Gap bands are a new homemade orthodontic device designed for repairing dental malocclusions. However, this DIY orthodontic treatment can be dangerous — the wrong amount of pressure on the roots of teeth can lead to more problems than before.

Our orthodontist will supply patients with elastics or bands to help repair dental misalignments. They are nontoxic materials and are specially designed for attaching to the wires and brackets of braces.

How Can Speaks Orthodontics Help?

Dr. Speaks believes that the patient should be fully aware of their diagnosis, their treatment, and their progress throughout treatment. At Speaks Orthodontics, we arm the patients with knowledge which allows them to be involved in the treatment decisions.

All treatment plans are based on the patient’s’ unique needs and desires. These are determined by the analysis and diagnosis of the pre-treatment records and pre-treatment consultation and interview. We offer different types of orthodontic treatment, including:

  • Aceleent
  • Traditional metal braces
  • Ceramic braces
  • Invisalign®

Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We utilize the latest technology and offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options designed to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
