Getting straight, beautiful teeth is no longer a question of which color of bands to put on your braces. Whether you need a lot of work before getting braces, or you just need some simple, easy aligners, there’s a wide variety of options from which you can choose.

The best way to figure out what will work for you is to understand the orthodontics process from start to finish. We want to take a few minutes and go over this process with you.

It’s not just braces
Contrary to popular belief, a dentist doesn’t just handle braces. In fact, Dr. Bryan Brassington works on all aspects of creating a great smile. That may include bite alignment, palate expansion, or even correcting a tongue thrust.

Straight teeth
Once you’ve had preliminary orthodontic work completed, it’s time to get your teeth straight. Our team at Richmond Orthodontics in Richmond, Virginia, can go in-depth with you to help you determine which of our many options are best for you. You may have thought that only traditional wires and brackets were your options, but for some people, clear aligners may also be a possibility.

Regardless of what you need from an orthodontic standpoint, we’re here to help. Understanding the basics will help you go into the process with a higher chance of success. For more information, call us today at 804-740-7281.
