Braces in Marietta, GA

Dr. Dierkes performs orthodontics for residents of Marietta, GA.

What Are Braces?

Orthodontics, or braces, are a system of metal brackets and wires which put gentle pressure on the teeth. This pressure corrects common problems such as misaligned teeth, tooth spacing issues and bite problems. Children, adults and teens with gaps in their teeth, crooked or crowded teeth, or a bite issue such as crossbite, openbite or underbite can benefit from braces.

How is the Braces Procedure Performed?

The process of attaching braces is very simple. After taking an impression to learn the shape of your teeth, Dr. Dierkes will clean your teeth thoroughly before applying cement to attach the part of the braces that fit directly on your teeth. Once the glue is dry on these metal brackets, he will attach the wires which provide the pressure on your teeth to correct your problem.

You may feel nervous about having your braces put on, but there is nothing to feel anxiety about. Dr. Dierkes will not be drilling into your teeth or doing anything that might cause severe pain. You won’t even need a shot to numb your mouth before having your braces attached.
