Everyone wants a beautiful smile, and most of us are willing to do what it takes to have one. Braces and other orthodontic appliances do more than just help you get a great smile.
Sometimes, the goal is more practical and critical: correcting your bite, chewing, or improving your airway and oral habits. This is an area of medicine called “Myofunctional Orthodontics.”
Dr. Brian Prudent is trained in Advanced Lightwire Functionals (ALF) orthodontics, which involves total facial development, myofunctional therapy and proper functional breathing.
During an orthodontic consult, you’ll be provided with a thorough explanation of treatment options, treatment duration, and costs.
When it comes to bite issues there’s a chance early intervention can help reduce, or even potentially eliminate, the need to wear braces. Sometimes repositioning the jaw at a young age can give adult teeth the space and proper position to come in correctly.
If we determine that braces are the best route for you, advances in that area have changed how long they’re needed and how they appear. Most patients wear braces for one to three years, depending on correction needs, the diligence of the patient and the myofunctional component of muscular retraining. Many orthodontic options are available as well as “invisible braces.”
We want you and your family to have the best treatment for your smile. Many payment types are accepted with low and no interest financing options.
