How orthodontics improve your tooth alignment
Orthodontic treatment can be provided with Invisalign®, related aligner based treatment, and traditional braces. Each treatment process works to correct your bite and tooth alignment.
Braces or aligners (like Invisalign®) apply gentle, corrective pressure to your teeth. The movement is gradual and brings your teeth back into their proper position throughout your treatment period.
The type of orthodontics used to align your teeth is determined via an initial examination. Your bite, current tooth alignment, and overall oral health will contribute to the type of orthodontic treatment used.
What to expect from your orthodontics treatment
Most orthodontic treatment requires six to 24 months to complete. The treatment period will be determined by specific details of your case. Each phase of treatment corrects your tooth alignment according to the method used.
Braces treatment follows a series of adjustments to assure that they’re effectively moving your teeth into a healthy position.
Invisalign® relies on a series of custom-fitted, clear, removable aligners to be worn throughout the duration of treatment. Each aligner is designed to gradually adjust your tooth alignment resulting in a straight, healthy smile.
