An Amazing Smile

Pitts21® Self-Ligating Braces have been carefully designed to give orthodontists the best opportunity to move teeth as fast as possible. This typically results in fewer appointments and faster treatment time than other types of braces.

Surprisingly Comfortable Care

The smooth rounded corners and edges of the braces are soft against your lips, creating a more comfortable experience. The low-profile design of the braces make them protrude less, reducing irritation.

Super Easy Hygiene

The small size and rounded edges make Pitts21® braces easy to clean. A quick swish with water will free most food from your braces.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best age to get braces?

For a lot of kids, the best time to get braces is between ages 10-14. This is the age when a child’s mouth and head are still growing. The exact timing depends on how quickly a child’s adult teeth come in. Braces can definitely still be effective in older teenagers and adults.

Do braces hurt?

Dr. Datwyler chooses Pitts21 braces, which have smooth, rounded corners and edges of the braces. So they are softer against your lips and create a more comfortable experience than other types of braces. The low-profile design of the braces makes them protrude less, which reduces irritation.

Are there alternatives to braces?

Clear braces and Invisalign are great alternatives to the metal braces that many people immediately picture. During your free consultation, Dr. Datwyler can talk through which options make the most sense for your specific needs.

As an adult, should I consider getting braces?

You might be surprised to know that about 20% of patients with braces are actually over 18. Many adults decide to get metal or clear braces because, while they couldn’t afford them as a kid, now they can. If you’re not happy with your smile, then metal braces can definitely a worthwhile investment for you. Even as an adult, orthodontics with braces can give you decades to enjoy your new, beautiful smile.

How long do I need to wear braces?

On average, kids tend to wear braces between 1-3 years, depending on the severity of the issue. Dr. Datwyler will determine the exact length of your treatment plan based on your specific needs.
