Orthodontics streightens teeth, bringing your bite back into alignment and improving both the appearance and functionality of your teeth.Treatment may take anywhere from several months to several years depending on the nature and how much correction is required to restore the natural look of your teeth. Treatment during childhood usually takes less time because teeth and jaws are still developing.Orthodontics can be done on both children and adults and with excellent results.A possible alternative or in conjunction with treatment may be a functional appliance depending on the individual patent and correction assistance needed.
