What are

Braces treatment is a tried-and-true way to transform the look, feel and function of your smile.

Braces Treatment

Braces have seen some updates.

The days of bulky, awkward braces are long gone. The modern braces we use at Bird Smiles Orthodontics are smaller, more streamlined and a whole lot more comfortable than ever before.

Our expert team combines advanced 3M™ Victory Series™ brackets in metal or ceramic with thin, shape-memory archwires to help patients of all ages get gorgeous, confident smiles.

How do braces work?

Dr. Clark or Dr. Talley creates a precise, digital treatment plan. They then bond ceramic or metal brackets to your teeth, placing them in the exact positions needed to achieve the planned tooth movements. Finally, they insert an archwire into the brackets.

Your appliance exerts constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, shifting the teeth into their proper places. Not only does this lead to a straighter smile, but it also creates the ideal relationship between the upper and lower teeth for a healthy, strong bite.

Who are braces for?

Braces work to correct mild, moderate and severe cases of crowding, spacing, overjet teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites and more. While people often equate braces with younger patients, Dr. Talley and Dr. Clark have successfully treated many adults with braces as well.
