For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you're self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns will greatly improve the way you look and feel.
When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you've always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.
How Orthodontic Treatment Works
Advances in orthodontic treatment mean there are more options than just metal braces! While traditional braces work for many people, we are able to offer Invisalign or clear braces to many of our patients. The key to moving teeth is to place a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction. Teeth can't tell the difference between Invisalign or braces.
Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets and, in most cases, Invisalign. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Today, any age is a great age to wear braces!
Duration of Treatment
Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is. A big factor in a successful treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive or early treatment can also help provide a quicker treatment time.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, we will discuss with you all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our practice to schedule a free consultation and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
