Why Braces?

For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics (braces). After your braces are removed, you will feel more confident.

How your orthodontic treatment works:

Braces can be made of metal, ceramic or plastic. They may be removable or brackets bonded to your teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the corrected position. You can choose braces that are clear or a metallic color. Wires are also less noticeable than they used to be  and the latest materials move teeth faster with much less discomfort to patients than in the past.

How long do I have to wear braces?

Treatment time ranges from 1 to 3 years depending on the growth of the mouth and face of the patient and the severity of the correction needed.

patients grow at different rates and respond differently to treatment so times vary. The patient's diligent use of bands is an important factor in achieving  the most effective treatment.

Adult Treatment:

Braces aren't just for kids anymore! Tooth alignment can be changed at any age if your gums and bone structure are healthy.

We offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups - including adults. Orthodontic treatment later in life can dramatically improve your self esteem and personal appearance as well as improve the health of your teeth and gums.
