Braces in Greensboro, NC

Braces are an orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth. Irvin Orthodontics offers braces to the local residents of Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem, NC, who are looking to improve the appearance, function, and health of their smiles. 

What Are Braces?

Braces are an orthodontic appliance used to perform a cosmetic dental procedure, which reposition your teeth for optimal form and function of the mouth. Braces consist of brackets and wire, which are attached to the teeth by an orthodontist. Braces are semi-permanent and stay attached to the teeth for the duration of treatment, typically ranging from six to 24 months.

Why Do People Get Braces?

People can get braces for a number of reasons, and this orthodontic treatment is appropriate for children, teens and adults alike. Some of the most common reasons people choose to get braces include:

  • Appearance: Braces can give you a straighter, more symmetric smile to improve your overall look.
  • Hygiene: Crowded or crooked teeth can be more difficult to clean.
  • Function: Braces can correct speech, clenching or eating problems caused by the teeth or jaw.
