Q: Why should anyone have braces?

A: Proper alignment and spacing of the teeth and jaws can have significant, positive affects for your oral and general health in both the short and long-term. Having orthodontic treatment improves oral hygiene, reducing the risks of damage to teeth, tooth decay, gum disease, and heart disease. Orthodontic treatment can also eliminate the need more complex, and expensive treatment options later in life such as jaw surgery or the extraction of permanent teeth.

Q: How long will treatment take?

A: Treatment times vary depending on the complexity of each case. Docbraces uses the most advanced treatment methods and technology available to ensure treatment times are as short as possible. Good oral hygiene habits such as regular brushing and flossing and visits to your family dentist while in treatment can also help to decrease the length of treatment as well as compliance with recommended use of orthodontic elastics.

Q: Can I still eat my favorite foods?

A: Yes. You can still enjoy your favorite foods; however, we recommend avoiding hard foods like rock candy to prevent damaging wires or brackets. We also recommend brushing and flossing after meals that are high in sugar.
