About Orthodontics

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 planned and controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.

Duration of Treatment

Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors, including age, treatment method, and the complexity of your case. We take everything into consideration when tailoring a treatment plan specific to your goals and needs. One thing to remember is 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 ensure a quicker treatment time.
