Easily the most commonly known orthodontic solution, braces, are the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about orthodontic care. Orthodontics is a dental specialty specifically concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of misaligned teeth and jaw irregularity.
Orthodontic care doesn’t only help create a beautiful smile aesthetically, it also allows for easier teeth cleaning, clearer speech, and overall better oral hygiene.
Give us a call for a free orthodontic care consultation and become one step closer to having the smile you have always wanted!
What does orthodontic treatment involve?
There are three phases in orthodontic treatment. Planning, active, and retention. In the planning phase, molds of your teeth are taken, along with pictures and x-rays of your mouth and jaw. During the active phase, you wear braces or orthodontic appliances and make regular visits to your orthodontist for adjustments.
The retention phase is about maintaining the beautiful, new smile you have worked so hard for! Your orthodontist will remove your braces or appliances and make a retainer. You are usually only required to wear the retainer at night until your teeth are stabilized in their new positions.
