What are orthodontic appliances?

Orthodontic appliances are devices you wear in your mouth, often over your teeth, to reduce unpleasant symptoms and the risk of complications. The experts at Constant and Contro Orthodontics offer a variety of oral devices to match your needs, preferences, and lifestyle.

What are the benefits of orthodontic appliances?

Some of the many benefits you might notice by choosing orthodontic appliances at Constant and Contro Orthodontics include:

  • Easier breathing
  • Straighter teeth
  • Less teeth shifting
  • Improved sleep
  • Better bite
  • Less teeth grinding
  • Fewer sleep apnea symptoms
  • Reduced temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) pain
  • Improved self-confidence

Wearing an orthodontic appliance can prevent future oral health complications, saving you time and money in the long run.

Are orthodontic appliances right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for an orthodontic appliance, the Constant and Contro Orthodontics experts discuss your oral health history, review symptoms, and examine your teeth, gums, mouth, bite, and jaw.

They take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome before personalizing an orthodontic treatment that matches your needs.

You could wear an orthodontic appliance to help you sleep better at night and reduce teeth grinding, jaw clenching, jaw pain, and breathing abnormalities. Wearing an oral appliance can keep your teeth in their ideal alignment after undergoing treatment with Invisalign® or braces.

What happens when getting fitted for orthodontic appliances?

When getting fitted for an orthodontic appliance, your Constant and Contro Orthodontics provider digitally scans your mouth or takes a mold of it. After a dental lab creates a custom-fitted oral appliance, you can begin wearing it as directed by your specialist.

You might wear it most of the day and night (except when you eat meals or brush your teeth), during certain times of the day, or at night only.

How long should I wear orthodontic appliances?

The amount of time you should wear an orthodontic appliance depends on the type of appliance you need. You might wear it for a few months, a year, or indefinitely in some cases. Follow your orthodontist’s instructions to ensure the best results with a low risk of complications.
