Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities, primarily related to the alignment of teeth and jaw functionality. Orthodontists are trained dental professionals who specialize in correcting misaligned teeth, bite issues, and jaw problems. They use various orthodontic appliances like braces, aligners, and retainers to achieve these corrections. Click here to learn more about Dr. Allen!

There are several orthodontic treatment options, including:
  • Traditional Braces: These consist of metal brackets and wires and are the most common type of orthodontic treatment.
  • Clear Braces: These are similar to traditional braces but use clear or tooth-colored materials for a less noticeable appearance.
  • Invisalign and Clear Aligners: These are clear, removable aligners that gradually move teeth into the desired position.

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies widely based on the complexity of the case and the type of treatment used. On average, orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from 12 months to 36 months. Some cases may be shorter, while others may require longer treatment.

Orthodontic treatment is generally safe and well-tolerated, but there can be some discomfort and risks. Common discomforts include soreness or irritation of the mouth, lips, and cheeks when braces are first applied or adjusted. There is also a risk of tooth decay or gum problems if proper oral hygiene is not maintained during treatment. It’s essential to follow your orthodontist’s instructions for care and attend regular check-ups to minimize these risks and ensure the best results.
