Orthodontics Impacts Your Health, Appearance, And More.
Crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean. This makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and provide a more attractive appearance. A straight, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem, self-confidence, and your self-image.
If You Suffer From Crooked, Uneven, Or Misaligned Teeth, Orthodontic Treatment Can Help.
The length of your orthodontic treatment will depend on your individual plan. During your consultation with Hyde Park dentist, Dr. Kaufman, we will discuss your options. Once you select your treatment, we will estimate its length.
There are factors that can affect the duration of your treatment. Some of these include:
- Early Orthodontic Intervention: If you had early intervention, some steps have already been completed. This may shorten the time you need for this treatment.
- Type of Treatment: Depending on your needs, you may have braces, elastics, aligners, or other options. Which treatment you receive will affect its length.
- Compliance: Following our instructions will allow your treatment to work more quickly.
At Smile Design Studio of Hyde Park, we offer advanced solutions for your treatment. Depending on your needs, we may recommend:

Who is a good candidate for Orthodontics?
We will examine your teeth to determine if and when you'd benefit the most from orthodontic treatment. There is no right age when it comes to having the work done. For parents, it's a good idea to bring children in for their first orthodontic consultation around the time they are seven to nine years old. For adults, it's never too late to start loving how your smile looks.
What happens during Orthodontic treatment?
First and foremost, we will perform an examination, take x-rays and provide you with a consultation. We will discuss orthodontic options available to you so that you can choose what works best for your needs and budget. We will work closely with you when it comes to choosing the system that is right for your smile goals. You can then expect to come in regularly to have adjustments or new aligners made over the course of treatment. Your treatment can take anywhere from just a few months to about two to three years depending on what type of work is needed.
