Braces are a tool that orthodontic specialists use to help straighten and properly align a patient's teeth. This straightening solution consists of small brackets that get affixed to the front of the teeth. All the brackets relate to a springy, thin metal wire. Over time, these components work together to gently move your teeth into their ideal positions.

Orthodontic Specialist

While your general dentist may recommend that you get braces, you'll need to consult an orthodontist. We will assess your teeth and provide you with a plan of action for straightening them with braces. It's important to note that braces do take anywhere between 12 and 24 months to reach the ideal straightening results that you desire. 

You can expect to visit our office every few weeks to get your braces adjusted. This adjustment helps to ensure that your teeth are gradually moving in the right direction and is necessary for us to track your progress. Contact Choice Orthodontics today!

You Have Options

One reason that many individuals hold off getting braces is that they're self-conscious about how they will look. With modern technology, there are many discrete brace options that you can utilize to enhance your smile. Just the simple switch of using a clear bracket instead of a metal one can help to drastically change the look of your braces. In fact, you'll likely be the only one that knows you're wearing them.
