What can an Orthodontist help with?
An Orthodontist can help to straighten crooked teeth, fix overbites, underbites, and crossbites, close spaces between teeth, and alleviate overcrowding of teeth. Additional complexities and problems with the jaw can also be treated by an orthodontist.
How do orthodontic treatments work?
Orthodontic appliances are made up of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They can be removable or rely on brackets bonded to the teeth. By adding a constant, gentle force in a controlled direction, orthodontic treatments slowly move teeth to the proper position.
Orthodontics treatments can vary in length from ten months to three years, depending on the patient's age, treatment method, and the severity of the case. Additionally, the more involved and committed a patient is, the more efficient their treatment course is. Your doctor will discuss your options with you at your initial consultation.
