About Orthodontics

 

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for choosing to receive Orthodontic care. If you're self-conscious about your smile, getting 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. Dr. Noel Sint and his team are dedicated to making sure that 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 slowly move teeth to their 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, in some cases, the color of your appliance. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Today, any age is a great age to wear braces!

 

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 outcome is you -- the patient! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive or early treatment can also help provide a quicker treatment time.

 

Before beginning your orthodontic care, Dr. Sint will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact Petite Dental & Orthodontics to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
