What are Orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatment is crucial to improving the look and feel of your smile. If your teeth are crowded, crooked, unevenly spaced or if you have an under bite or over bite, it is important to consider adequate treatment. Orthodontic treatment is ideal for patients of all ages, so just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean that you should give up on your dream of having a beautiful smile. We offer a range of orthodontic options for our patients.

Why are Orthodontics needed?

Orthodontic treatment is different for each patient depending on their own individual needs. You will come in for a consultation before any orthodontic work is done. However, some of the most common reasons for needing orthodontic care includes:

  • Your teeth are crowded or crooked
  • Your teeth are unevenly spaced
  • You have an under bite or over bite
  • You’re unhappy with your smile

What makes you a good candidate for Orthodontics?

Every one of our patients who has crowded or crooked teeth and wants to make a change to their smile is a good candidate for treatment. Regardless of your age, we welcome you to come in for a consultation regarding your orthodontic treatment and care. We offer this care to children, teens and adults alike. It’s never too late to make a change to your smile and begin loving the way that you look.

What happens during Orthodontic treatment?

The first step is to come in for a consultation and exam. This allows us to create a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you. It is important that you keep up with all of your orthodontic appointments. If you fail to come in regularly for care, this just prolongs treatments and means you’ll be in braces for longer than was expected. You can begin to notice a change in your smile in just a few months and may need to wear braces for anywhere from one to three years depending on your individual smile.

If you are interested in orthodontic treatment either for yourself or a child, call us today and we will get you in for a consultation appointment.
