Different Types of Braces
For many people, regardless of age, having braces can be a daunting process. With all of the teeth straightening options on the market, and all of the different types of people who need braces, deciding on what style or approach to take can be confusing and overwhelming. In order to help with that process, Dr. Jacobson has compiled an easily referenced list of options to help relieve some of the turmoil.
Will braces have a negative effect on my lifestyle or appearance?
Today, braces come in a variety of styles, materials, and colors that can complement your unique style or appearance.
How long before I can have them removed?
There are three important factors to consider when trying to determine how long you will need to wear braces:
Early Treatment: The sooner Dr. Jacobson can work on the orthodontic issue, the more expedient the resolution will be.
Extent of Correction: The amount of work is a significant variable in how long the treatment will take. Additionally, every patient reacts to treatment differently, which may mean that one patient may need 12 months, while another may need 16 or even 24.
Your Commitment: Taking care of your braces and appliances and making sure to be diligent about follow-up appointments and oral hygiene will all factor into your total treatment time. Make sure you are following all recommendations made by Dr. Jacobson to ensure that you are minimizing the amount of time it takes to give you the smile you have always wanted.
