The most obvious benefit of orthodontic treatment is that of an improved smile and self-esteem, but the real benefits are so much more important. Orthodontic treatment can help improve the function of your teeth, better oral hygiene, improved health in the long-term, reduced risk of injury, and reduced self-consciousness.

There are several signs that indicate whether phase one or phase two orthodontic treatment is necessary. This includes bucked teeth, an overbite or underbite, crowded or crooked teeth, poor alignment, difficulty chewing, teeth that wear oddly, excessive spacing between teeth, and thumb sucking that continued through an older age (six or seven).

Orthodontic treatment can really start at any age, however, if early treatment (phase one) is needed that must start between the ages of six and ten. Early treatment can prevent the need for jaw surgery and complications.

Placement of braces doesnt hurt, however, when theyre connected with archwires your teeth might feel achy for a couple of days. Additionally, surrounding tissues like your cheeks and lips could need some time to get used to the feeling of braces.

You will wear your aligners nearly all of the time, with the exception of about two hours per day. Invisalign treatments are different for everyone, but most patients can achieve their ideal smiles within one to two years. During that time, you can expect to make occasional dental visits to monitor your progress.

Following your treatment, you will no longer need to wear Invisalign trays. However, you will need to wear a retainer each day to help protect your new smile. It is also important to continue visiting your dentist for routine check-ups and twice-yearly cleaning.
