The Orthodontic Treatment Process


To see if orthodontic care is necessary for your smile, your orthodontist will examine your gum health and teeth to check for gaps, misalignment, and crowding. After discussing the different smile alignment solutions, your orthodontist can carefully select a custom treatment outline that best fits your unique needs.

Impressions and Digital Imaging

Next, your orthodontist will gather a comprehensive set of records. Detailed photos, x-rays, mouth measurements, and a bite impression or model will be taken at this time. Your orthodontist will then use the photographs and impressions or models to create your appliance.

Placement and Fitting

Once your dental appliance is created, your orthodontist will place it in your mouth and make necessary adjustments to ensure proper fitting and comfort. To ensure your appliance stays in tip-top shape, your orthodontist will provide you with care and maintenance instructions.

Next Steps

Schedule an appointment every 4-8 weeks so your orthodontist can track progress, adjust your appliance, and address any questions or concerns. No orthodontic journey is the same, but most treatments last anywhere from eighteen months to three years.

Types of Orthodontics

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are made from medical-grade plastic material to help guide your teen’s teeth into their preferred position. For teens looking for subtlety in their treatment, clear aligners can be an attractive option. ClearCorrect and Invisalign are two popular clear aligner options that can discreetly and drastically straighten your teen’s smile.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are one of the most common and affordable options to correct mild to severe tooth and jaw misalignment. These braces are composed of durable, medical-grade stainless steel brackets and archwires to produce a natural, straight smile.

Ceramic Braces

While similar in function to traditional metal braces, ceramic braces are made up of tooth-colored ceramic material that matches the natural shade of your smile. Many adult patients choose ceramic braces as a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces. With proper care and attention, ceramic braces guide your teeth to its coveted alignment for a healthy, straight smile and bite.
