About Orthodontics

Orthodontic care is key for many in achieving a healthy, stunning smile. If you feel self-conscious, braces can significantly enhance your appearance and boost your confidence. Once your treatment concludes, you’ll possess the dream smile you’ve longed for and the newfound confidence to showcase it. Our practice is committed to ensuring comfort and confidence throughout your orthodontic journey, providing top-quality care at every step.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic devices, made of metal, ceramic, or plastic, can be either removable or fixed brackets bonded to your teeth. These braces apply a constant, gentle force to reposition your teeth gradually. Modern orthodontics has evolved – no more metal bands around each tooth. Options now include clear or metal brackets and sometimes even the color of your appliance. Wires are less noticeable, and contemporary materials move teeth more quickly and comfortably. Orthodontics is beneficial for any age!

Duration of Treatment

Treatment duration varies, typically spanning one to three years, based on factors like age, treatment method, and the complexity of your case. Your commitment plays a crucial role in the efficiency of the treatment. For children, early treatment can often result in a quicker process.
Before starting, your doctor will outline all options and provide an estimated timeline for your treatment. Please schedule an appointment with our practice to learn more about orthodontics and our treatments.
