Farmington Hills Orthodontics* & Braces
For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic* care.
If you’re self-conscious about your smile, having braces will greatly improve the way you look and feel! When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of as well as the confidence to show it off!
At Pesis Dental Group in Farmington Hills, we also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic* experience, so our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.
HOW ORTHODONTIC* TREATMENT WORKS
Orthodontic* appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.
Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose from brackets that are clear or metallic, and in some cases, the color of your appliance. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Today, any age is a great age to wear braces!
DURATION OF TREATMENT
Depending on several factors, including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is, treatment time varies and can last between one and three years. A big factor to a successful treatment is you, the patient! The more involved and diligent you are, the quicker and more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive, or early treatment, can also help provide a quicker treatment time later on in life.
Before beginning your orthodontic* care, your doctor will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics* and the treatments we provide.
CLEAR ALIGNER INVISIBLE BRACES
Clear aligner invisible braces are an ideal option for those looking to improve their smile without the visual impact that comes with standard braces. Additionally, clear aligner invisible braces can easily be removed temporarily for special occasions. This means that the duration of treatment will be more patient-controlled. Are clear aligners ideal for your needs? Call us today to schedule your consultation!
TRADITIONAL METAL BRACES
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth by using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore "invisible" when you smile. Lingual braces are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth; the metal appliances are created uniquely for you. Lingual braces are a very reasonable option for athletes, models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
Pesis Dental continuously studies the latest dental care techniques for your children and family so you get the best treatment at the best prices. Schedule your appointment today by calling 248-478-1650!
