Orthodontics can help patients achieve a beautiful smile. After your braces are removed, you will enjoy a more confident smile that will make you feel more accomplished. During treatment, you will experience a higher level of comfort.
The appliances used in orthodontics is composed of metal, ceramic, or plastic material. They are removable or become bonded to the teeth with brackets. Braces exert constant, gentle pressure on the teeth in a controlled direction, moving them to their natural and correct position. While patients are concerned about the comfort of braces, the days of metal bands placed around each tooth are over.
Current orthodontic treatments allow you to choose brackets that are made of clear or metallic material. The wires will have a less noticeable appearance and will move the teeth faster with more comfort.
The treatment time for most orthodontic appliances ranges between 1 and 3 years. This can depend on the severity of the tooth misalignment and the growth of the patient’s bone mouth. In some cases, wearing rubber bands or headgear can make a major difference in the quality of the results.
