High-tech orthodontics are better than ever before when you’re looking for braces for children and teens.
We are proud to use hi-tech brackets and the latest technology in orthodontics in our practice. If you are looking for braces for your children and teens, we have the expertise to help you navigate the smile journey with your child. The state-of-the-art technology we use moves teeth faster, is more comfortable, and reduces treatment time. In fact, the latest brackets combined with Dr. Barton’s expertise have resulted in reduced treatment time and dramatically decreased need for permanent tooth extraction.
How long will treatment take?
The length of time required for braces to effectively correct dental alignment varies significantly depending on the individual and the complexity of their case. On average, most people wear braces for about 1 to 2 years. However, minor adjustments might be completed in less than a year.
After the braces are removed, most patients will need to wear a retainer to help maintain the new position of their teeth. It’s important to follow your orthodontist’s instructions about wearing and caring for your retainer to ensure that your teeth don’t shift back to their original positions.
Remember that these time frames are just averages. Your orthodontist will be able to give you a more accurate timeline based on your specific needs and the type of braces you’re getting. Regular check-ups and adjustments are also necessary for the braces to be as effective as possible.
Are braces painful?
Less Extractions and Surgery
The technology available in our practice enables us to provide beautiful orthodontic results while removing very few permanent teeth. A broad, attractive smile often depends on retaining as many teeth as possible. Also, by utilizing orthopedic bite correction along with our orthodontic treatment, corrective jaw surgery can often be avoided.
Fewer Office Visits
Our advanced orthodontic system allows us to complete treatment with far fewer appointments, as much as 47% fewer than treatment with conventional braces. We always enjoy visiting but we realize your time is precious. The convenience of fewer adjustment visits spaced further apart will ease parent compliance.
