Metal vs Ceramic Braces


In the first stage of orthodontic treatment, an assessment of the current state of your teeth and their likely development is made. This usually involves taking x-rays and making plaster models of the teeth. After completing the assessment, your Orthodontist will be able to provide more information about the type of treatment that is needed, and the likely results.

Before getting braces, you will need the following:

Orthodontic Records
Treatment Planning/Consultation
Risks and Limitations
Separators (not all cases)
Placing the Braces
Adjustment Appointments
Removing the Braces
Retention and Retainers
