If you’re like most people, when you think of orthodontic treatment the first thing that comes to mind is the end result – a beautiful smile. While this this is the benefit from wearing braces that people easily recognize, wearing braces also has additional benefits such as improving your bite, which could prevent potential problems with the jaw later on in life.
How Orthodontic Treatment Works
Dr. Sonneborn and his staff will treat you in either our Jackson or Battle Creek office over the course of one to three years. Braces and other orthodontic appliances will be used to ensure there is adequate spacing for the teeth, as well as to reposition and straighten your teeth into a beautiful smile. Each course of treatment is tailored specifically to the individual needs of the specific patient, and the total duration of treatment varies depending on those needs.
While one to three years may seem like a long time, many patients are surprised at just how quickly time flew by once their treatment has been completed. When it comes to whether or not they felt it was all worth it, the smile on their face says it all!
