How Orthodontic Treatment Works
Orthodontic treatment works by using brackets, wires, appliances, or clear aligners to move or make room for teeth to align properly. This process is available for patients of any age. Whether you are a child, adolescent, adult, or senior, we can help you achieve the beautiful, straight smile you have always wanted.
Why Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatment is useful beyond aesthetic concerns. If you are having issues chewing or if you don't like the way your teeth look, visiting our Bellefontaine, Springfield, or Beavercreek orthodontic office for a complimentary consultation is a great way to find out if you need braces. Dr. Dhingra will take some records, go over what needs to be done, and discuss how we can achieve a great smile for you. Then, you can decide if you want braces or not.
Length of Treatment
The length of your treatment will depend on how much tooth movement is needed. It is also very dependent on patient compliance, which is why wearing elastics, bands, or aligners as directed is so important. Taking the proper care of your braces and appliances also affects the length of treatment, as broken brackets and wires can extend treatment time.
