Now is a great time for orthodontics because now, like never before, you have a variety of types of braces to choose from for your orthodontic needs. At Belmar Orthodontics, we offer tools and treatments to evenly straighten teeth and help correct bite problems, providing you with a beautiful, healthy smile. Dr. Hardy and Dr. Cindy specialize in orthodontic treatments for children, teenagers, and adults, offering several different types of braces to help you achieve your cosmetic goals, including:
Traditional braces use a system of wires and brackets that are bonded to the teeth to shift them into their ideal position. Although traditional braces cosmetically impact your smile, they are considered the most cost-effective form of orthodontic treatment and extremely reliable. Traditional braces may offer the best cosmetic results for patients with severe orthodontic issues.
For some patients, their primary goal is to align their front six teeth–the teeth that are most visible when you smile. To accomplish this, we offer short-term braces which align the front six teeth with no adjustment to the occlusion (bite). If this is your main goal in orthodontic treatment, and you want to have treatment completed in a short amount of time, our experienced orthodontists can evaluate your smile/occlusion and determine whether short-term braces will succeed for your needs. Please contact us to schedule a consultation and discuss your options with Dr. Hardy.
