All staff members are very nice. I came in after having neck surgery. Range of motion wasn’t normal for me. They worked on it to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. Will be going back again.

Benefits of Traditional Braces

Benefits of Traditional Braces benefits of traditional braces

Most of us think of metal braces as something done to straighten our teeth. What that means is simple: we mistakenly believe that it is all about esthetics. However, patients of Chesterfield Family & Cosmetic Dental Center in Springfield, MO quickly learn that orthodontics is more than just a straight smile, and that there are some profound benefits of traditional braces to be gained.

The Work of the Orthodontist

As your chosen dentist in Springfield, you may come to us to serve as your orthodontist too. We may do an evaluation of your teeth and gums and let you know that you need to straighten or align your bite. This is actually the goal of orthodontics – to overcome occlusions or misalignments in the teeth, and metal braces is a very common solution to almost all issues.

While you might want to know about clear braces or clear aligners because you dislike the looks of braces, you may learn that braces are the better solution for your particular needs. This is not a time to despair because there are many benefits of traditional braces to enjoy. Let’s consider them:

  • Budget – Most people appreciate the affordability of traditional braces. Though we will always do a cost comparison with you, and particularly if you are curious about alternative routes, it is fair to say that metal braces end up demanding the lower budget amounts.
  • Time – Because they use more force, one of the benefits of traditional braces is that they can work faster than any other approaches. Though treatment time can vary quite widely from patient to patient, with braces, it is typically the quickest route to results.
  • Infallible – One of the lesser known benefits of traditional braces is that they are bonded to the teeth and cannot be removed by the patient. This is different from an approach like retainers or clear aligners that can be removed and forgotten by the patient. Because they are permanent or mounted for the duration, braces are infallible!

Experience the Benefits of Traditional Braces

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
