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 between several month to a couple 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 and reduce future treatment challenges.
