A beautiful smile is a large part of looking and feeling your best. There are many ways of correcting crooked or malposed teeth. Moving teeth into the proper position can keep the teeth healthy for a life time.
There are usually many options available for the movement of teeth. There are removable appliances which have little wires and springs to push the teeth. There are appliances to expand the roof of the mouth, widening the arch and making more room for the teeth. There are metal brackets that are bonded to each tooth. There are clear ceramic or plastic brackets. There is an "Invisalign" type in which a thin, clear plastic mold covers the teeth and is changed every other week.
Orthodontic treatment can take from 6 months to 2 years, depending of difficulty and cooperation.
