Though they’ve existed in some form since the time your twelfth-great grandfather was learning to lace his boots, braces have truly come a long way. Today’s orthodontic professionals have created sophisticated and personalized systems to gradually guide your teeth into a neat and tidy line, free of gaps, crowding, uneven bites and other functional or cosmetic concerns. Our orthodontists, Dr. Thuy Nguyen and associates, want you to have pearly whites you can brag to your besties about, inspiring envy and rage for the fresh chompers they don’t have. At Bayou Braces and Dentistry, we offer you traditional metal braces as well as clear braces that are less noticeable.

If you’ve got a hankering for some metal or clear braces in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, please give our crew a call at (225) 926-4133 today!

Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment option available and have helped countless patients improve their teeth and smiles over the years. Braces work by using a system of metal brackets, wires and bands to gradually and gently realign your teeth until they are in their ideal positions. Here at Bayou Braces and Dentistry, we offer both traditional metal and ceramic, or “clear,” braces to meet your needs.

Our orthodontists may recommend braces to correct issues such as:

  • Crowded and crooked teeth
  • Gapped and spaced teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Bite problems, including crossbites, open bites, underbites and overbites

Both metal and clear braces work the same way. The brackets are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth and then connected through the use of a metal wire and bands. As the wire is adjusted, your teeth will gradually shift into place. Unlike metal braces, however, clear braces are designed to blend in with your teeth. They are made from tooth-colored ceramic and are a discreet and equally effective treatment option.

Our orthodontists will meet with you regularly throughout your treatment to ensure that your braces are adjusted correctly and working to align your teeth.
