Understanding Braces and Their Functionality

Braces are your passport to a smile that’s both stunning and healthy. These tried and true orthodontic appliances, crafted from high-grade materials like stainless steel or durable ceramic, are designed to realign teeth and correct bite issues.

At the core of braces technology are the brackets, which are bonded to each tooth, and the archwires, which thread through these brackets. The archwires are the main force behind teeth movement, applying consistent, gentle pressure to guide teeth into their ideal positions.

During your routine appointments, Dr. Markovitz will adjust the archwires, fine-tuning the direction of teeth movement and pressure, to facilitate the gradual and controlled shifting of teeth within the jawbone.

Dr. Markovitz has taken on complex orthodontic cases and produced amazing results for patients of all ages using braces. Our decades of experience has taught us that every journey with braces is unique and should be tailored to your individual needs with attention and compassion.

Metal Braces: Time-Tested and Effective

Traditional metal braces, the classic choice for orthodontic treatment, are renowned for their durability and effectiveness. At Markovitz Orthodontics, these braces use high-quality stainless steel brackets and wires to precisely and gently align your teeth, offering a reliable path to a perfectly aligned smile.

3M Unitek Clear (Ceramic) Braces:
Subtle and Efficient

3M Unitek Clear (Ceramic) Braces at Markovitz Orthodontics provide the same effective teeth alignment as traditional metal braces but with more discretion. Their tooth-colored brackets and wires blend seamlessly with your smile, making them a less noticeable but equally efficient choice for those seeking subtlety in their orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign: The Clear Alternative to Braces

Invisalign, sometimes referred to as “invisible braces,” presents a modern, nearly invisible alternative to braces at Markovitz Orthodontics. We offer custom-made clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth, gently aligning them over time. Invisalign’s discreet design and removability make eating and brushing your teeth a breeze, making it a popular choice for adults, teens, and kids seeking a more inconspicuous orthodontic treatment.

Benefits of Braces for Adults

Of the over 4 million Americans who wear braces, about 25% of them are adults. Your age shouldn’t prevent you from seeking orthodontic treatment; doing so could keep your smile healthier for longer.

Overall, the dental health of adults is improving; more than generations prior, people are able to keep their natural teeth as they get older. However, this favorable trend presents a new challenge: adults’ growing desire and need to get orthodontic treatment to maintain their natural teeth and health.

Your teeth will shift as you age, and properly aligning your teeth with braces can:

There are a host of benefits adults can enjoy by getting braces treatment that will help them keep their natural smile healthy and bright for many years.

Benefits of Braces for Teens

Teens can reap plenty of benefits from braces treatment too! In fact, a prime time to start your child’s braces journey is when they are a teenager. That’s because it’ll be much easier to align their teeth and facilitate proper jaw growth while their bones and muscles are still maturing.

If you forgo orthodontic treatment for your teenager, it may be more difficult and costly to correct their dental issues once their permanent teeth are set. Beyond preventing more complex alignment and spacing issues in the future, starting your teen’s braces journey can help: 

We make braces treatment comfortable and fun for teens because we know how big of a decision it is for them. Just like all of our patients, your teen will receive personalized and compassionate care from the start of their treatment to the day they reveal their new, beautiful smile!
