Are you considering orthodontic intervention for your smile? There are many types of orthodontic treatments available with varying treatment times. It’s beneficial to find the treatment that best suits your needs.

Wondering if orthodontic care is right for you? Orthodontic treatments are highly versatile and can correct a wide array of dental problems, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- A misaligned bite
- TMJ issues & neck pain
Types of Orthodontic Treatments
No matter how mild or complex your orthodontic case may be, there is an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve your smile goals:
- Traditional Metal Braces – A bracket and wire system that can treat even the most difficult cases
- Ceramic Braces – A clear, more subtle version of traditional metal braces
- Clear Aligner Therapy – A nearly invisible treatment that utilizes clear plastic aligners
Average Orthodontic Treatment Times
Treatment times will vary based on a patient’s specific teeth straightening needs and the type of orthodontic treatment they require.
