The reason why most people consider receiving orthodontic care is to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile that grows self confidence and self esteem. If you wish to have the best smile possible, you may need to undergo orthodontic treatment in order to achieve your straightest, best possible smile.
Orthodontic appliances consist of plastic, ceramic, or metal. They may either be brackets bonded to the teeth or removable. Applying a gentle force in a certain direction will result in braces gradually pushing teeth to the correct direction.
In the past, a bracket with a metal band was placed around each tooth. Nowadays, you have the freedom to choose between a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options that include metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign, and more to find the option that works best for your lifestyle and preference. The latest appliances are made to move teeth more comfortably and faster. Today, orthodontic treatment is convenient and possible at any age!
Treatment duration is not fixed and usually takes somewhere between one and three years, depending on a range of factors that include treatment method, age, and the severity of your case. YOU are a crucial factor in your own treatment’s success! The efficiency of your treatment will depend on your level of diligence and involvement. For children, getting early or interceptive treatment can also help reduce treatment time.
Before the commencement of your orthodontic treatment, your doctor will review all available options with you, along with the estimated duration of your treatment plan. To learn more about orthodontics and the innovative treatments we offer, give us a call today!
