Orthodontic treatment can be a great way to achieve a straighter, healthier and more beautiful smile. If you’re interested in aligning your teeth with orthodontics in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, then you likely have many questions. Our orthodontist, Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla, is happy to help you find the answers you’re looking for by answering commonly asked questions.
Q: How does orthodontic treatment align the teeth?
A: Your orthodontist will align the smile by adjusting the orthodontic appliance you use. When adjusting the appliance, pressure will be applied to the teeth. That pressure will move the teeth into the right places.
Q: What appliances are available?
A: There are two different appliances that are generally used to align teeth: braces and aligners. When it comes to braces, there are many different types available, like metal and ceramic braces.
Q: How long does treatment take?
A: The treatment time depends on the severity of the misalignments in your teeth and jaw. The more severe the misalignments, the longer the treatment will be.
Q: Does treatment hurt?
A: Your adjustment appointments may provide a little bit of discomfort one to two days after the appointment, but this is to be expected and it can be managed. This means your teeth are moving!
