Orthodontics, including treatment, appliances, and techniques, can seem a bit complex to many people, which can lead to many questions. Unfortunately, the “unknown” scares most and it often leads to ignoring their crooked and misaligned smiles. If you have questions about orthodontics, please don’t ever be afraid to ask our orthodontist, Dr. Gary Lee Breece, and our orthodontic team. To get you started with finding the answers you need, we are happy to provide the answers to commonly asked questions about orthodontics in Enid, Oklahoma.
Why should I consider orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontic treatment can take your crooked, misaligned, and unattractive smile and turn it into something you love and something you’re proud of. It can align your teeth; enhance your smile; help you prevent dental issues; allow you to chew, talk, and eat properly; and align your jaws.
What types of treatments are there?
There are many different treatments available, like:
-Traditional braces (The metal braces you see the most)
-Ceramic braces (Traditional braces that are colored to match your teeth)
-Clear aligners (Almost invisible mouth trays that cover the arch of your teeth)
How long does treatment take?
Treatment is different for everyone because it depends on the severity of the misalignments. Typically, orthodontic treatment can last anywhere from 18 to 30 months. The more misaligned your teeth are, the longer the treatment will take.
