In addition to providing a better-looking smile, braces also improve your overall oral health!
Braces and your health
Braces help preserve the overall health of your mouth. Straight teeth and an aligned bite are easier to keep clean and healthy. We often see adult patients who didn’t get braces as children who now show signs of undue wear and tear on teeth because of misaligned teeth. Later in life this can require crowns or other types of dental restoration.
Types of braces
Traditional orthodontic braces have come a long way over the years. They’re sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable than ever. We offer two types of dental braces for kids, teens, and adults. Your orthodontist will help you determine which ones will serve you best:
- Metal braces
- Ceramic braces
You’re welcome to visit one of our orthodontists for a free consultation to discuss if braces are right for you or your child. We’re happy to evaluate your needs free of charge, and we will answer any questions you may have on the methods we use to straighten teeth. If you do need orthodontic braces, we offer options for you to choose from—and will provide timelines and cost estimates for each.
Call to Schedule a Free Consultation
Your free consultation includes an exam, x-rays, and a treatment discussion with your orthodontist. There’s absolutely no charge, and there’s no obligation to find out if you’re in need of orthodontic treatment. We will discuss what braces can do for your smile and your oral health—then answer any questions you may have.
If you'd like to request an appointment for your free consultation, please give us a call at 608-848-0820, or fill out this form and someone from our Orthodontics team will contact you at your preferred contact.

Did you know that the American Association of Orthodontics recommends that all children have a checkup with an orthodontic specialist beginning at seven years old? If you remember getting braces in your tweens and teens, seven may sound young; however, orthodontists can now detect subtle tooth and jaw development issues much earlier—even while a child’s baby teeth are still present.
