Do you wish you had a more perfect smile? Do you have gaps in your teeth, crowded teeth, or an improper bite? If so, our Staten Island orthodontists at Graziano Orthodontics may be able to help. Orthodontics is a constantly expanding field that aims to perfect teeth so that they not only look better, but are easier to take care of for patients. Teeth that are straight as opposed to crowded together are much more likely to be cleaned thoroughly and efficiently. This can lead to common issues like tooth decay and periodontal disease.
At Graziano Orthodontics, we have many orthodontic treatment options available to suit a variety of needs. The many solutions that we use work in a similar way, which is to utilize physics in slowly moving teeth toward a more optimal position. Braces and retainers are the most commonly used orthodontic devices. Our Staten Island orthodontists have both clear ceramic braces and traditional metal braces to offer you. Traditional metal braces work by first using bonding technology to attach brackets to the teeth. We then thread arch wires through the brackets. The tightness and tension created by the wires through the brackets is what moves your teeth closer together. There is constant pressure being placed on the teeth, so although the process is slow, your teeth are always changing. Our Staten Island orthodontists will tighten and adjust your braces throughout the time that you are wearing them in order to keep your teeth shifting in the correct direction, until finally your braces will be taken off. You will be amazed at the difference that braces can make for your smile.
