About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional orthodontic braces are one of the best methods to align teeth and help elimininate oral health concerns that can be created by teeth that are not aligned. Orthodontics can help patients of all ages get their teeth, lips, and jaw in correct alignment to ward off tooth decay, prolonged pain, periodontal disease, trouble chewing, speech difficulties, and more. Orthodontic treatment can also fix teeth that are overcrowded, sticking out, or poorly spaced, plus cross bites, underbites, overbites, and jaw problems. Although traditional orthodontics are usually linked to teens and children, traditional orthodontics by our dentists at Rock Canyon Dental Care in Highlands Ranch, CO can help all patients get a healthier, more beautiful smile.
"We recently moved to Denver from Texas and were looking to get re-established with a dentist. I heard great things about Dr. Le and decided to give his office a try. It was a bit of a drive from Denver Metro area, but it was definitely worth the drive. Dr. Le and his staff were incredible and did a very thorough job. So happy to have found my new dentist."- D.N. / Google / Jul 19, 2019
"This dental practice is fantastic and they all are awesome!!! "I love going to the dentist said no one ever" but I have lived in the Ranch since 98' and trust me when I say I have been through a few (good, bad or indifferent)! If you want to feel at ease, someone to listen without judgment and be on the same page as yourself, then Rock Canyon is for you! Just walking in the door is comfortable from the get go, Dr. Le is a hoot! Also you just feel like you're part of the neighborhood..."- S.N. / Google / Jun 13, 2019
"I’ve been coming to this location for a couple years now. It’s not close to me so I go out of my way (45 minutes) to come here. The staff is always friendly and always helpful. I’ve done standard dental cleanings, wisdom tooth extraction and most recently decided on a night guard through them. I feel like I get up to date information on my oral care & health, every time I go in there. And while I’ve switched dental plans three times, they have accepted all three so far! Highly recommended!"- J.R. / Google / Jun 09, 2019

What to Expect
Metal braces for adults and youths are individualized based on the patient's goals and concerns. The duration of treatment will be based on the patient'ss case, but younger patients normally takes a shorter time and the patient will often prevent other dental concerns. The traditional braces are small brackets that are bonded to each tooth that are then connected with wires that lightly, but steadily move the teeth into their correct position. Patients should come back to Rock Canyon Dental Care in Highlands Ranch, CO to have their metal braces and progress checked once a month by our dentists at Rock Canyon Dental Care until the braces are ready to be taken off. While wearing braces, the patient may find it harder to floss and brush their teeth, but it is critical to follow a proper home care regimen and keep the teeth well-maintained during the patient's orthodontic treatment.
Once the braces are taken off, the patient will usually be provided with a retainer to wear that will deter the teeth from moving back to their earlier position. A retainer can be secured to the backside of the teeth or created as a detachable mouth piece based on the patient's preferences. Patients should start a good home dental care routine, including daily flossing and brushing, and visiting our dentists at Rock Canyon Dental Care for dental cleanings and dental examinations.
Insurance generally pays for a part of the expenses of orthodontics, but this is based on the manner of treatment and the patient's insurance coverage. Rock Canyon Dental Care in Highlands Ranch, CO will talk with each patient's insurance company to decide the benefits and personal expenses. Rock Canyon Dental Care takes many methods of payment and offers financing choices for our patients to make orthodontics reasonably priced.
