Braces at Beacon Dental Group

We have families of all different ages come into our Dorchester Boston, Massachusetts office, so we wanted to have treatments and procedures that anyone could need and benefit from. Unlike traditional general dental practices, at our dental group, we offer our children and our adult patients the option to receive orthodontic work. We offer two forms of orthodontics, Invisalign, and traditional braces.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are simply the metal braces that you have seen in your everyday lives! They are called traditional braces due to new types of braces being invented and introduced. 

Orthodontic work is a dental specialty in which the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of misaligned teeth and jawbones. If you have severely crooked teeth or a misaligned bite like an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, we can use dental appliances to shape your teeth into a beautiful and healthy smile. 

Not only are braces around so that each one of us can have a perfectly straight smile, but they also improve the health of our smile and teeth.

How it works 

Using multiple metal dental appliances, the dentist will slowly start to shift your teeth into the correct position. At your first appointment, x-rays, photos, and impressions will be taken of your teeth so that the dentist can decide your exact treatment plan. 

We will then place the metal appliances to your teeth, depending on your specific smile. There are 2 main parts of braces, the metal brackets that are bonded to the center of each tooth and the archwire that goes through all the brackets on one arch of the mouth. These two work together to pull or push your teeth where they need to be.

There is not a general time frame of how long one will need to wear braces, we can decide that for each patient specifically and separately.
