Do you ever wonder about orthodontics, like treatment, appliances, and techniques? If so, you have come to the right blog! Dr. Greg Cook wants to answer all of your questions so you feel comfortable and confident when considering orthodontic treatment. To get you started on finding those answers, he is happy to provide the answers to frequently asked questions about orthodontics in Alcoa, Tennessee.

Why should I consider orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment can help you and your smile in more ways than you might realize. It can align your teeth, boost your self-esteem, prevent dental issues, eliminate the hard-to-clean areas of your mouth, and help you properly chew, eat, and talk. It can also correctly position your jaw and give you the smile of your dreams.

What types of treatments are there?

There are many different orthodontic treatments that can help you align your smile. The most common type of treatment is traditional (metal) braces. Then, you have ceramic braces (these are like traditional braces but they are the color of the teeth). Then, you have clear aligners (these align your teeth with nearly invisible mouth trays).

How long does treatment take?

Typically, treatment can last as little as 18 months or as long as 30 months. Each treatment depends on the condition of your smile.
