Orthodontic Treatment Options
We are proud to offer numerous orthodontic options to help our patients get the straight smiles they deserve:
Six Month Smiles
As the name implies, this is the fastest orthodontic treatment option we offer. Working to adjust only the front teeth that are seen when smiling, this treatment can fix minor imperfections related to crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, and crowding in the front of the mouth. Clear wires and brackets are used as a discrete way to move teeth.
This orthodontic option utilizes clear aligner trays to slowly transition the teeth into place. The aligner trays are removable, allowing you to eat what you enjoy, as there are no food restrictions. Since the trays are clear, they are less noticeable than other orthodontic options. This treatment plan can vary by patient, but can last an average of 12 to 18 months.
This traditional orthodontic treatment includes metal brackets, wires, and bands. The wires are adjusted to move your teeth to the desired location. This treatment plan can fix even the most difficult of teeth. This treatment plan also varies by patient but can last an average of 12 to 24 months. You can expect to visit our office on a regular basis to make any adjustments needed.
