Do you have crooked, crowded, or spaced teeth? Do you have a misaligned bite? If so, Dr. Konopka may recommend braces to help you reach a straighter, healthier, and more attractive smile. At our dental office, we can provide conventional orthodontic treatments to improve your smile. Our treatments use either tooth-colored porcelain brackets or traditional metal brackets and archwires. When you visit our practice, Dr. Konopka makes every effort to minimize the need for extracting teeth. To do this, he employs early treatment options that can expand under-developed arches. These treatments can also provide room for potentially crowded teeth.

How do braces work?

Braces are the tried-and-true treatment for straightening teeth and improving smiles. For your treatment, our dentist will attach braces brackets to the front of your teeth. We will then connect each bracket with an archwire and bands. As we adjust the archwire every few weeks, your braces will guide your teeth into their ideal positions. Our dentist may recommend braces to correct a variety of problems with your tooth alignment and bite.

During your treatment, you will meet with Dr. Konopka regularly to ensure that your treatment progresses as planned. These regular visits will also help you achieve the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you have always dreamed of.
