How Do Traditional Braces Work?

Traditional braces are one of the most effective ways to straighten your teeth. While advancements have been made in orthodontic dentistry, traditional metal braces still hold up strong to their competition such as Invisalign.

The brackets, wires, and elastic bands all work together to shift teeth into the proper alignment and position. At your child’s first appointment, our orthodontists will use a special bonding agent that will correctly place each bracket onto the appropriate tooth.

After the brackets are placed, wires will be threaded through each bracket to snap it into place. The wires serve as the most important aspect of the treatment as they will help move the teeth into the proper place.

How Do I Know My Child Needs Braces?

Most people believe it is an obvious observation that their child needs braces. This can be true when teeth are crooked or crowded, or if an overbite or underbite is apparent.

But there are other signs to watch out for to determine your child may need traditional braces. If your child bites their tongue often or cuts their tongue on their teeth, braces may be necessary to shift the teeth away from the tongue. Also, if your child has difficulty flossing between certain teeth and brushing around certain crooked teeth.

If you believe your child may need braces, contact Rio Dental & Orthodontics in Farmers Branch, TX to schedule a consultation.

Benefits Of Straighter Teeth

We know it’s not every child’s vision to wear braces, but the benefits of having a straight smile make it worthwhile:

  • Greater oral health. Straighter teeth are easier to brush, floss, and keep clean, reducing the chance of contracting cavities and gum disease.
  • Increased self-esteem. With a straight smile, your child can smile with confidence.
  • Reduce wear and tear. When your teeth aren’t straight, it puts added pressure on certain teeth when chewing.

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
