Levin Orthodontics is your Sandy Springs braces expert

We proudly create beautiful new smiles for patients of all ages in Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities. If you're looking for someone you can trust to provide a brilliant straight smile in the Sandy Springs area, the team at Levin Orthodontics is here for you. We proudly offer patients a variety of orthodontic options, including traditional metal braces and ceramic braces. Both of these traditional braces options are some of the most effective tools we have for achieving optimal tooth and jaw alignment.

Braces treatment with your Sandy Springs experts

Before we put your braces on, our team will collect digital x-rays, photos, and a model of your mouth. We will then use this information to create a customized treatment plan based on your particular orthodontic needs. This plan will include information about the movements each tooth needs to make in order to achieve optimal positioning, and determine how your brackets are placed.

Once the brackets have been attached, a wire is inserted to provide customized pressure on all the teeth that need to be moved. Through a process called remodeling, which slowly moves the teeth into the correct position, bends in the wire will encourage specific and precise movements of the teeth. This process involves minor changes in the bone that surrounds the roots of teeth. When your braces put pressure on a tooth, cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts form around its root. This works together with the wire to create negative pressure on one side of the tooth, where bone will be removed. On the other side of the tooth, the bone is reformed.

Remodeling requires constant pressure on the tooth. This means that teeth will often begin drifting back towards their old positions over time once your braces are removed. Therefore, the regular use of a retainer is required to help prevent this natural drifting and keep teeth in their new and improved positions!

What your Sandy Springs expert offers

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces work the same way metal braces do, but the brackets are made with a clear ceramic material instead. As another great option for straightening your teeth, they are used more often on the upper teeth than the lower teeth. They're very popular with our older teen and adult patients because they are such a discrete treatment option. Since the brackets tend to be a bit larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts, we normally won't recommend them for our younger patients.

Using traditional braces, you can often see visible signs of improvement relatively quickly, which can help increase your confidence in both your smile and the orthodontic process!
