Considering Albuquerque dental braces?
Great choice!

Better Oral Health

Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues associated with crowded or misaligned teeth.

Corrected Bite

Braces can fix bite irregularities such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite, improving chewing function and reducing strain on the jaw muscles.

Prevention of Dental Problems

By correcting alignment issues early on, braces can prevent more serious dental problems from developing in the future, saving you time and money on extensive dental treatments.

Boosted Self-Esteem

A beautiful, straight smile can significantly improve self-esteem and social confidence, leading to a happier, more fulfilling life.

Questions about braces?
We have answers

How long do I need to wear braces?

Every patient is unique, so the length of time you'll need to wear your dental braces will depend on your individual needs and treatment plan. On average, most patients wear braces for 1-3 years.

Can I play sports or musical instruments with metal or clear braces?

Of course! We encourage our patients to stay active and pursue their passions, even with braces. If you play contact sports, we recommend wearing a mouthguard, and taking extra care when playing wind instruments to avoid damaging your braces.

How often do I need to come in for adjustments?

We typically recommend that patients come in for adjustments every 4-6 weeks. However, we may adjust the schedule as needed based on your progress.

Can I still eat my favorite foods with braces?

While you may need to make some adjustments to your diet during your treatment, you can still enjoy most of your favorite foods. We recommend avoiding hard, sticky, or chewy foods that can damage your braces, and cutting up harder foods like apples into smaller pieces to make them easier to eat.
