Traditional Braces

Frisco’s Adaptable Alignment Option

Some traditions have stuck around for a reason. Classic braces are still in use because they are the most versatile teeth straightening option available. While we love clear aligners at Hunt Family Dentistry, our goal is to find the best possible alignment treatment for you. For many, that’s traditional braces. These hard workers can smooth out even the roughest smiles, and they’re suitable for all ages. Our dentist in Frisco, TX, can make you part of our office’s long tradition of creating beautiful, straight teeth.

How Do Traditional
Braces Work?

This tried and true method for achieving a perfect smile works through a system of metal brackets, wires, and bands. Each bracket is attached to an individual tooth, and the wire runs through the brackets across your arch of teeth. This wire is periodically tightened by our orthodontic specialists, applying gentle pressure to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. The process is highly customized to your unique dental structure, ensuring optimal alignment and bite correction.

Invisalign vs. Braces: Why Opt for the Traditional Path?

Traditional braces offer unmatched versatility and effectiveness, particularly when dealing with complex misalignments. Unlike Invisalign®, which is often best suited for mild to moderate teeth straightening issues, traditional braces can correct severe cases. Think overcrowding, large gaps, significant bite problems, and other intricate orthodontic issues. The strength and durability of traditional braces gives Dr. Hunt more precise control. In other words, we can do more to move your teeth to the desired position. For comprehensive correction, you can’t beat this classic treatment. 

The Goldilocks Solution: Clear Braces

If you’re a good candidate for traditional braces, you still don’t have to get obvious metal brackets and colorful bands. Clear braces offer you a more discreet option that still packs strong straightening power. Crafted from composite materials that blend seamlessly with the color of your teeth, these braces are a less obvious orthodontic option. We recommend them for adults and teenagers who are self-conscious about getting alignment help. For that reason, let us know how you feel about treatment, and we can work to find a solution that combines function with aesthetics.

At Hunt Family Dentistry, we take pride in employing the latest advancements in dental technology for accurate diagnostics and effective treatment planning.
