Orthodontist in Rancho Cucamonga
Orthodontics impacts you and your child’s health, appearance, and more.
Crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean. This makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and provide a more attractive appearance. A straight, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem, self-confidence, and you or your child’s self-image.
If you or your child suffers from crooked, uneven, or misaligned teeth, orthodontic treatment can help.
The length of you or your child’s orthodontic treatment will depend on you or your child’s individual plan. During the consultation with our team of doctors, we will discuss the different orthodontic options. Once you select the best treatment plan for you or your child, we will estimate its length.
There are factors that can affect the duration of your child’s treatment. Some of these include:
- Early Orthodontic Intervention: If your child had early intervention, some steps have already been completed. This may shorten the time your child needs for this treatment.
- Type of Treatment: Depending on you or your child’s needs, the best treatment plan may be braces, elastics, aligners, or other options. Which treatment you or your child receives will affect its length.
- Compliance: Following our instructions will allow you or your child’s treatment to work more quickly.
