Orthodontics is not just about straightening teeth. It is about achieving the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve for confidence that lasts a lifetime. Orthodontic treatment not only improves your smile, but it can improve your health! At Shoreline Orthodontics we use digital imaging and a detailed examination to create a customized treatment plan for each of our patients that results in a beautiful smile, a well-functioning bite and healthy jaw joints. Teeth that are better positioned are easier to keep clean! An accurate bite improves jaw function, increases chewing efficiency, provides long-term health to the jaw muscles and joints, and sustains the health of the gum tissue.
Our doctors and team pride themselves on offering excellent customer service and an exceptional orthodontic experience to all patients. Our goal is to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a professional, caring environment where patients are the top priority and where getting braces is a pleasant experience! We like to have fun while we’re at it!
There has never been a better time to consider orthodontic treatment at any age! Technology has significantly advanced the field of orthodontics, and there are so many options available to our patients. We offer traditional silver braces, or a more esthetic clear option. Patients often choose colors for their braces that get changed at every appointment.
Teeth move to their determined positions with gentle, constant force that is carefully controlled. The latest materials are advanced and designed to move teeth more efficiently with greater comfort.
At your first visit, one of our orthodontists will discuss your treatment time with you as length of time in treatment can vary from patient to patient and is generally based on the severity of your orthodontic issue. Several factors may affect your custom treatment time, but overall the average treatment time is about 18-24 months. You’ll be happy to know that 96% of our patients finish treatment on time or BEFORE estimated completion. Being a great patient means keeping your teeth clean, coming to your visits, wearing elastics when they are prescribed and not breaking brackets! You can help get your braces off on time!
