catgut was used to close gaps.
We can help you get a “handle” on your teeth. Take a moment and think of a round mug. It would be hard to pick it up and drink anything out of it. But, when you add a handle, your mug becomes much easier to move. Braces use brackets, which are the handles we put on your teeth to help move them into their proper positions.
Braces are essentially a force system of wires, brackets and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of the teeth and connected by the wires and bands. At our office we use mini-twin brackets which are the smallest, most comfortable and discreet brackets available. When you visit our office, Dr. Renick will adjust the wire so it will continue to guide your teeth into their proper alignment. Braces can be used to relieve tooth crowding, gaps in your smile, teeth that are not lined up properly and issues like an open bite, an under or overbite, or a crossbite.
