Some patients may prefer or require traditional orthodontic treatment, commonly known as braces. Traditional braces have an amazing track record for straightening teeth, and this approach is the original method used by dentists and orthodontists to correct askew smiles. Dental Wellness Center of Maryville offers metal brackets, as well as clear brackets and rubber bands that are more discreet. For those looking to add more color to their smiles, we offer colored rubber bands in almost every shade under the sun. Some of our patients even theme the color of the rubber bands on their brackets for holidays like Fourth of July, Halloween and Christmas. Patients being treated with traditional braces will receive special oral hygiene instructions from our dentists and team, including how to use a proxabrush, a special toothbrush that can clean between brackets.

Traditional metal braces are often one of the best choices for aligning the bites of children and high school students. However, many adults are choosing to improve their smiles with braces. So, no matter your age we would love to see you! If you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pat Murphy, Dr. Patrick Heulsmann, or Dr. Mike Murphy to see if you would be a good candidate for braces in Maryville, Illinois, call 618-288-1923 today.
