About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional orthodontic braces are one of the best methods to straighten teeth and decrease oral health concerns that can be created by teeth that are crooked. Orthodontics can help men, women, and youth get their teeth, jaw, and lips in correct alignment to inhibit tooth decay, prolonged pain, gum disease, trouble chewing, speech difficulties, and more. Braces can also improve teeth that are overcrowded, sticking out, or unevenly spaced, plus cross bites, overbites, underbites, and jaw problems. Although traditional orthodontics are usually linked to teens and children, traditional orthodontics by our dentists at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills in Pleasant Hills, PA can help all patients get a healthier, more beautiful smile.
"Yesterday was my first time at the location. I had an abscess tooth and was in immediate need of relief. I just walked in and they were able to see me within the hour. Everyone was professional and kind. Since, Dentalworks was not able to remove the tooth, Dr. Gomez gave me a referral for an oral surgeon. The dental team also outlined a variety of procedures that I will need in the future (my teeth are horrible and it has been a while since I saw a dentist.) They all explained why the procedures would be needed versus just telling me about them. I appreciated it quite a lot. The fact I got xrays, a treatment plan, an antibiotic, and a referral immediately and for only a few dollars, I am more than pleased."- J.M. / Google / May 01, 2019

They did a procedure on my front teeth to protect the nerve. I didn't need to schedule another appointment. Thanks very much!"- D.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2019

What to Expect
Traditional braces for patients of all ages are individualized based on the patient's needs and goals. The duration of treatment will be based on the specific case, but younger patients tends to take less time and the patient will often avoid other dental concerns. The traditional braces are small brackets that are glued to each tooth that are then connected with wires that lightly, but steadily move the teeth into their correct position. Patients should return to DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills in Pleasant Hills, PA to have their traditional braces and oral health checked once a month by our dentists at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills until the braces are ready to be taken off. While wearing braces, the patient may find it harder to floss and brush their teeth, but it is essential to follow a proper home care routine and keep the teeth strong during the patient's orthodontic treatment.
Once the braces are taken off, the patient will usually be given a retainer to wear that will discourage the teeth from moving back to their earlier position. A retainer can be secured to the backside of the teeth or created as a detachable mouth piece based on the patient's needs and preferences. Patients should start a good home dental care routine, including daily brushing and flossing, and visiting our dentists at DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills for dental cleanings and dental exams.
Insurance generally pays for a part of the expenses of metal braces, but this is based on the manner of treatment and the patient's dental insurance coverage. DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills in Pleasant Hills, PA will talk with each patient's insurance company to decide the benefits and personal expenses. DentalWorks - Pleasant Hills accepts many methods of payment and offers financing choices for our patients to make metal braces reasonably priced.
