Orthodontics

What are Orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatment is ideal for patients who have crooked or crowded teeth. Orthodontics can even help with malocclusion problems like open bites, over bites and under bites. Our goal here at J&A Dental is to provide customized orthodontic care to correct your smile. Orthodontic treatment is comfortable and can be done in as little as six months.

Why are Orthodontics needed?

We normally recommend orthodontic treatment to our patients who have crowded or crooked teeth. We can determine if you are in need of orthodontic treatment with a simple examination. Most patients can benefit from some level of orthodontic treatment and it can help in improving your confidence. Even if you’ve had orthodontics done in the past, you may need subsequent treatment if your past results were never maintained.

What makes you a good candidate for Orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatment is ideal for both pediatric and adult patients. We customize the treatment that you receive, so you always have the best options concerning your own smile goals and needs. We will have a consultation with you prior to beginning treatment. The consultation will include an examination and variety of images and x-rays so that we can personalize a treatment plan just for you.

What can you expect with Orthodontics?

The first step in having orthodontic treatment started is to come into our J&A Dental office for a consultation. We can help to determine what type of treatment is needed and the type of braces that are right for you. It is important that you come back to our office regularly to continue treatment. Forgoing treatment or putting off appointments only prolongs the treatment and the length of time you’re wearing braces. Because we have many orthodontic options readily available, you can have treatment done whether you’re an adult or are simply looking for treatment for your child who is in need of orthodontic care.
