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 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, method, and severity of treatment needs. A big factor in 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 help provide a quicker treatment time.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, your treatment coordinator will discuss your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take.
