Why Braces?

Why to Choose Your Orthodontist: 

There is nothing quite like the feeling a patient gets after having their braces come off. You receive a boost of self-confidence and just know that your smile is looking at its best. Your orthodontists at Freda & Suriano Orthodontics know that feeling great is just as important as looking great.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances can be made of a variety of materials, including metal, ceramic and plastic. Some can be removed, but others will include brackets that are bonded to the teeth. By having a slow, constant gentle force being put on the teeth in a certain direction- braces can move the teeth into the desired position over the length of your treatment. Overall- it is a great time to have braces! The technology has evolved so much in the last few years and continues to still. You can choose brackets that are the traditional metallic color, or even clear. Wires are also thinner and by using the latest materials- teeth move faster with less discomfort. 


Duration of Treatment

Time of treatment can range between one and three years, depending on the growth of the patient's mouth, and the severity of the problem. Every patient grows at a different rate, and thus will respond differently to our individualized treatment plan. The original estimate of time given at the beginning of treatment also may alter due to these same circumstances. For any prescribed, removable appliance (i.e.: Invisalign / a retainer), the time of treatment depends on the patient's diligence. There are also some early, preventative treatments and procedures that can take as little as six months to complete.
