A Brief Overview of Orthodontic Treatment

Posted .

Getting braces can be an intimidating experience for you or your children who need teeth straightened. We strive to make your experience welcoming and comfortable here at A&A Orthodontics so here’s what you can expect when you get braces.

Your first visit will be fairly simple. Our orthodontists will assess what kind of misalignment you have, take x-rays, and take impressions of your teeth to make models from. Using these, they will create a map for treating your misalignment and straightening your teeth.

A while later we’ll have you come back and attach your braces. We will tighten the wires to begin the alignment. You have experience some discomfort or even a bit of pain in these first adjustments, but we can provide painkillers to help.

After your braces have been installed on your teeth, we will have you come back into A&A Orthodontics every 2-4 weeks for 18-24 months for brief adjustment visits. This will continually push your teeth to their proper alignment, leading to the strong, straight smile you want.

Straightening your teeth will have a huge impact on your quality of life. At the end of treatment, you’ll have a beautiful, strong smile you can be proud of. So, contact us today to schedule your consultation.
