What are Orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatment is ideal for patients who have crowded or crooked teeth. It’s not uncommon for people of all ages to have teeth that aren’t perfectly straight. Unfortunately, when your teeth are crowded and misaligned, it can affect your self-esteem as well as your ability to keep your teeth as clean as possible. We offer orthodontic care to all of our patients as a way to perfect the look of their smile.
Why would Orthodontic treatment be needed?
The reason you might need or want orthodontic treatment is because your teeth are currently crooked, crowded, misaligned or you have a bite problem like an overbite or underbite. There is absolutely no shame in how your teeth look, but you might be wanting to find a way to improve your appearance and correct many of these issues. We offer different orthodontic treatment options that are right for you.
Who is a candidate for Orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontic treatment is great for most people regardless of their age. If you’re unhappy with your smile and looking for a change, we offer many different options for you and your loved ones. We often recommend having children come in for their first orthodontic consultation around the time they are about eight or nine years old. It’s never too late to consider straightening your smile. In fact, we work with a lot of adults who would like to get their teeth looking and feeling better.
What happens during the Orthodontic treatment process?
The orthodontic process begins with a consultation and series of x-rays. We will get to know you and your smile so that we can provide the best care possible for them. We can fit you with braces or clear aligners depending on your unique needs. With orthodontic treatment, it is crucial that you come in every few weeks in order to keep up with the treatment plan. This helps everything to go smoothly and prevents treatment from being prolonged. You can expect your teeth to be perfectly straightened in a matter of just a few months to several years depending on your own personal needs.
