Braces will align your teeth, making your smile more healthy and beautiful than ever before!
HOW ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT WORKS
Orthodontic appliances can be 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 a predetermined ideal position.

You can setup your first visit with our 89117 orthodontist today by calling our office or by making an appointment online! Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can choose brackets that are clear or metallic in color. You can choose the color of the ties that hold the wire in brackets. Wires are also less noticeable than they used to be, and the latest materials move teeth faster with less discomfort to patients.
LENGTH OF TREATMENT
Treatment time typically ranges from one to three years, depending on the growth of the patient’s mouth and face, and the severity of the problem. Patients grow at different rates and will respond uniquely to orthodontic treatment, so the time to completion may differ from the original estimate. The patient’s diligent use of any prescribed rubber bands or headgear is an important factor in achieving the most efficient treatment. Early treatment procedures may take as few as six months.
