Orthodontics 101

Whether you’ve always dreamed of having a beautiful smile, or your dentist recommended that it's time you see an orthodontist, orthodontic treatment can benefit patients greatly. Our goal is to help you build confidence and achieve a smile you are proud of.

Once treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! Your comfort and confidence throughout your entire orthodontic experience is our main priority, and Forster Orthodontics is dedicated to making sure you receive the quality care you deserve.

How does it work?

Orthodontic appliances are made of ceramic, metal or plastic. Some are bonded on the teeth and others are removable. Dr. Forster’s treatment plan is customized to each patients’ need and through constant, gentle forces and carefully controlled directions, braces slowly move teeth to their correct position.

Orthodontic treatment isn’t what it used to be! You choose between several options of types of brackets and colors of your appliances. The latest materials are designed to move teeth faster and with more comfort.

How long will it take?

Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on age, treatment method, and the complexity of your case. Believe it or not you are a big factor in a successful treatment! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive or early treatment can also ensure a quicker treatment time.

Before beginning your orthodontic care, Dr. Forster will discuss all 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.
