This orthodontic solution offers the greatest flexibility and results when it comes to alignment for your smile.
The Traditional Braces Process
The first step in the traditional braces process is an initial consultation. A consultation allows your orthodontist and our team to examine your smile, discuss your goals and build a workable treatment plan. After a consultation with your orthodontist, you will have an estimated time for the alignment process. With traditional braces, treatment time varies depending on the condition of your smile. At times, some prep may be needed before the braces can be placed such as a tooth extraction for a crowded smile or removal of excessive gum tissue.
Once all prep is completed, your traditional braces can be secured to your teeth. Consistent check-ups will allow your orthodontist to make adjustments as needed to keep your smile on the right track. By adjusting your braces, your orthodontist can determine which tooth will move and when they will move. With careful planning, your traditional braces can give you a confident, more beautiful smile! Following treatment, a custom retainer will be made to keep your teeth in place as they adjust to their new position. If you are ready to begin your orthodontic care, call our team today!
