About Orthodontics

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you're self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with orthodontic appliances will greatly improve the way you look and feel.

When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you've always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, and our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.

How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or clear plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.

Duration of Treatment

Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors including age, treatment method, and severity of your case is. A big factor in a successful treatment is you! The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. 

Before beginning your orthodontic care, Dr. McCoy will discuss your orthodontic treatment options and provide an estimate of how long your treatment may take.
