Q: What appliances are available?
A: There are many appliances available, like metal braces, ceramic braces and aligners. Your orthodontist will examine your smile and determine which treatment is right for you.

Q: How long does treatment take?
A: Treatment depends on the severity of the misalignments in your teeth and jaw. However, treatment typically averages to be about 18-30 months.

Q: Does treatment hurt?
