What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment is a specialized field of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting irregularities in the alignment of teeth and jaws. It encompasses a wide range of treatment options tailored to address various orthodontic issues, including:
  • Crowded teeth

  • Misaligned bite (overbite, underbite, crossbite)

  • Gaps between teeth (diastema)

  • Jaw misalignment (malocclusion)

  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders

Orthodontic treatment not only enhances the appearance of the smile but also improves bite function, speech clarity, and overall oral health.

Traditional Braces

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces remain a reliable and effective orthodontic treatment option for patients of all ages. Made of high-grade stainless steel, traditional braces consist of brackets bonded to the front surface of each tooth, connected by archwires and elastic bands. This system applies gentle pressure to gradually move teeth into their proper positions.

Understanding Invisalign Aligners


Invisalign offers a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Custom-designed for each patient, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. With Invisalign, patients can achieve a straighter smile without the appearance of metal braces.

Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, similar to Invisalign, are custom-made plastic trays designed to gradually shift teeth into alignment. They are removable, comfortable to wear, and virtually invisible. Clear aligners are an excellent choice for patients seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment option, particularly adults and teenagers.



Retainers play a crucial role in maintaining the results of orthodontic treatment by preventing teeth from shifting back to their original positions. After active orthodontic treatment, patients are prescribed retainers to wear either full-time or part-time, depending on their individual needs. Retainers help preserve the alignment achieved during treatment and ensure a lasting, beautiful smile.

The Orthodontic Process

Initial Consultation and Examination

The orthodontic process begins with a comprehensive initial consultation and examination. During this visit, our orthodontic specialist will conduct a thorough assessment of the patient's oral health, including an examination of the teeth, jaws, and bite. We will also discuss the patient's goals, concerns, and treatment options.

Treatment Planning and Customization

Based on the findings of the initial consultation, our orthodontic specialist will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to the patient's unique needs and goals. This plan may include one or more orthodontic treatments, such as braces, Invisalign, or clear aligners, depending on the severity of the orthodontic issues.

Active Treatment Phase

Once the treatment plan is finalized, the patient will begin the active treatment phase, during which orthodontic appliances are used to move teeth into their desired positions. Patients will visit our office regularly for adjustments, progress checks, and any necessary modifications to the treatment plan.

Retention Phase

After completing active orthodontic treatment, patients enter the retention phase, during which retainers are used to maintain the alignment of the teeth. Retainers may be worn full-time initially and then transitioned to nighttime wear as directed by our orthodontic specialist. Consistent retainer use is essential to prevent teeth from shifting over time.

FAQ's About Orthodontic Process

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the severity of the orthodontic issues and the chosen treatment method. On average, treatment with traditional braces may take 18 to 24 months, while treatment with Invisalign or clear aligners may range from 6 to 18 months.

Orthodontic treatment can be beneficial for individuals of all ages, from children to adults. While early intervention (around age 7) may be recommended for certain orthodontic issues, orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, provided the teeth and jaws are healthy.

Discomfort or soreness may occur initially and during certain phases of orthodontic treatment as the teeth are being moved. However, any discomfort is typically mild and temporary and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and orthodontic wax.

Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment will need to visit our office regularly for adjustments, typically every 4 to 8 weeks. These appointments allow our orthodontic specialist to monitor progress, make necessary adjustments to the appliances, and ensure the treatment is progressing as planned.

Yes, you can continue to participate in sports and enjoy your favorite foods with braces. However, it’s essential to wear a mouthguard during contact sports to protect your braces and teeth from injury. Certain foods that are hard, sticky, or sugary should be avoided to prevent damage to the braces and tooth decay.
