About Orthodontics

Most of our patients come to us to improve their oral health while also enhancing the look and feel of their smiles. If you feel insecure about the way your smile looks or functions, you can improve your self-esteem and confidence by correcting these issues with braces or other appliances.

Once you complete your treatment plan, you will be rewarded with the most symmetrical and harmonious smile that you will love to share with the world. Rest assured that one of our top priorities is to help you feel comfortable and confident during your entire treatment while you receive the top-of-the-line care you need and deserve.

HOW ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT WORKS

Orthodontic appliances come in a variety of shapes, materials, and sizes. The most popular orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. Appliances can also be removable like in the case of clear aligners or they may stay bonded to your teeth such as in the case of braces. Either way, most appliances work by applying a gentle and controlled force to shift the teeth into their proper positions.

Orthodontic appliances have evolved, today, you have more choices than ever to find a treatment option that completely meets your needs. You can choose between clear and metal brackets, wires are more discreet, you can achieve results faster than ever, and with increased comfort. Today, there are options available for patients of all ages!

DURATION OF TREATMENT

The length of your treatment will vary depending on a variety of factors including the details of your diagnosis, treatment plan, and your age. However, it is important to remember that one of the largest factors is you and your commitment to treatment. The more committed you are to following your treatment as prescribed, the better the results you will obtain. Patients who receive early or phase one treatment can also benefit from more efficient treatment times.

But don’t worry, all of these factors will be defined and explained before your treatment begins. Once your treatment plan is established, Dr. Dunn will explain how long your treatment is expected to take.
