For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, orthodontics will greatly improve the way you look and feel.
After your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! Our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.
How Orthodontic Treatment Works
Orthodontic appliances include braces (made of metal or ceramic) and clear plastic aligners. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, these appliances slowly move teeth to the proper position.
Duration of Treatment
Remember, every very case is different, therefore, treatment times may vary (usually between one and three years). Several factors, including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is, attribute to the duration time of your treatment. In addition, you are also a great factor in how successful your treatment is! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving early treatment can help provide a quicker treatment time.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, your doctor will discuss all of your options, as well as provide an estimate for how long your treatment may take. Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment to learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
