Bright, beautiful smiles help boost confidence and self-esteem, as well as improve one’s appearance – and it lasts a lifetime!

Invisalign is a discrete option for your loved ones to help gain that perfect smile they’ve always dreamed of. It’s an especially great gift option for teens and adults who don’t like the look of tradi...

Congratulations on beginning orthodontic treatment and starting your journey toward a smile that you will be proud to show off! As you move forward, it is important that you know the names of the parts of your braces in case you need to describe any problems or questions to our team. So, what are the main terms you need to know? Depending on what type of braces you chose, the terminology will vary some.

What are the main parts of braces?

First, the square pieces that are bonded on each tooth are called brackets. Brackets can be made of stainless-steel metal or tooth colored ceramic and are usually put on the outside of each tooth. If you have lingual braces, the brackets are placed on the insi...

Treatment for All Ages

The American Association of Orthodontists recommend that kids see an orthodontic specialist, like Dr. Jolley, at age seven for an exam. This age is suggested because it is a good time to see if early treatment is needed. If it...

Maintaining good oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment is important for many reasons. If you do not keep your teeth clean during orthodontic treatment, it is possible for your treatment time to be delayed and white spots to form on your teeth. Jolley Orthodontics does offer whitening options after treatment, but we would like to prevent the spots from appearing first.

Brushing & Flossing with Braces

Brushing and flossing keeps your teeth and gums clean by removing plaque daily. Dr. Jolley recommends brushing for at least two minutes after every meal and flossing at least once per day. Make sure large pieces of food are cleaned out of your braces and remember to clean all parts of y...

It makes sense that the month most associated with candy would also be National Orthodontic Health Month, doesn’t it? With all those sweet treats that kiddos (and okay, parents too) just can’t resist, it’s the perfect time for some reminders about oral health and the benefits of orthodontic treatments for people of all ages.

It’s important to remember that in addition to regular dental checkups, orthodontics should be an ongoing part of your child’s dental health. Orthodontists specialize in aligning the jaws and moving teeth into proper alignment – which may sound scary, but is usually involves a pretty easy treatment plan that will result in the beautifu...

Are you concerned about mouth injuries from your braces while participating in a physical activity? Many sports involve contact with other people, the ball, or other equipment. With braces, it is important that you protect your smile from the possibility of any injuries because the opportunity to injure your mouth is greater with the appliances.

Wearing a Mouthguard

Dr. Cameron Jolley recommends that everyone who is in braces wear a mouthguard during physical activities that involve the possibility of contact with other people or objects. A mouthguard will greatly reduce any impact that you could have if anything was to hit your mouth. It will also protect the braces, the gums, the che...

Types of Retainers

Retainers are the key to keeping your smile straight and healthy after orthodontic treatment. Your teeth naturally want to shift over time as your jaw grows and your teeth grinding from eating. Good retainer wear during retention will keep you from needing orthodontic treatment a second time. It is important to follow instructions from Dr. Jolley once your braces are removed and your treatment is over.

There are three main types of retainers – Hawley, Essix and bonded. Depending on your unique case, Dr. Cameron Jolley might recommend one type or a combination of types for you. Each type is good for different situations and will keep your teeth from moving. Typically...

Treating Discomfort at Home

Sometimes when you’re eating, you suddenly feel a wire poking you. Look in the mirror. It could simply be a wire is bowing out and isn’t completely off the bracket. If this is the case, use your finger to push the wire back into place.
