Traditional Braces in Kewaskum, WI

The two main components of braces are the brackets that are placed on the teeth and the main archwire that connects them. The bracket is a piece of shaped metal or ceramic that affixed to each tooth. The archwire is bent to reflect your “ideal” bite and the way we want your teeth to look after treatment.

The wire threads through the brackets and as the wire tries to return to its original shape, it applies pressure that moves your teeth. Also elastics, or rubber bands, can be placed on the brackets and exert the proper force that creates the right amount of pressure to move teeth. For this force to remain constant, elastics must be worn at all times and changed every day.

Different Types of Braces

Metal braces are most popular with kids and teenagers. This age group loves using different colors of ligature ties. These days, braces are much smaller than ever before.

By eliminating the use of ligature ties, self-ligating metal brackets reduce friction between brackets and wires. This in turn reduces the total treatment time.

Translucent clear ceramic braces are most popular with adults. They are virtually unnoticeable. Because they are ceramic, however, they are more fragile.

Specializing in Braces For Children and Teens

Let us meet your child’s orthodontic needs as early as possible!

Two Phase Treatment

Phase One

Arch Development – Age 5 to 12

Early Treatment should be initiated for:

  • Habits such as tongue thrusting and thumb-sucking.
  • A constricted airway due to swollen adenoids or tonsils.
  • Bone problems (i.e. Narrow or Underdeveloped Jaws).
  • Mouth breathing or snoring problems.
  • A bad bite.

Phase Two

Braces – Ages 12 to 14

Teeth are straightened with braces. Braces usually take about 1.5 to 2 years

Our dental office takes pride in achieving excellence in dental health.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children be seen by an orthodontist by age 7

How do you know if your child should be seen for early orthodontic treatment? We know this can be a confusing time, but we are here to help. Here are 4 signs you should look for:

Early or late loss of baby teeth - Causes teeth misalignment

Mouth breathing - Affects the growth of teeth and jaw

Crowded or missing teeth - Results in chewing or biting problems, as well as irregular teeth alignment

Misalignment of jaw position - Can cause overbites, underbites or crossbites

“Being able to help and treat children with an orthodontic functional approach at an early age gives me great satisfaction both professionally and personally. I treat every child like they were my own, knowing that the procedures are completed in a safe, systematical manner and the outcomes will improve their overall health and self-confidence for years to come!”

– Dr. Sara Klasinski, DDS

Dr. Sara, the assistants, and the front desk ladies are so awesome to work with. They make it easy to set up appointments. They make you feel very welcome and comfortable from the second you walk in. I am very satisfied with how current Dr. Sara is on new practices. I struggled getting answers for my dental issues and when I met Dr. Sara she had ideas and answers how to correct my dental issues with modern practices. I couldn't be happier coming here!

The entire staff is so friendly and put me at ease. I have always been treated patiently and respectfully when I feel anxious or when I am having a dental procedure done. They are very knowledgeable of current treatments and skillfully and professionally execute them. When I had dental pain, but was not in the area, Dr. Sara called me back immediately to address my concerns. I am VERY pleased to call Kewaskum Family Dentistry my dental team!
