We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and our practice is dedicated to making sure you receive the customer service you deserve.
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 controlled direction, braces or clear aligners slowly move teeth to the proper position.
Duration of Treatment
Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors, including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case 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.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, we will discuss all your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our practice at (705) 431-0027 to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
