Orthodontic Treatments for Beautiful Smiles
Orthodontic treatment can help correct several dental conditions, including malocclusion, overbite, underbite, crossbite, deep bites, crooked teeth, and other problems. At Dr. Gallois and Dr. Mathew Rhee Orthodontics, you will receive the highest quality of care in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. We offer traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligner therapy.
Traditional metal braces produce high-quality results, can be fun and colorful with bands that are changed at each visit, and are very affordable. Metal braces are made of stainless steel and are attached to the outside of the patient’s teeth. These braces are designed to allow the orthodontist to move the patient’s teeth in a three-dimensional manner.
Ceramic braces work in the same manner metal braces do. They are clear braces attached to the teeth for a less obvious look. These are often popular with adults and teens.
Clear Aligner Therapy
Clear aligners work differently than braces and are most often used by those who do not want to appear as though they are wearing braces. Click to read more about aligners.
What to Expect During Your First Visit
Your first visit will begin with a consultation. Dr. Gallois will take a look at your teeth and jaw, including any x-rays your dentist may have sent to our office. He will present your options for orthodontic treatment, address your questions, and create a plan for your care.
How Long Will You Wear Braces?
Orthodontic treatment duration varies from person to person. In general, treatment lasts between two and three years, depending on the patient’s age, what treatment option they have chosen, the severity of the case, and their compliance with treatment.
