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.
"I confess I entered the lobby with some anxious feelings. Years of youthful neglect coming home to roost. The entire staff treated me like I was their only patient for the day; but every chair was occupied. This is the only review I have ever written. These professionals are the best! I've dropped in just to say hello. (Am I crazy to feel this way toward my dentist?) Thanks again, Dr Lee, Pink, and everyone! Sincerely, middle-aged disgruntled man."- L.R. / Google / Mar 11, 2020

"Ever since Dr. Brandon Lee has come to this Rock Canyon Dental office my overall view/experience has changed significantly. Not only is he a perfectionist when it comes to his dental work, he is by far one of the most personable professionals I've ever met! He always takes the time to catch up with me and has an amazing memory of things we have talked about in the past. Additionally, he is extremely generous as evident with his monthly drawings; this month it's a beautiful wooden table that he made himself! I can't say enough about what a great dentist/man Dr. Lee is. I only hope he doesn't have plans to leave any time soon. Thanks brother and keep up the awesome job that you do!"- M.J. / Google / Feb 16, 2020

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.
