Orthodontic treatment can realign your teeth and bite, giving you a straight, even and healthy smile. Crooked or misaligned teeth can cause dental health complications.
Braces work by placing a constant, gentle force to slowly move teeth into proper position. The process takes time, usually from a few months to two years, until final results are achieved. Braces are available in a variety of styles, including braces that are coloured and designed to match your teeth.
After you wear your braces you may need to use a dental retainer to complete your orthodontic treatment. The retainer keeps your teeth in position while your bones and jaw tissues adjust to their new configuration.
