Traditional Braces

Braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment for helping patients achieve a straighter and healthier smile. They work to improve your smile with a system of bands, metal brackets, and wires that gradually move the alignment of your teeth to their ideal position. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and connected by a metal wire and bands. The wire, which applies tension to your teeth, is adjusted regularly to regulate the movement of your teeth during treatment. Braces can correct orthodontic issues such as:

  • Misaligned or crowded teeth
  • Gapped or spaced teeth
  • Bite alignment, including overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites

To give you the best possible results, you will need to visit our office regularly so our dentists can check your teeth and make the appropriate adjustments to your braces. This helps to ensure that your treatment goes as smoothly and quickly as possible. If you are interested in achieving a brand-new, more attractive smile, we invite you to schedule an appointment with us today. Our experienced dentists can help you reach your smile goals and improve your overall health with braces. Call us today to learn more about braces and how they can transform your smile.

I been coming to excel dentistry for a long time. They have one of the best services and customer service which is hard to find. My previous dentist told me I couldn't get braces and Dr. GARRIDO and her team told me I could. They walk me thru the process and help me thru my change. I now feel more confident with my smile and myself. I recommend Excel Dentistry to all my friend and family. ❤️

I have had an amazing experience!! I have known Dr. Modesto-Garrido for about 12yrs. She did my braces when I was a teenager and now she did veneer and fixed my chipped tooth. Couldn’t be happier. I love my smile even more now. I knew trusting Dr. Modesto-Garrido and her staff again was going to be a great experience and I wasn’t wrong.

About Us
Are traditional braces as effective as clear aligners?
Whether you choose traditional metal braces or opt for something more subtle like clear aligners, the end goal is to realign your teeth and improve your smile. Though clear aligners can be more discreet, traditional metal braces may be more effective for severe cases of misalignment. Our team members at Excel Dentistry can determine the right treatment plan for your needs.
How long should I wear metal braces?
The amount of time it takes for metal braces to straighten your teeth depends on the severity of your case, how closely you follow instructions, and how often you come in for checkups. Generally speaking, orthodontic treatment with traditional metal braces can take anywhere from one and three years in Glen Rock, NJ.
What foods should I avoid with braces?
Dr. Modesto-Garrido and Dr. Modesto recommend avoiding certain foods that could damage braces or cause discomfort. These include hard and sticky candies, popcorn, chips, nuts, gum, ice cubes, and very chewy foods like taffy. Rest assured, you can still enjoy a wide variety of soft and nutritious foods.
