Teeth misalignment isn’t just a cosmetic concern – it can lead to oral and overall health problems, too! With regular visits to the dentist, we can detect potential issues early and begin the necessary steps for treatment, and protecting your health!
The term “orthodontics” most likely evokes images of silver and gray wired braces attached to a teenager’s teeth, along with an endless number of trips to the orthodontist. But modern-day orthodontics allow us to provide some nearly invisible teeth-straightening orthodontic treatments — like Invisalign — along with routine, restorative, and cosmetic care.
How long does it take to straighten teeth?
We have many teeth-straightening solutions available for patients of all ages, including solutions that are nearly invisible and can significantly change your alignment in as little as six months. The time it will take to straighten your teeth largely depends on the severity of your condition.
What are invisible braces?
Our orthodontist is able to straighten your smile with tooth-straightening systems that are nearly invisible using clear materials (i.e., clear brackets and wiring, and removable aligners) that are discreet and comfortable.
Does everyone need braces?
No. Only patients with misalignment problems need to wear braces. The best way to find out if you or your child will need braces is to call and set up an appointment for a consultation.
