BracesWhat your dentists in Lawrenceville and Suwanee want you to know

If you are thinking about braces, it’s only natural to wonder if they are right for you. Will having orthodontic treatment actually help your smile? The short answer is yes! Dr. Jennifer McCoy and Dr. Katherine Copeland at Jennifer L. McCoy Cosmetic and Family Dentistry want to share how braces can benefit you and your smile. They have two convenient office locations in Lawrenceville and Suwanee, GA, to give you the straight smile you’ve been waiting for.

Braces are right for you if you have teeth that are:

  • Crowded or overlapped
  • Gapped or spaced apart
  • Rotated or poorly-positioned

Braces are also an excellent choice to realign your jaws if you have a less-than-perfect bite. Consider orthodontic treatment if you have:

  • Underbite or overbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • Jaw protrusion or abnormal eruption

There are many benefits you will enjoy with a straight smile, including:

  • A healthier, more beautiful smile
  • Easier and better chewing ability
  • Better digestion from better chewing
  • A smile that is easier to keep clean
  • Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Less damage to your teeth from abnormal wear
  • Less chance of developing jaw or TMJ problems

At Jennifer L. McCoy Cosmetic and Family Dentistry you can choose from a variety of braces. Consider:

  • Conventional braces, with metal brackets and wires
  • Ceramic braces, with ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires
  • Lingual braces, with brackets and wires cemented on to the back surfaces of teeth

You can also choose orthodontic treatment without braces, from the makers of Invisalign, clear plastic aligners. Treatment involves switching to a new set of trays, called aligners, every two weeks. Your teeth gradually move into correct alignment, and the process is usually complete at nine to fifteen months. You can remove the aligners to eat and to brush and floss.
