Orthodontics, or braces, is a treatment designed to correct the alignment of the teeth and the position of the bite. Depending on your individual needs, orthodontic treatment can last from one to three years.  People of all ages can receive orthodontic treatment and get the beautiful, straight teeth they have always wanted.

Braces apply gentle pressure to your teeth over a period of time, gradually moving your teeth into the desired position. A multitude of different parts, including wires, springs, brackets, and bands, make up the treatment we know as braces. Those who have crooked teeth, an underbite, or an overbite may benefit from orthodontic treatment. In addition, braces are an effective treatment option for all ages; you don’t have to be young to enjoy the smile of your dreams!

If you would like to learn more about orthodontics, we invite you to schedule an orthodontic consultation with our Wyckoff, NJ general dentist soon.  During your consultation, you and the dentist will review your various goals and dental needs and determine if orthodontia is right for you.
