Lincoln Braces Expert
Looking for a trusted Lincoln braces expert? Look no further than Pioneer Orthodontics! Our team is dedicated to creating beautiful, straight smiles for patients of all ages in Lincoln and the surrounding communities. We offer a variety of orthodontic options, including traditional metal braces and ceramic braces, to help you achieve optimal tooth and jaw alignment.
At Pioneer Orthodontics, we understand that each patient's orthodontic needs are unique. That's why before we put your braces on, our team will collect digital x-rays, photos, and a model of your mouth to create a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan will include information about the movements each tooth needs to make and determine how your brackets are placed for maximum effectiveness.
Our braces treatment involves a wire being inserted to provide customized pressure on all the teeth that need to be moved. This wire is adjusted regularly to ensure precise movements of the teeth, a process called remodeling. Remodeling involves minor changes in the bone that surrounds the roots of teeth, where cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts form around the tooth's root. This, in combination with the wire, creates negative pressure on one side of the tooth, where bone will be removed. On the other side of the tooth, the bone is reformed.
It's important to note that once your braces are removed, teeth may begin drifting back towards their old positions over time. To prevent this, we recommend using a retainer regularly to keep your teeth in their new and improved positions. Trust Pioneer Orthodontics for all your Lincoln braces needs and let us help you achieve the beautiful, straight smile you've always wanted!
What your Lincoln braces expert offers
All of our treatment options are excellent and can correct a variety of oral issues, from simple to complex. Traditional metal braces often work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments might, potentially shortening your overall treatment time, while also representing a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. Did you know that today's braces are better than ever? The strength, durability, and affordability of traditional braces are a big part of why they've withstood the test of time and are still the top orthodontic treatment year after year.
Tried-and-true traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used. These will normally be constructed with high-grade stainless steel. The braces work to straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. The metal braces that we offer today are more comfortable and also more fun than ever. You have the option of choosing colored elastics to add a punch of personality to your treatment. If you prefer a more subtle approach, we also offer clear or tooth-colored elastics.
Ceramic braces work the same way metal braces do, but the brackets are made with a clear ceramic material instead. They are another great option for straightening your teeth. They are used more often on the upper teeth than the lower teeth. They're very popular with our older teen and adult patients because they are such a discrete treatment option. Since the brackets tend to be a bit larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts, we normally won't recommend them for our younger patients.
Using traditional braces, you can often see visible signs of improvement relatively quickly, which can help increase your confidence in both your smile and the orthodontic process!
