Your Journey to a Perfect Smile with Cincinnati's Braces Specialists

At Thacker Orthodontics, our preparatory process for braces begins with gathering detailed digital x-rays, photographs, and a precise model of your mouth. This crucial step allows Dr. Jim Thacker and Dr. MaryEvan Thacker to meticulously plan your treatment. They utilize this comprehensive data to craft a tailored treatment strategy, focusing on the specific movements required for each tooth to reach its ideal position.

Once we initiate your braces treatment, we attach brackets to your teeth and thread a specialized wire through them. This wire is key to applying targeted pressure to the teeth that need repositioning. The unique process of remodeling, driven by strategic bends in the wire, directs exact and controlled tooth movement. This involves subtle alterations in the bone surrounding the tooth roots. The pressure from the braces stimulates osteoblasts and osteoclasts cells around the tooth's root, creating a balance of bone removal and formation. This intricate process gradually shifts your teeth into their desired alignment.

To maintain the new positions of your teeth post-treatment, consistent pressure is essential. Without it, there's a tendency for teeth to revert to their original positions. That's where retainers come in – their regular use post-braces is crucial to prevent this natural shifting, ensuring your smile stays beautifully aligned for years to come.

What your Commack braces expert offers

Did you know that today’s braces are better than ever? All of our treatment options are excellent and can correct a variety of simple and complex oral issues, from simple to complex. Traditional metal braces often work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments might, potentially shortening your overall treatment time, while also representing a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. The strength, durability, and affordability of traditional braces are a big part of why they’ve withstood the test of time and are still the top orthodontic treatment year after year.

Metal Braces

Metal braces, a cornerstone of orthodontic treatment, have significantly evolved. Once bulky and conspicuous, today's metal braces are sleek, comfortable, and more efficient. At Thacker Orthodontics in Cincinnati, we utilize the latest advancements in orthodontic technology, ensuring our metal braces are not only effective but also aesthetically pleasing.

Our metal braces are designed to correct a wide range of dental issues, from simple misalignments to complex bite problems. The strength and durability of these braces make them an excellent choice for patients requiring significant tooth movement. Recent innovations have reduced the overall treatment time, making them a convenient option for busy lives in Cincinnati.

Ceramic Braces

For those seeking a subtler orthodontic solution in Cincinnati, clear braces are an ideal choice. Made from transparent or tooth-colored materials, clear braces blend seamlessly with your teeth, offering an effective treatment with a discreet appearance.

Popular among both teens and adults, clear braces provide the same level of effectiveness as metal braces but with an added aesthetic benefit. They are especially suited for patients who are conscious about their appearance during treatment, such as working professionals or socially active individuals.
