Braces use metal brackets temporarily affixed to your teeth and connected by wires to straighten your smile. While traditional braces often get a bad reputation for their initial discomfort and look, at Exeter Orthodontics we offer the latest orthodontic appliances that allow you to have the benefit of traditional braces with less discomfort, as well as the option of clear brackets.
After braces are initially placed and adjusted, you may experience some moderate discomfort. However, that discomfort will fade soon after your appointment.
Traditional braces have changed a lot over the years. Today, you have the opportunity to get clear brackets with wires that are less noticeable.
We also offer Invisalign® treatment, which consists of thin aligners that fit transparently over your teeth.
The treatment length for braces ranges anywhere from 1 to 3 years and can be impacted by your age, your chosen treatment method, and your case’s complexity. While that may seem like a long time, the results are life changing.
Braces cost only $3,995. In other offices, braces may cost more than double that price. However, at Exeter Orthodontics we believe a straighter smile should never be out of reach. Payment plans are also available to meet the financial needs of all of our patients.
Traditional braces are outstanding in their efficacy and have been worn by adolescents and adults for years with consistent and predictable results. From mild cases to the most severe, the outcome that can be produced from traditional braces has always been the same: a straight and healthy smile.
Orthodontic treatment outcomes depend greatly on how well you follow the plan outlined by your orthodontist. Unlike Invisalign aligners, traditional braces cannot be removed and have a very high compliance. Since you are making a big investment in your smile, traditional braces ensure that you get the smile you’re paying for.
