About Orthodontics in Mobile, AL

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances, whether made of metal, ceramic, or plastic, apply a gentle, controlled force to move teeth into their correct positions gradually. Unlike the past, when metal bands with brackets encircled each tooth, modern options include clear or metal brackets, and even the choice of colors for your appliance. Wires are less conspicuous, and materials are designed for faster and more comfortable teeth movement. Today, people of all ages can enjoy the benefits of braces.

Duration of Treatment

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies, typically spanning one to three years, influenced by factors like age, treatment method, and case severity. Your active participation and diligence play a significant role in the efficiency of your treatment. Children may benefit from interceptive or early treatment for quicker results.

Before embarking on your orthodontic journey, your doctor will discuss treatment options and provide an estimate of the anticipated duration. Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment and discover more about orthodontics and the available treatments.
