The 411 on Braces: What You Need to Know

Who is a candidate for braces?

Using a variety of light-force, self-ligating technologies, we are able to streamline the orthodontic process, minimizing discomfort, reduce appointment times and speed up the overall length of treatment. Ask us about Damon, Innovation and other options.

Braces We Offer

At myORTHODONTIST, we offer the following braces:

  • Metal Braces: Straighten teeth using metal brackets and wires.
  • Clear Braces: Straighten teeth using clear brackets and wires.
  • Lingual Braces: Straighten teeth using brackets that are attached behind your teeth. These braces give the appearance of being "hidden".

Duration?

Duration of treatment depends on each patient’s individual dental needs.

Typically, treatment with braces can range from 1-2 years or more.

Pain?

Each patient experiences orthodontic treatment differently. Placing brackets on teeth are generally non-invasive.

However, some patients may feel some discomfort when wiring is placed onto the brackets and when teeth begin shifting.

Cost?

The cost of orthodontic treatment varies and depends on the level of treatment needed.
