Although orthodontic treatment can be effectively administered at any age, the optimal time to begin treatment is early on in childhood at the first sign of orthodontic problems. Treating these problems initially ensures that the best results can be achieved with respect to time and cost. Early orthodontic interception is imperative to prevent serious problems later in adulthood. Creating room or preserving space for teeth, correcting bad bites, and shortening the treatment period for braces are just a few of the many benefits to interceptive treatment. Contact Dr. Arnold today to schedule an early treatment consult.

From standard metal braces to invisible aligners such as Clear Correct, there are many options available to best suit each patient. We believe any age is the perfect age to improve your smile. Visit us today and discover how you can achieve the smile you deserve.
There are various options available for the type of orthodontic treatment you can receive. Standard metal braces made of highly durable stainless steel are the most common type of braces. Ceramic braces, preferred mostly by adults, are a more aesthetic option due to the translucency of the bracket itself. Fastbraces® allows for treatment to be complete in about 20 weeks. Clear Correct®, which utilizes a computer-generated series of clear aligners to straighten teeth, is a no-bracket option that produces astonishing results.
Fastbraces® Technology typically works with just one orthodontic wire from start to finish. Fastbraces® Technology uses a special square super-elastic nickel-titanium wire which is activated by the special design of the braces. This dynamic wire helps upright the whole tooth using the natural temperature of the mouth in just one stage.
Clear Correct is the invisible alternative to traditional orthodontic procedures. Your treatment begins when the necessary impressions are taken. Using these impressions, a computer-generated series of custom aligners are made. Considering these aligners are removable and clear, you will be able to eat, drink, brush, and floss as normal throughout the process. Monthly visits are still required for Clear Correct, and the length of treatment time usually ranges from 2-9 months depending on the patient.
