About Orthodontic Treatment

At Pedodontics, each treatment that we offer comes with its own unique benefits and advantages. orthodontic appliances use a variety of materials to straighten the teeth including both traditional and invisible options. 

Modern braces are designed to be smaller, lighter, and more comfortable than braces of the past, making them a more comfortable and discreet form of orthodontic treatment. Your Omaha Ne orthodontist will work with your family to help you choose the orthodontic treatment that best suits your lifestyle. 

How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?

Treatment time can vary widely from patient to patient, and your specific treatment time will depend on the severity of your orthodontic condition and the type of treatment you choose. Orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 3 years to complete, although most patients undergo treatment for 18-24 months. That said, it's important to follow orthodontic guidelines to ensure that treatment runs smoothly – so make sure to maintain a braces-friendly diet, wear your rubber bands or headgear as instructed, and keep up with regularly scheduled appointments at our Omaha orthodontic office. 

At What Age Should I Schedule An Appointment For An Orthodontic Screening?

For kids, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that parents schedule their first visit to an orthodontist at the age of 7. At that age, kids are entering a critical stage of their oral development as their permanent teeth will start to erupt and replace their baby teeth that fall out, if they haven’t already gotten some of their adult teeth already. By taking kids to see an orthodontist early on in their development, the doctor can provide treatment to prevent or fix any existing issues, while also creating a treatment plan for the future.
