Are you an adult who would like to get braces but look at your jammed, daily to-do list and think that there’s no way? We know your schedule is demanding, but with all due respect, you can squeeze them in.

The office of Ortho Inc. is proficient at diagnosing and treating all orthodontic issues, as well as providing the treatment needed to maintain excellent oral health. Even if you or your child is apprehensive about getting braces, rest assured that we keep all of our patients in good hands every step of the way.

Wearing braces is nowhere near as time-consuming as it was when you were a kid. Technology has come a long way since then, and that includes the field of orthodontics. The materials are more sophisticated, which means that less time is needed to finish orthodontic treatments.

If an orthodontist determines that metal brackets or clear braces would work best for you, the wires that apply constant pressure that moves teeth into their proper positions no longer stretch out after a few weeks. That means you wouldn’t need to make frequent visits to the orthodontist so she (or he) could tighten them. These days, however, the wires are made to apply more moderate pressure over a slightly longer period, which cuts down on the number of office visits.

An orthodontist gives her patients braces that will straighten their teeth as quickly and efficiently as possible, but office visits are still required. Intermittent visits also allow an ortho to monitor the progression of how your teeth are moving and your gum health.

If the orthodontist deems that you would best be served by invisible aligners, she will provide a few sets at a time so you needn’t keep returning to pick up the next version in the set.

The process doesn’t get much easier than that! Sporting the healthy, beautiful smile you long for takes less time away from your busy life than you assumed.

Ortho Inc.’s team is made up of friendly, highly trained specialists who are eager to help you feel comfortable and relaxed while receiving the very best in orthodontic care. For more information about us and how we can help you, please don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment.
