Thanks to modern technology and several orthodontic improvements, conventional metal braces are more affordable and comfortable than ever. SEDA Dental of Jupiter provides a selection of orthodontic treatments to accommodate the different wants and needs of our patients. Traditional braces provide fun customizations that are not possible with clear, removable aligners, such as ClearCorrect and Invisalign. A number of our patients choose metal braces as it allows them to display their personality by selecting colored bands. This is particularly an enjoyable feature for younger patients and teenagers who are going to their school sports games as they can show their spirit.

Now at Seda Dental every visit is still perfect and everyone on the team- from the front desk staff, to the hygienists and the other dentists I’ve met are super friendly and more than helpful.

Keep up the great work!"- K.M. / Google / Sep 10, 2019
"I was so impressed with SEDA dental. I was in need of a periodontist. I chose one in Gardens that my dentist recommended. All I needed was a gum graph. He told me I had to pull my tooth out and do an implant and then get a gum graph. This was going to cost thousands. I chose to get a second opinion. Thank God I did. I went to SEDA dental and DMD Wang was amazing. He was honest with me and spent a long time talking with me. Of course all I needed was the gum graph. We scheduled it the following week and he was amazing! I will recommend everyone to him!"- A.L. / Google / Sep 17, 2019

Classic metal braces may be a good treatment option for both children and adults. Our traditional braces are crafted from top-grade stainless steel archwires and mounts that are strategically positioned to give you the beautiful smile you want. They are a good option for patients who have jaw alignment problems, gapped or crowded teeth, over- or under-bites, and protruding teeth. In addition, we use high-quality elastic bands that do not readily snap and are easy to put on. During your appointment, we will discuss your orthodontic options and help you pick the method that best meets your goals.
What to Expect
Following your initial consultation, an individualized treatment program will be created for your particular case. When you return to receive your braces, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and prepped before metal brackets are applied. After we have brushed the bonding agent on your teeth, then your metal braces will be put on. Once all the mounts are done, the wire will be threaded through them. Then you will have the ability to select your preferred band color(s). The very small elastics keep the wires connected to the braces. The application procedure generally moves quite fast and patients feel little to no discomfort. You should expect to return to SEDA Dental of Jupiter around once a month to get adjustments and progress checks.
Traditional braces may make flossing and cleaning your teeth a more difficult process. That is why good oral hygiene is vital to your orthodontic therapy. After your braces are put on, a member of our team will provide you with instructions on how to clean your teeth, as well as provide you with helpful hints. As a rule of thumb, we suggest that you floss and brush your teeth after each meal. Maintaining all of your appointments and bi-annual dental cleanings may also help give you optimal outcomes. Typically, most patients wear their braces for about 1 – 2 years; however, your treatment period will be based on the condition of your smile.
Once your treatment is finished, we will take the braces off and fit your teeth for a retainer. Your retainer can help to keep your teeth in their new location. We can also help you choose the perfect retainer to fit your needs.
When you have an issue with your braces, do not panic. You might have the ability to address many issues temporarily on your own until you make an appointment at our office. These issues do not have to create a delay in your treatment process. If you think you cannot fix your orthodontic issue, please contact us.
Loose Band or Bracket
In the event the bracket or band remains connected to the wire, then leave it where it is. If it is causing discomfort, place sugarless gum or orthodontic wax on it. Occasionally, you are able to take off the elastic using tweezers so you can detach the mount from the archwire.
Attempt to push the cord into position with tweezers. If that is not working, clip the archwire with fingernail clippers or little cable cutters beyond the tooth that it is firmly attached to. If it is causing pain, place sugarless gum or orthodontic wax on it.
Place sugarless gum or orthodontic wax on the archwire.
You may have some discomfort for many days following every office visit. Chew carefully on sugarless gum following appointments to reduce discomfort. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water or take nonprescription pain medication as necessary.
If the appliance is poking or sticking you, then place sugarless gum or orthodontic wax over it to keep it in place.
When compared to other treatments, conventional metal braces are generally less costly. At your consultation, we will discuss your treatment choices and cost quotes so that you may pick the method that best meets your goals and budget. If you are using insurance, we will talk to your provider to confirm your policy and calculate your out-of-pocket expenses. If you do not have insurance, then SEDA Dental of Jupiter takes several payment methods, and we will be able to help you to find medical financing.
