With orthodontic braces, Dr. Tierney can help both adult and child patients make their dream of a healthy, attractive smile come true. Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you, and it’s the focus of attention whenever you speak. With orthodontic braces, our orthodontic practice can correct malocclusions such as underbites, overbites, cross bites and open bites, or crooked teeth, and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. Dr. Tierney discusses which each patient how braces can help to straighten their smile and the types of braces which are available for corrective dentistry.
Orthodontist braces can improve your appearance, improve your health, straighten your smile, and even possibly lower your risk of heart disease. Braces offered by Dr. Tierney consist of brackets that are bonded to the teeth, and arch wires that are threaded through the brackets. The arch wires act as a track, and guide each tooth to its proper position. Our practice provides several types of orthodontic braces available to patients, including the more traditional metal braces, ceramic "tooth colored" braces, as well as clear plastic braces with Invisalign.
