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 with braces or Invisalign will greatly improve the way you look and feel.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.

Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets or clear aligners. Modern orthodontics wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with less discomfort. Today, any age is a great time to get the smile you've always wanted.

Duration of Treatment

Treatment time varies and can last between one to three years, depending on several factors including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe are the problems. 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 overal treatment time.

Before beginning your orthodontic care, you will have a chance to meet with the doctor and discuss all of your options and provide an estimate of treatment length.  One of our skilled Treatment Coordinators will help break down costs, estimate insurance, and make a payment plan that works for your budget.
