While many people consider orthodontic treatment to be purely cosmetic, the truth is that it also has tremendous benefits for your oral health and function. Properly aligned teeth not only give you a great smile, but also improve your ability to eat and chew and are easier to keep clean and healthy with regular oral hygiene. Here at LasVegasBraces.com, we are committed to providing you with high-quality orthodontic care so that you can enjoy a lifetime of healthy, confident and beautiful smiles.
The most common orthodontic treatment available is braces. Braces are traditionally made of metal but may also be made of tooth-colored material. They are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth, where they gradually work to move the teeth into their proper positions. For patients seeking more discreet treatment options, our orthodontists may recommend Invisalign® clear aligners, which perform the same functions as braces in straightening your teeth but use special aligner trays made of clear plastic to give you a nearly invisible treatment.
The length of orthodontic treatment depends on the patient’s individual situation, including how they respond to treatments, the severity of the problem and the growth rate of the face and mouth. Most orthodontic treatment plans take between one and three years to complete. Our orthodontists will provide estimates for your treatment length and treatment cost prior to providing your care.
