What are braces?

Our expert dentists, Drs. Packard and Packard, are skilled in orthodontics, a specialized type of dentistry that corrects improper dental bites and tooth alignment. Braces are a common type of orthodontic treatment used to straighten teeth into an ideal position. Braces can also be used to correct multiple jaw or bite conditions, and are useful for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. At Creekside Dental Ellensburg, we provide traditional orthodontic braces.

How are braces put on?

Traditional braces utilize long-lasting metal brackets and flexible metal wires to gently apply pressure to your smile. Our caring dental team will place a bracket on each tooth after it is cleaned and dried. The wire is then placed in the brackets and secured with elastic bands. Other than a bit of soreness, this process is generally painless. The length of time you will have your braces in Ellensburg, Washington is dependent upon your individual needs. Our skilled dental team will monitor your braces at regular intervals to ensure your braces are in good condition and functioning properly. To schedule your orthodontic consultation, we encourage you to contact a member of our dental team today. We are excited to help you achieve a straighter, more pleasing smile!
