WildSmiles braces give patients a creative way to express themselves during orthodontic treatment. These braces provide a customized look without changing how orthodontic treatment works or the length of the treatment time.
These unique braces are made with the same surgical steel as traditional orthodontic brackets, and so are considered safe and effective to wear . They provide fun bracket designs for your child to choose from!
What’s Different About WildSmiles Braces?
WildSmiles are designer braces that allow children and teens to get creative with their orthodontia. These special brackets give patients the freedom to choose from different bracket shapes, including stars, hearts, flowers, footballs, sports balls, and diamonds.
While WildSmiles braces allow kids to be expressive, they are first considered a form of professional orthodontic treatment. WildSmiles are just like traditional braces but with the ability to help patients choose their bracket style and get excited about braces!
Get a Custom Look with the Benefits of Regular Braces
While some kids dislike wearing braces, WildSmiles give children and teens a fresh take on orthodontia. In the past, braces have focused exclusively on correcting smiles, but with WildSmiles, kids can have the confidence of a custom look while still straightening their teeth.
WildSmiles doesn’t change the length of time or quality of treatment, and it won’t affect comfort either. Remember, the length of your child’s orthodontic treatment will depend on their unique smile as determined by a professional orthodontist.
The average treatment time for braces is approximately 24 months, but every case is different. Some patients will only need to wear braces for a few months while others will need them for a few years .
What Cases Can WildSmiles Braces Treat?
Since WildSmiles brackets work just like regular braces, they can treat all cases that traditional braces with standard brackets can treat. The only difference is that WildSmiles brackets extend beyond the “wings” on the bracket—the metal above the slot where the wire goes through—so you can see the shape, and doesn’t affect the cleaning of your child’s braces.
Regular braces are an excellent treatment option for all types of issues with your child or teen’s smile, including misaligned teeth, an irregular bite, gapped teeth, and crowded teeth. This means WildSmiles can work for nearly all orthodontic cases!
