Orthodontics, commonly known as braces, deals with the straightening of teeth. Typically performed on teenagers, due to the growth potential at that age, can straighten out teeth with maximum effect. Adults can also benefit from orthodontic treatments to give improved appearance and self confidence.
It all starts with an initial consultation where records (photos, x-rays, models) are taken. After careful planning, we then discuss with the patients (and parents/guardians) the possible treatment options and costs. Once everything is ready, treatment begins followed by regular maintenance visits every 4-6 weeks. Generally treatment time is within 24 months depending on that initial problems and patient factors.
