How Treatment Works

There are several different kinds of orthodontic treatment you may choose from when it comes to creating a treatment plan for your teeth. They can be made of ceramic, metal, or plastic and are either removable or bonded to your teeth. Braces work by placing gentle force on the teeth consistently to control the direction teeth move in the mouth, easing them into alignment.

In the past, metal braces and wires were needed, and the teeth had to be covered by a metal bracket. Now, your braces can be clear, metal, or even colored. Wires are not as bulky and blend in better with teeth and the materials used to design braces and brackets are made with advanced technology that allows teeth to be repositioned faster, more efficiently, and comfortably.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

The exact duration of treatment depends on the patient as well as how severe your orthodontic issues are. The time it takes for completion of orthodontic treatment can be anywhere from 1 to 3 years.

Age also plays a role in how long braces will need to be worn, but the biggest factor to your treatment duration is your commitment to keeping up with your oral health. Being diligent is the key to making sure your treatment is quicker and more effective, so take care of your appliances and visit your dentist often to make sure everything is going smoothly. With dedication, you can have a beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.
