About Orthodontic Treatment

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason to receive orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, addressing your concerns with braces will greatly improve the way you look and feel.

When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and our practice is dedicated to making sure you receive the quality care you deserve.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces steadily move teeth to the proper position.

Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets and add colors for a little flare! Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort.

More than ever, teens and adults are choosing Invisalign as their appliance of choice. These clear, removable aligners are effective, less noticeable, and more comfortable than traditional braces. Ask Dr. Trentini what he thinks is best for you!

Duration of Treatment

Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors, including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is. A big factor in a successful treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving early intervention can reduce future treatment complexity, which can also translate into less time with braces.

Before beginning your orthodontic care, Dr. Trentini will discuss all your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
