For over 30 years, Lakeview Dental Care has been offering braces and orthodontia to patients who are unhappy with their crooked teeth. Braces consist of metal wires, springs, brackets and elastic bands that are assembled and used to straighten crooked teeth or mouths with a bad bite, such as an overbite, underbite, crossbite or open bite. Braces work by consistently applying gentle pressure to the teeth over an extended period of time. This pressure slowly moves your teeth into the desired direction. While the amount of time that a patient has to wear braces varies, it is fairly typical for a patient to wear them for one to three years.
Our dentists and team will meet with you regularly while you wear braces to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and that the alignment of your teeth is on-track. We will also provide you with tips on how to brush and floss effectively while wearing braces and any other adjustments you may need to make to keep your mouth and smile healthy.
Braces in Battle Creek, Michigan, are available and effective for all ages, so no matter what your age, you can still get the smile you have always dreamed of.
