Whether you are considering orthodontic treatments for your teenager or yourself, our doctors can deliver amazing results using traditional metal braces or aesthetic braces. While clear aligners have become increasingly popular in recent years, braces still offer unique benefits that should be weighed when pursuing orthodontic treatments.

On subsequent visits for adjustments, your dentist will check on the progress of the tooth movements. If you have any questions about your treatments, these visits are a great time to ask. The wire will be tightened or might be replaced if necessary, and any broken appliances will be fixed.
Additional Cleanings and Checkups
Throughout your orthodontic treatment, you will need to schedule regular cleanings and checkups in addition to appointments for adjustments.
