What are Orthodontics?
When your teeth are crooked, crowded or unevenly spaced, you may find that you’re simply unhappy with the way that you look. Fortunately, we offer orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages as a way to correct their smile. Orthodontic treatment is customized to each individual patient. For some, treatment can take as little as a few months and others may require treatment for two to three years.
Why is Orthodontic treatment needed?
Orthodontic problems don’t just have an impact on your self-esteem and confidence. In fact, if your teeth are severely crooked and crowded, you might even find it difficult or impossible to keep them properly clean. To correct both issues, we offer an array of different orthodontic treatment options that fit your needs. You will find that this treatment improves your self-esteem, confidence and the quality of your oral health.
Who is a candidate for Orthodontic treatment?
In order to determine if orthodontic treatment is needed, we will examine your teeth. This involves taking x-rays and impressions so that we can get a feel for which option is best for you and the best way to go about offering you treatment. Most adults, children and teens who want orthodontic treatment can easily come into our office for help. Treatment is a great way to finally achieve the brilliant smile that you’ve always wanted for yourself.
What happens during Orthodontic treatment?
The orthodontic treatment process will begin with an exam, consultation, x-rays and impressions. We use the impressions and x-rays to develop a unique treatment plan that is right for you. In order for orthodontic treatment to work effectively, you will need to make routine trips into the office. This allows us to adjust braces, if needed, and create new aligners that you will wear. You can expect the treatment to be completed in about one to two years depending on your own specific needs. You should wear a retainer nightly after treatment is finished to maintain your results.
