How Orthodontic Treatment Works
Appliances for orthodontic treatment are generally comprised of ceramic, metal, plastic, or a combination of these substances. Some orthodontic appliances are removable by design, while others may be bonded to the patient’s teeth. In either case, the function of the appliance remains the same. Orthodontic appliance work by exerting force in precise directions to slowly reposition teeth.
You may have an image of orthodontics as metal bands that have brackets surrounding each tooth. Those orthodontic treatments are antiquated. Now you can have clear or metal braces (there are even some braces that have color if you desire it). Modern braces wiring is thinner, stronger, and less noticeable. Yet, the best part is the improvement in the duration of treatment.
Duration of Treatment
Modern orthodontic treatments have improved and the time required for braces has decreased. However, treatment times will always vary from patient to patient because no one’s oral situation is exactly the same. One of the greatest factors in the timeline of orthodontic treatment is your involvement. If you take proactive and consistent measures to care for your teeth during the treatment phase, your results will be more effective. Of course, Dr. Larson and the team at Yuba City Orthodontics will help you each step of the way.
