What are Orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatment is essential in correcting and realigning your smile. If you have severe overcrowding, crooked teeth or spaces and gaps between dentition, you’ll benefit from braces and other orthodontic treatment. We offer orthodontic treatment for both pediatric patients as well as teens and adults. It’s never too late to begin correcting your teeth and loving your smile.

Why are Orthodontics needed?

Orthodontic treatment is specific to each individual patient. We personalize your treatment plan so that you benefit the most from the work being done. Some of the reasons you may need orthodontic treatment include:

  • Overcrowding
  • Crookedness
  • Spaces and gaps
  • Overbites and Underbites

Who’s a good candidate for Orthodontics?

We will perform an exam to determine if you’re a good candidate for orthodontic treatment. Most people who need braces and other treatment options can safely have the work done in our office. We will take impressions of your teeth and special x-ray images to help create a special treatment plan that’s just for you. There is no age limit to who can receive orthodontic treatment, and we’re able to help adults and children alike.

What happens during Orthodontic treatment?

We start with a consultation to determine what type of orthodontic system is right for you. We will take x-rays and impressions at your first appointment to help in creating your own unique treatment plan. In order for orthodontic treatment to be effective, you should make it a habit to come into the office regularly. These appointments are essential in adjusting your braces and providing you with additional aligner trays as needed. Many patients will be in braces for anywhere from six months to about two years depending on how severe their misalignment issues were to start. We offer this treatment in a way that’s comfortable and fully monitored for you, and we will offer a variety of orthodontic options before beginning the work.

If you feel you’d benefit from orthodontics or have a child who needs braces, call us today and we can help to get you in for a consultation appointment.
