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 Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics in Cypress, TX can help all patients get a healthier, more beautiful smile.
"My wife and I used Fairfield Dental & Orthodontics for just over 2 1/2 years. Things went fine for normal cleanings. They have changed staff a few times. Not sure what this "Dentalworks" thing is but it looks like a franchise set-up. Anyway, I highly recommend you look at other Dentists. Why? After a few weeks of... pain on one side of my mouth I decided I better go in and have them have a look. I called Monday morning and the person who answered asked if it would be alright for them to call me back. I guess they were quite busy. I said sure.....It got to be Wednesday and no call back. I called again and then phone was not answered. A greeting asked me to leave a message. I did. No call back the rest of the day. So then on Thursday morning I called in (this being my third attempt in four days) again. No answer again. I did not leave a message this time. I simply decided I needed a new dentist. On Friday they actually called me back!!! By then I already had reached out to my friends for local dentist references and had researched other dentists in the area and made an appointment.

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 Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics in Cypress, TX to have their traditional braces and oral health checked once a month by our dentists at Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics 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 Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics 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. Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics in Cypress, TX will talk with each patient's insurance company to decide the benefits and personal expenses. Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics accepts many methods of payment and offers financing choices for our patients to make metal braces reasonably priced.
