Metal Braces

Grand Rapids Braces Dentist

Grand Rapids Braces DentistDo you sometimes wish you had straighter teeth?

Are you unsure whether your child needs orthodontics? You’ve come to the right place. The Grand Rapids dentists at GR Family Dental have experience helping patients achieve their best smiles with metal braces.

Braces work by exerting constant pressure on teeth so they move into optimal alignment. Metal braces can correct the following issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • And more!

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, a child should have their first orthodontic exam by age 7. While most of our patients with braces are children, adults can also seek orthodontic treatment. The reason we start orthodontic treatment during childhood is because teeth are easier to move while the jaw is still growing.

Experience helping patients achieve their best smiles!

Crooked or crowded teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue. Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss your teeth properly, increasing your risk of cavities. If you have bite issues, it’s also not uncommon to develop jaw pain. If you are unsure whether you or your child could benefit from metal braces, we recommend scheduling an appointment with one of our orthodontic dentists.

The Grand Rapids orthodontic dentists at GR Family Dental have the experience and training needed to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. If you are interested in orthodontics for adults or children, give our dentists in Grand Rapids a call at (616) 455-3020.
